  • Did you know that eggnog is already available at Smith’s and I couldn’t be happier?  The truth is, eggnog makes me delightfully happy. I love to have it in my coffee from now until after New Year’s Day. I will then freeze it and have some from time to time during the year.
    I’m sure you are wondering why I think you need to know this. Why is this useful information?
