Since Christmas is so fancy, I always end up purchasing a lot of things I'll use for only one recipe, things that don't normally adorn my shopping list. Buttermilk. Fresh dill. Green onions. Horseradish. Eggnog. We somehow ended up with 3 jugs of eggnog over the past week. Each one is open, each one is different. Regular. Low-fat. Alcoholic. If you want some eggnog, I'm your woman.
So, what to do! I hate to waste things. Especially pricey things like fresh herbs. With the amount of eggnog I'm hording, I'm planning on making eggnog french toast on New Years Day. Perhaps eggnog bread pudding one day next week.
Did you know that if you add a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to a cup of milk, you get a buttermilk substitute?
So, this afternoon, I got busy, mixing my sour cream, buttermilk, and mayo. I love recipes like this. Where you just start mixing and pouring until it looks good. No measuring, just mixing and mingling!
