Homemade Old-Fashioned Eggnog

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 0 0

I don’t love eggnog. I know, I know, it’s shocking. { Is it also shocking for me to admit I don’t really love pumpkin pie either? I don’t. }

The other day J picked up some eggnog from the grocery store – probably the first day that eggnog hit the shelves. Every year I try to like it – I’ll try it straight up, with rum, in my chai tea, in my coffee… and every year I’ll drink a quarter glass and be done with it { although I do enjoy it as the creamer in my coffee… don’t knock it til ya try it! }

So when I was leafing through my Masala Farm cookbook on the weekend to plan meals for the week, I noticed a homemade old-fashioned eggnog recipe. I’ve been feeling the Christmas-vibe lately, and I know that almost anything homemade is better than store-bought, so I decided to give eggnog another chance.

A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Saturday, October 19, 2013 0 0

 We went to the pumpkin patch today! I love the pumpkin patch, even though I am no longer a kid! It’s so fun wandering all the fields of pumpkins, munching on fresh crisp apples and hot apple cider, walking through the hay, and getting a tractor hay ride!

Friendsgiving 2013

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 1 0

It was Thanksgiving this weekend {where did the time go?!} and J and I decided we wanted to host a big turkey dinner and call it “Friendsgiving.” Both our families were out of town this weekend but we still wanted to eat delicious turkey! So, on Saturday we prepped and cooked all day – turkey, bread stuffing, scalloped potatoes, honey ginger carrots, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie… Our house was filled with the most delicious smells and felt so cozy with the sun streaming in the windows.

It was so much fun putting on a big dinner for friends – everyone brought wine and ate so much delicious food – so much less stressful than putting on a big dinner for family; friends don’t care, they just want to hang out and if there’s good food, then that’s even better!

And then – there’s this cheesy and amazing photo of J and I, host and hostess with the mostess.

 

Happy Thanksgiving!
