spiked egg nog

The other evening mis padres came over for eggnog and  h'orderves.
On the menu...stuffed mushrooms with spinach and feta cheese and pastry puff pigs in a blanket. We may have set the fire alarm off once or twice during the cooking process. The good news is, B and I are down to a system when it comes to potential fires in my apartment.
 This festive set is a truly vintage piece passed down from my great-grandmother. I just recently warmed up to eggnog, as in last weekend, but how could you not with this little antique?

easy blender eggnog (serves 4)
Combine 2 cups of heavy cream, 1/2 cups of sugar, 1/4 tablespoon nutmeg in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a simmer. 
In a blender, blend 4 large eggs on low for 1 minute. Gradually add hot heavy cream mixture. Blend until frothy (about 30 seconds).
Add 1/4 cup of Captain Morgan spiced rum and blend. Serve warm (or refrigerate and serve chilled).
Garnish with nutmeg.

A delicious masterpiece!
I doubled the recipe, okay tripled it. 

Recipe found in Real Simple Magazine
