Last night I noticed that Albertson's has beefed up their supply of eggnog.  Of course, you can get this drink year round, but now they have the different flavors out as if it were already December.

Eggnog is probably my richest, most fattening, glutenous holiday treat.  There typically is no middle ground with eggnog.  You're either in or out.  Needless to say, I'm in.  I'm going to try something different this year and actually make my own eggnog at home.  I'm doing this for a couple of reasons: One, if you put a lot of labor into something, you're more likely to savor it and share it with others as opposed to just grabbing a 1/2 gallon carton and going to town.  Secondly, watching myself mix together all of the cream, eggs and sugar will hopefully be a reminder of just how horribly bad this stuff can be if consumed too freely.

So what about you?  Tell us about your favorite, overly decadent holiday food.  How long will you wait before you indulge?
