Use Those Holiday Leftovers!

Happy New Year, friends!

You know how it is -- your household is thrilled when you buy eggnog in early December, only to tire of it completely by the end of the month. Well, I didn't buy mine in early December, more like just before Christmas as it was on markdown. Anyway, I have the same problem that many of you find yourself with -- eggnog that is no longer appealing or is beginning to sour.

What to do? Use it! Use it in pancakes, waffles, cupcakes, muffins, scones, or anywhere else you would bake a sweet treat. Use one of your regular recipes and cut back on the sugar by half, add an extra 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Voila, eggnog waffles, pancakes, muffins, or scones. Nothing wasted means a gain for my family and our budget.

We're having eggnog waffles in our house this morning, continuing the celebration of the holiday season. Any leftovers will be frozen for quick breakfasts later this month.

I have lots to talk about this month. Enjoy your holiday today! I'll be back again tomorrow! Happy New Year to all!
