Since I mentioned my desire for eggnog and rum in the previous post, I think I should explain:
I had my “first” eggnog within the last week. I say “first” because I think I had it once or twice when I was five or six years old. But I have no memory of what it tasted like. There are few foods and drinks that I don’t like, but yogurt is one of them. I had it in my mind for some reason that eggnog tasted like yogurt. But one evening, a few days back, my father-in-law was making some and asked if I wanted. I threw caution to the wind and said, “Sure, what the heck.” He made it with rum and nutmeg.
It was absolutely delicious!
I had it again a night later and nursed it for close to an hour as I read a novella.
When we got back from vacation–that very afternoon I headed over to the local Target to see if they had any. Of course, they were all out. So I walked next door to Safeway–and they were out too! I was bitterly disappointed.
So it was with a shiver of excitement that I ordered the “Christmas Cheer” from the drink menu at The National Pasttime today, grateful to Kelly for pointing it out to me. And, of course, they waiter came back and said the bar was out of eggnog. Sigh!
Looks like I’ll have to wait nearly a year before I can have it again.
