The last drop of eggnog for the year...

... has been consumed. At least in our home, anyway.

At chez treppenwitz, eggnog season runs from a day or two before Thanksgiving until new years day. That's it... it was a good run this year. Many batches were whipped up and consumed. Some straight up... some with a tot of bourbon or rum... some added to coffee.

Needless to say, there's no hard and fast rule that says you can't drink eggnog year 'round.

Unlike, say, wearing straw hats, seersucker suits or linen after labor day, nobody is going to ridicule you or drum you out of the country club for enjoying this creamy concoction out of season.

Of course, they won't have to. You'll be dead of a heart attack by Ground Hog day.

Seriously, put away the whipping cream and nutmeg shaker until the fall, people. Now comes the post-holiday season work-out pay-back.

This has been a public service announcement from the management.

Can't enjoy my Mint Julep without my seersucker suit and straw hat.

would it have been assur to put eggnog in the ravioli on sat. night since it was jan 1?
(or was it in there already?)- or maybe since it was a nidcha this year, it would have been permissible
