First off there was many cuddles, laughs and dancing in the morning by all -
(please play this and attempt to do housework without swaying your hips and shoving your hands in the air with a bit of congo line action thrown in. I dare you.)
--then it was down to business. Wrapping, Cleaning, caring for poor Monty with a fever, Cleaning, Baking, Making - you know how it is.
Well I've hit the 3 o'clock slump.
Enter a nourishing warm drink on our cool Summer Solstice day.
Real Raw Eggnog:
3 cups raw milk
begin warming on cooktop
add 2T coconut sugar or natural sweetener
1t pure vanilla
5 egg yolks
1/2 t cinnamon
and a great big grating of nutmeg
get your kitchen stick mixer into the warmed milk and sugar and make it go as you slowly add the yolks.
Will foam up to perfection.
Serve with a dash of brandy and another good grating of fresh nutmeg.
Then grab ahold of your day again before it's all over.
Off to the kitchen!
