Over the Thanksgiving holiday my parents came down from Minnesota. Growing up in Iowa we always had Anderson Erickson Dairy products. This time of year was especially anticipated as they make their Egg Nog.egg nog

I don’t know if this is really good egg nog or just that it brings back childhood memories of Christmas but it is held up as the best egg nog myself of my brothers have ever had.

Now my parents knowing that we all love this egg nog told me they were going to bring some down. I thought, great and forgot about it until they arrived with 5 quarts. Now you might say that was nice of them except that I am the only one in my house who likes egg nog and the expiration date is December 8th.

It 250 calories in a half cup serving that is an extra 10,000 calories.  I don’t want to do the math on how many hours of cycling I am going to have to do to burn that off. T And I am sure it will be of no benefit to my cholesterol numbers either.

So as I sit here with my third glass of the day, I say thanks Mom and Dad for the egg nog.

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much in the last six months. Mainly because I have been working and trying to keep up with my kids activities.

One thing I have noticed is how much I miss writing this blog. The good news is that I get to write and blog for work. The bad side is that it is n’t the same as writing what you want to write about.

There is something about getting your feelingsand thoughts out that just is a great release for me. Maybe knowing that others are amused or appreciate what I have to say helps too.

Either way I am going to try and be more regular about posting here. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for reading
