T Stands For Expensive Eggnog

 

I'm once again at my dining room table, and as promised last T time,

I am keeping it short and sweet this week.  My friend Scott picked up this eggnog.  It was a dollar more than the last I got and contained less eggnog.  I've never tried this "limited edition" brand before, so I'm going to shake it well and serve it for T.

Most of you know the rules by now.  Please show your own drink related post.  It can be gifts you received, photos, a place you visited, movies, postcards, mail art, junk mail, catalogs, books, sketches, mixed media, drawings, paintings, tags, scrapbooking, or other art that is digital, hybrid, or traditional, as long as it in some way relates back to a drink, any drink.  Regardless, please share below and Bleubeard and I, along with the rest of the T gang will be by to visit.   Please link only your T post and not your blog in general.  Bleubeard would like to remind you that old photos are acceptable because they may be taken any time, not just on Tuesday and most assuredly not just this year.  
 
 

 

I would also be remiss if I didn't remind you to be digging up your Second on the 2nd post, which will be next Tuesday.  Sadly that means we will have to use Inlinkz for linking our posts.  If your Second on the 2nd post is the same as your T Tuesday post, you will need to link both places.

UPDATE: Since so many of you asked, the eggnog was good, but not that good.  And because my last three T posts took an entire page to create and read, I was trying to make it easier for everyone to visit this week.  Nothing wrong, just giving all my readers, visitors, players, and lurkers a break from my normally long posts.  Now go hunt down your Second on the 2nd, please.

I have never seen you post a post this short! LOL. I wonder if the eggnog is good. I hope to do a post later and link up to tea. Have a great week.

I'm not a fan of eggnog, but I hope you enjoy yours - despite the cost. These are strange times and we should find enjoyment where we can. Thanks for giving us this place to meet and connect. It's one of my weekly joys. Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

Price variations are all over the place -- disruptions in production, shipping, and demand are all causing all kinds of unpredictability. Imports are even more disrupted. The fact that most people are now unwilling or unable to go from store to store to get better prices, or even to usefully compare prices in various stores is probably hurting too. All we can do is hope that we get back to some sort of normal soon!

Elizabeth thanks for trying to find Bernie. Here is the solution:
'if you enlarge the picture, see the red beach towel with a girl sitting on it? Look just below her foot. He is between a guy with blonde hair and dark guy with blue striped shorts.'

Rita said...

Now we all want to know if it was better! LOL! :)

Yum! Eggnog sounds delicious. I haven't tried any yet this year because it is so high in calorie but it would make a yummy splurge.
Happy Tea Day,
Kate

CJ Kennedy said...

What's the verdict? Worth the extra dollar or no difference from the cheaper brands?

creativeseconds.com said...

So was it worth the extra money? richer and creamier? I spike mine, so I don't need the added expense :) Happy T day!

DVArtist said...

Hey, Sorry the eggnog was not to your expectation. At least you were able to try something new. Scott seems like a good guy. Have a great day today.

Hi Elizabeth, this week I'm late visiting T Day! *LOL* Thanks for hosting again. I never tried eggnog. It's not really a thing here in Germany. Might have to look for a recipe. Glad the eggnog was at leaast good. :) Have a great day!

Fun to try different eggnogs! I skipped them this year except I did sneak a shot of hubby's coveted Pennsylvania Dutch spiked eggnog - lol. Fun picure. Hugz

Eggnog just seems to be one of those expensive treats. Sorry this didn't meet your expectations.
Happy Tea Day,
Kate
