For all my pissin' and moanin' it's been a good Christmas Season so far. We got to hang out with my family... and we got to hang out with the redneck contingent of Julie's family in Oak Ridge. We picked up Joy there and she road up here with us. So have two cute chicks to take care of, at least until Monday.
All our shoppin' is done, so our last few days have been spent sittin' around the fire... playin' Xbox with Joy (Blood Wake Rules!). She's had about 100 White Russians since she got here.
Hey! and speakin' of booze... It's Christmas Eve! I haven't told y'all yet, but I'm startin' a tradition this year. I'm makin' Hot Buttered Rum for the first time!
In put is welcome... esspecially on the best rum to use... For now, here's the plan:
Half Gallon Vanilla Ice Cream (softened)
1 pound brown sugar
1 pound powdered sugar
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of nutmeg
1 pound butter (no substitute)
Mix it all together... store in the freezer until time to serve...
2 table spoons of mixture, 2 ounces of rum, fill mug with boiling water. Maybe top with Whipped Cream and a dash more nutmeg.
Sounds durn good to me!
Hope all y'all have a great time tonight and tomarrow. Hug the youngins', kiss the girls, smoke some tobacco, burn the fire, and remember why we do all this.
God Bless Y'all.
