1  COOKING / Dessert / New Englander's Egg Nog on: December 21, 2009 08:51:42 PM
As I left Dunkin Donuts with my iced coffee, my hair blowing wildly in the snow, I thought fondly of the egg nog that my mom was supposed to be buying. That was one drink they did not have at college. But alas, egg nog is really not THAT cold. Sure, it's about the same temperature as every other beverage in the fridge, but I want me a FROZEN drink. So then my dear friend Zack came over, and we pondered this predicament, and finally came up with....ready?... New Englander's Egg Nog!
It's a very simple recipe, and a billion people may have done it before, but we would like our moment. So here is the lovely little recipe

New Englander's Egg Nog (2 Servings)
Put roughly 6 scoops vanilla ice cream into a blender
Cover ice cream with egg nog to 3/4 point (Eye ball it. This is your smoothie. You OWN this smoothie!!!)
Toss in some pumpkin pie spice for good measure. Just a bit. Let's not get crazy.
Blend until you're satisfied
Pour into glasses and garnish with ground nutmeg if desired.

We proudly took pics of our drink for your viewing pleasure

I love the look - how did you manage to break up the jolly ranchers? Those things are rather thick!

I stuck them on some waxed paper and put them in the oven, but they stuck to the waxed paper, so then I tried parchment, which worked nicely. Then once they melted, I let them re-harden, and broke them up. It was sticky, but fun. =)

When I first read about this challenge, I thought of making a mosaic from jolly ranchers. I had been to TJ Maxx earlier in the day, and saw some cute sea-inspired mosaics, and I thought it was super cool. I had never tried them before, but figured it would be worth a shot. So enough chit-chat, here is the outcome.

On the kitchen table!

On the dinning room table!

Here it is unfinished. I drew the image I wanted onto a piece of cardboard, then I would cover small areas at a time with white frosting, break up the jolly ranchers, and stick 'em on.

Oh, PS, the sprinkles coming from the bottom part is NOT dragonfly poop. It's happy draonfly magic sparkles.  Grin

Would it be alright if I joined? I have some yarn that I think would be awesome for this, though might be too thick. But I guess I'll just have to find out. Smiley

At first glance, I thought the recipie was going to be this one


Though both are similar, I thought I'd share this one, which looks almost even more heart stopping-er. O_o

Awww. I love those. Very sweet. I personally like them best with eyes. But without is just as cute. I don't think there is any way to ruin an elephant.

I don't know if this is too awkward to say, but when I saw the pants I was like "Wow! They DO!" So I mean nice pants, nice butt. In a totally non awkward way. =)

Oh my gosh, I love that. It's so cute. And I agree, the "boyish" pattern with the girly dress makes for a cool impression.
