    When I was a kid in the 1970s/80s, we would take a raw egg and mix it with milk, sugar, and eggnog. With the lack of cleanliness in the egg industry today, you don’t dare do that for fear of salmonella.

    When I was growing up, all eggnog was homemade and everyone argued about who’s mom made the best. Not that we ever turned down any from ANYONE’S Mom. Of course it wasn’t until years later that I found out why the dad’s liked it too — fortified, of course.

    No matter how it’s fortified, I never have liked it. Give me the “fortification” and skip the nog.

    In the 60’s, when my son had lost weight from the flu, the pediatrician had me make eggnog (without the rum) everyday for a week.

    Unless you buy directly from a farmer who raises his chickens in clean conditions. I trust the eggs from Paul’s “girls.”

    I my sub would allow, I’d raise them myself which would be even better.

    A liberal dose of Egg Nog in a glass of iced coffee is yummy.

    I’ve tried to make it several times using different recipes. I just prefer the stuff from the grocery – then I pollute it by adding some Nestle’s Quik and then nuking it like hot chocolate. That’s how I like my eggnog. It’s also good replacing half the milk called for in cook-n-serve chocolate pudding. I know, I know – I’m a sick puppy.

    ^^ The whole reason I don’t drink egg nog. I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t like cinnamon and I can’t stand eggs. I used to have to make french toast at work at least once a week, for three years.

    It’s odd that I like this strip, because I also can’t stand coffee. Give me a nice raspberry tea and I’m happy.

    Oh, btw, you can get eggs pasuerized in the shell. It is worth it, for those who like eggs.

    ‘pasteurized’ I mean.

    “Nog it off!”
    That’s funny, Laura.
    Most likely, the term “nog” comes from Gaelic or some other early English word.

    I think anyone who needs to know where “nog” comes from could just Google it…..!

    You’re neither sick nor a puppy.
