Good plan, bad execution

My homemade eggnog came out... chunky. And stinking of sulphur.

Gotta remember to throw that out tomorrow.

Happy holiday of your choice.

What was the original recipe? Where did things go wrong?

6 eggs
2 cups of milk
1/4 cup of sugar

--cook (low heat)

add 2 cups more of milk and 1 tsp of vanilla and cool

Things went horribly awry during "--cook." Like, one minute it was a pleasant, slowly thickening goo, and then suddenly, it was scrambled eggs in sugar-milk.

Something about my definition of "low heat" is at fault here.

It seemed vaguely ok when I put it in the fridge? But when I opened it up after the cooling, it stank like bad eggs.

dwinn and I both chewed a few mouthfuls before giving up.

Mmmm, chunky. I don't know what all the fuss is about--personally, I *love* having to chew my beverages... ;)

*grins*

Happy Christmakuh!

Um, Mer? Why wait for tomorrow when you have chunky nog today?

Well, 'cause I was in bed when I wrote that. And I was in some sort of denial--becuase it doesn't *taste* bad. I was like, "I'll drink it."

But I won't.

I get it. I can't throw food away until there are things growing on it. Maybe you can take Dwinn's suggestion and incorporate it into pancake batter?

Alas, I saw this *after* I dumped it down the sink. And, I must not have heard Dwinn...

But, it was a good idea.
