baby, it's cold outside....
i have to admit, even though i know the holidays are over and i am thankful that i survived them with only a stint on crutches, i think i might maybe kinda miss all the hub-bub a teeny bit.
something about seeing our tree on the curb this evening coming home from work got to me. it's sad.
so while i huddle inside this evening because (i know, people have been saying 'it's cold this' and 'it's cold that' all day) it's freaking cold out there, i wil be sipping away on one of the greatest holiday drinks known to mankind, waxing poetic about how great the holidays are. in hindsight.
tom and jerry
makes a butt-load of servings
18 egg yolks (i guess whites can also be used instead, but i've never tried it)
2 lb powdered sugar
3 drops oil of cinnamon
3 drops oil of clove
one heaping spoonful of batter
2 oz blended whiskey
add hot milk (or water)
sprinkle with nutmeg
delicious! (and faux-pressive, too!)
besides, if my leg is still recovering from my spill (and subsequent crutches) and i'm not allowed to go to the gym, i might as well have a cocktail. (gee, that decision seemed easy!)
besides, it's like, really, really freakin' cold out there.
