The above photo is the entirety of the eggnog I made. It's only 2 servings per person. In days long gone, we'd consume about twice that. Now I have about a half gallon left! It looks like there's going to be some eggnog cake in my future.
This year I made: Mom's Dijon Mac n Cheese with Spinach, Jim's Kitchen Sink Chili (it always gets eaten so quickly, I don't have time to photograph it), BYOV's roasted brussels sprouts, Simply Recipe's Roasted Cauliflower with lemon and parmesan, Traveler's Lunchbox Creamy Tangy pumpkin pie with wikstenmade's combination crust, and of course, BYOV's eggnog. Everything came out quite well, and so punctual that it beat pretty much all the guests. Many of these items will be getting their own posts in the not too distant future, so recipes/reviews are forthcoming.
Guests also brought some double chocolate peppermint cookies, as well as latkes with applesauce and sour cream. You probably could've rolled me down the hallway by the end of it all!
