HOMEMADE EGG NOG

1 cup milk
1 farm fresh egg
1 Tbsp. Vermont maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
For those wanting some additional kick, add an (optional) jigger of season’s spirits (Kahlua, Irish Whiskey, etc.)

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Turn the blender on high for about 20 seconds. Find your favorite holiday glass, sprinkle with nutmeg and cinammon, and enjoy!

On eggs…for those in the Texas area on January 7, 2012, don’t miss the Winter Bluebonnet Egg Show at the 2012 Bluebonnet Classic in College Station.  Don’t be shy about showcasing your own eggs at the show.  From backyard novice to experienced chickenist, all are welcome to enter or just come out for the fun.
