Oh!!! I want egg nog!! Here's a fabulous recipe I found (sadly we'll all have to forgo the rum and whisky):
Ingredients 8 servings 16 servings 24 servings
Fresh Eggs (separated into yolks/whites) 4 8 12
Sugar (divided into 2 equal parts) 1/2 cup

(1/2c, 1/2c) 1 1/2 cups
White Rum (dark works) 1/2 cup 1 cup 1 1/2 cups
Milk (Whole or 2%) 1 1/2 cups 3 cups 4 1/2 cups
Whiskey (Bourbon or Canadian) 1 1/2 cups 3 cups 4 1/2 cups
(divided into 2 equal parts) 1 cup
(1/2c, 1/2c) 2 cups

(strongly recommended) Enough to sprinkle on servings.
Consider whole nutmeg nuts and grinder.
Eggnog Recipe Instructions
You are doing things gently and slowly to preserve the eggnog's fluffiness. A good whisk for the stirring and a high speed mixer for the egg-whites and cream helps this process immensely. Notes on taking this to a party below.
1. Separate eggs into yolks and whites in separate bowls (see below for a how-to). I put the whites into the mixer and the yolks into another bowl.
2. Beat egg-yolks with 1/2 of sugar, set aside.
3. Beat egg-whites until stiff, then mix in other 1/2 of sugar.
4. Pour the yolks into the whites and mix together slowly.
5. Stir in white rum slowly. I've tried dark rum and it works.
6. Stir in milk slowly (see below for dairy intolerance)
7. Stir in whiskey slowly (Bourbon, Canadian, Sour Mash. I use Jim Beam or Jack Daniels)
8. Stir in 1/2 of cream slowly
9. Whip rest (1/2) of cream and fold in carefully. Notes on how to fold below.
10. Serve at room temperature by ladling the eggnog into cups and sprinkle nutmeg on the top. Information on nutmeg grinders below. Try to get some of the foam and some of the liquid (if not fully mixed) in each cup.
French toast: Although certainly almost as good as a drink the next morning, eggnog can be refrigerated overnight and used at breakfast by soaking bread in it and frying till browned for some excellent French toast -- adding butter and syrup at will.
I'm on another board and they are always talking about taking a cal/mag combo during pregnancy.
What are everyone's thoughts on this?? I'm drinking my quart of raw milk daily along with some cheese and yogurt too.
