    Think Big Kev has departed to live in the Great Soap factory in the Sky Thx for the voucher! Buckscoop has been great and all the best for the New Year!
  • admin EDITOR
    And Wally, Fairybelle and Craftykiwi - the $5 vouchers were courtesy of lilpretzel. I know it sounds cheesy but I do like the generosity that people show around here - it pops up often. It helps overcome some of that everyday cynicism you pick up about people. So a heatfelt thank you.
  • yovi
    Thanks Nod and Lilpretzel for the great xmas trivia. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
  • ScarletRubies
    admin;31624
    Thats just plain wrong..... eggnog....... !
    I think real eggnog is supposed to be full of brandy or something. Don't really know; I'm actually having coffee, and just pretending to be a morning drinker! :)
  • hagefade
    3 Cheers For Lilpretzel & Nod! Hip Hip!
  • ScarletRubies
    hooray...!

    I think real eggnog is supposed to be full of brandy or something.
    Wouldnt brandy curdle it ? Be more like floaty egglumps in brandy and something viscous.
  • nod
    Re the actually pressies.... they will be sorted by the end of today!!!! http://bestsmileys.com/christmas1/17.gif
  • photographyisart
    hip hip....
  • ScarletRubies
    Here you go, Donkey... Traditional Eggnog Recipe 12 eggs, separated 6 cups milk 2 cups heavy/ thickened cream 2 cups bourbon 1+ ½ cups sugar ¾ cup brandy 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg In a large bowl and using a mixer, beat the egg yolks together with the sugar for approx 10 minutes (you want the mixture to be firm and the colour of butter). Very slowly, add in the bourbon and brandy - just a little at a time. When bourbon and brandy have been added, allow the mixture to cool in the fridge (for up to 6 hours, depending on how long before your party you're making the eggnog). 30 minutes before your guests arrive, stir the milk into the chilled yolk mixture. Stir in 1+ ½ teaspoons ground nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat the cream with a mixer on high speed until the cream forms stiff peaks. In yet another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture. Gently fold the cream into the egg mixture. After ladling into cups, garnish with the remainder of the ground nutmeg. Serves: 8.

  • ScarletRubies
    Maybe the bourbon counteracts the brandy... ? I never suspected brandy would curdle eggs.

    Sorry about that photo, have you checked your bulk/spam/junk folder? It might have ended up there by mistake. Nod should be on soon to sort it out otherwise. :)
  • photographyisart
    thanks will do.
  • photographyisart
    nope not in the spam folder... will wait till nod comes on
  • golfwidow

  • yovi
    I haven't got my present either... :(
  • nod
    I checked into this for you guys and replied to your PM's It appears that for some reason a merchant has only emailed out half of my order.... :mad: Which I find very odd. And I have not received any communication from them to say there is a problem. Hopefully I can get hold of someone tomorrow but I am not sure Sorry about the delay :( I just have no idea why 1/2 would be fine and 1/2 they wont send :(
  • nod
    It appears that the order has now been shipped - everyone got their pressies?vouchers?
  • MamaK
    Yes- thank you Nod :) Hope you had a fabulous chrissy
  • golfwidow
    I still dont have anything in my inbox....normal or junk
  • photographyisart
    yes thanks :) i received my pressie :P
