1. Admit to Mr. G that we really didn't need ALL of the egg nog that insisted we needed
2. Make up a bunch of recipes that use egg nog to make option #1 not happen
Want to take a guess as to what I chose? Yes, all of you are, as they say in Boston, wicked smart, I chose #2...with my own little twist.
Since I started a high protein diet yesterday to shock my system, I am making up the batters for most of these and freezing them. And before a lot of you leave comments on crazy diets, this is NOT one, I talked to my nutritionist about this. I have fitness and endurance goals this year and over the past 6 months I have let too many carbs sneak into my diet so this is a reset week.
I LOVE some egg nog. My drink of choice for the past month has been Starbucks holiday blend that I add light egg nog to when I get home. Well the red cups are now gone and I am left with a jug so here is what you can find in my freezer after tonight!
NOTE: I am including the websites that these recipes were posted on when I clicked through from Pinterest. I try to give credit as I think I use a recipe from Pinterest at least once a week.
