Calendars and Eggnog

Walking home this evening, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some milk. I got milk, but they also had eggnog, so I picked that up too. I know, it's ethically questionable--eggnog before Halloween?! Aren't there laws against that? None that I'm aware of, and I decided to take advantage of the situation.

Upon returning home, there was a BIG box of calendars waiting for me. Alas, it appears to be only one of at least two boxes, since I ordered many more calendars than were in this particular box.

But that's no reason for me to sit on them and do nothing! So I printed out all the orders, slapped on addresses, and filled out as many of the orders as I could--twenty of them, to be exact. The first 20 folks who ordered and paid for their calendars--your order is ready to drop in the mail tomorrow (Thursday). How do you know if your order is one of the lucky ones? You can see the order status of your order. If it's listed as "shipped," your order will be in the mail in a few more hours. (If your order says "Payment Due," get your payments in! I won't mail your calendar if I haven't received payment!)

Seeing as one box of calendars have arrived, a sister box or two should show up soon and I'll fill the rest of the orders (the paid ones, at least!) then.

Yikes! Looks like I have a Pending order and a Paid Order. If you planned on my paying for the 1 pending calendar, let me know. When I placed my order I realized it had only registered 1 calendar, so I went back and changed the order to the larger quantity, and paid for it. I'll pay for the pending order if you'll end up with too many calendars.

What I love to do with eggnog from the store: use it in recipes instead of milk (sometimes a little milk is needed to help "thin" it).

I make eggnog waffles. Eggnog scones with mini-chocolate chips and topped with sugar in the raw are my favorite.

I made brownies last year and frosted them with buttercream frosting that was, you guessed it, eggnog buttercream frosting.

Since I have to wait for my calendar, I might need to start my eggnog baking!
