  1. My family loves eggnog, but we usually buy it at the store. When I was in high school, that was the special treat that I always made for my dad and me. I should make it again!

  2. A friend made homemade eggnog for us once. So much better than the store bought stuff – this looks like a fairly easy recipe to follow too! Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party! Hope your holidays are wonderful!
