A Colorful Tale of a Garden in the Making

Merry Christmas My Egg Noggin’ Bloggin’ Friends


Every year I make my Christmas cards. I am sending you my egg noggin’ bloggin’ friends, an electronic version.

Hope you find time away from the rush 
to enjoy the spirit of Christmas 
and “CHILL.”

Single Serving Egg Nog
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg, well beaten
2 ounces your favorite CHILLed liquor (rum, bourbon, brandy, cognac, kahlua …)
1 rounded tsp confectioners (powdered) sugar or other sweetener
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Ground nutmeg
In a small bowl beat the egg. Add the milk, liquor, sugar and vanilla. Whisk until well combined. Pour into a CHILLed glass and sprinkle with nutmeg. Then enjoy and CHILL yourself for awhile.

After the rush, I certainly owe some of you a much needed visit. That puppy Mojo is also keeping me busy! I do find myself already longing for the garden and I am certainly planning new beds and plants to try in my head – no visions of sugar plums here! I really can’t wait to get back at it. Enjoy your holiday everyone.
