The Rain Is Here

and it is so cold!  Berrrrie Berrrrrie Cold!  The drips outside sound so good, I know I will be sleeping soundly tonight!

Tonight we had "Tom and Jerry's" made from scratch following the recipe I remember my Mom whipping together when we had Christmas Company.   Warning:  rich, potent and powerful.

 2 eggs beat until frothy             
 add 3/4 cup sugar and beat on high until the mixture is light yellow and pretty thick, like            thick pancake batter.

Bring 2 cups of milk to a bubbling, frothy almost-boil.  Turn off the burner.

Spoon some of the batter into a mug.  Pour in the hot milk.  Add a jigger of good brandy.  Grate nutmeg on top.

Because I have had tow (2) of these, there are no pictures.

... how big's a jigger *?* I wish it was cold and raining here I'd be joining you, it will have to be in spirit of another kind :)

Hmm, that might have been the problem: I used a shot glass. A "jigger" is a little two-ended measuring thing that is used to measure out the liqure(no, I haven't had one since, I just can't spell and type at the same time). One end is bigger than the other, and lightweights like me are recommended to use the little end.
