I don't know about you guys, but I absolutely LOVE eggnog. My dad always drinks eggnog around the holidays, so I'm pretty sure my obsession comes from him.
Last weekend was my company's holiday party so we invited a few people over for drinks before. That's right. We invited people over to our place to have drinks before the open bar. Totally normal...right?
Anyway, I had a particularly outrageous week of work, 7am to late in the evening basically every night last week. Saturday was the day of the party and I had a fairly extensive "to do" list, including getting my hair done. My hair dresser was running late and it was pouring out...needless to say I showed up at home TEN minutes before everyone was supposed to arrive with absolutely nothing purchased or set up. Lucky for me, I married Superman and came home to find this:
Charlie came up with an EGGNOG BAR complete with four different types of eggnog. Is my husband just the BEST or what. There was regular, low fat, vanilla spice, as well as soy eggnog. Yes, soy eggnog.
To make the bottles stand up right, he filled the ice bin with Tupperware and then poured the ice on top. Oh yeah, he also put out fresh nutmeg and a micro-plane.
He also had light refreshments for everyone, including an assortment of meat, cheese and crackers. Wow. Just wow. The man is good. Very, very good.
I absolutely LOVED the idea of having an eggnog bar. We had so much fun trying all of the different types. It was the perfect way to start the evening.
Thank you to my very special husband, who bales out his crazy wife when she bites off a little more than she can chew. Stay hungry!
