Okay, I think this is the last Christmas treat I’ll be sharing this year.

The kids last day of school is today and, you guys, it’s almost impossibe to find time for a blog post when they’re home. Also, it’s Christmas break! You’re supposed to be building gingerbread houses, watching the same Christmas movies over and over, and going to see the lights!

Eggnog is one of those things that I get excited about every year because I think that I love it. But I really don’t. And you’d think I’d remember that from year to year but it never fails: I rush out to buy a carton and then gag on the first sip. Someone please remind me of this next year so I don’t get my hopes up again.

So since I had a carton of eggnog to use up and eggnog is the Thirsty Thursday theme of the week, I decided to bake with it. Surprisingly, I really liked this bread. Until I put the glaze on it which is pretty much straight eggnog. But the bread itself just has a very subtle eggnog taste that’s perfect for those of us that want to like eggnog but just don’t. My husband and kids loved it with the glaze though so if you’re an eggnog fan, definitely add it.
