"Oh I ALWAYS thought store bought eggnog was the GREATEST every year. until I made homemade eggnog one year. OHHH! Wonderful! I make a non-alcoholic version with rum extract, too. It is sooo great. But i will miss my homemade stuff this year (though I wont begrudge the others who look forward to my treat every holiday...so I will still make it for them)" -- TMILLERRN - 12/1/2010 10:32:55 AM
