Southern Comforts

Just as I enjoy the plethora of pumpkin-flavored foods that appear around Thanksgiving, I eagerly await eggnog season come December. Homemade, of course, is superior, but I have been known to enjoy copious amounts of the off-the-shelf variety, as well. You can imagine my dismay, then, when I polished off a bottle of Labrot & Graham a couple of evenings ago and still had half a carton of eggnog left. Drat.

Last night, I was digging about in the liquor closet looking for some suitable substitute when I discovered a nearly full flask of SoCo and an entirely unopened bottle of L&G. Hallelujah! A Christmas miracle.

This morning, after returning home from the auto dealership, I found myself surveying the kitchen landscape for fitting breakfast foods. I settled on the apple galette left over from Sunday's Praise Band party and immediately began mixing an eggnog to accompany it. As I was grating nutmeg into the glass, I realized it was only 10 am. Habit had mandated that I fill the glass half full with bourbon; it was too late! There was no way I was going to waste that eggnog (or that whiskey). Apparently, I was going to be drinking before noon.

For the record, eggnog makes a fantastic meal. Comparable to yogurt, I'd say. And this has qualified as my best morning so far this week.
