An email from my Aunt that had me laughing ... and then I realized that if this had happened to me I totally would have blogged about it ;-) Enjoy!


I just made a gallon of YOUR eggnog recipe…. I had to go out and buy a container (which I will have to move!) in order to hold that much eggnog…. Yeah, yeah, I could half it… which I did… but the smallest container I could find was 3 gallons at Wegemans…. So… I had to put the container together…. No biggie…. Or so I thought…. Back to the liquor store twice… thought I had rum (don’t know why, I don’t drink it).. also bought what we are bringing to you (one more thing to move before Christmas… and its heavy!) so I’m realizing I need a lot of bowls to whip and stir.. of course I didn’t have all this stuff out… and the beater cord drops in the cream.. ok, I’ll just lick it off at this point…. Which, when I pulled it up, knocked over the bowl with the egg whites…. All over the counter, the floor, my feet…. Oh Cooper is a happy boy, but not as happy as he ‘s going to be….. scr*w it, I’ll pour everything into the new serving container with spigot that I bought… that will fix everything… sure will….look down and the spigot is pouring out eggnog.., down the counter into the cabinets, onto my clothes, feet and floor… NOW Cooper is a happy boy… I’d already poured the rum and bourbon into the mix…. I’m screaming at him, he’s like, yeah right,….. and I finally got the container at an angle to keep it from spilling out….. ya know, this stuff is good… I can’t wait until it ferments for tomorrow and the day after, and the day after….. it’s on the back porch as there is no room in the fridge….. oh well, I cleaned up the counter, wiped down the cabinets and all the stuff that got covered…….. hope the new owner likes the fragrant… I’m not cleaning anymore!!!!

Can’t wait to see you guys… love to all….. with a smile :-)

OK, now I know this kind of stuff really does happen to other people, too, and not just to me! Thanks, to your poor Aunt B.

I figured Cooper was a dog....He must have thought he died and went to heaven. The ingredients all sound so good.
