EASY EGGNOG PIE



My husband loves eggnog. Or “nog” as he usually refers to it as. I am pretty sure it’s why I can get him to do the grocery shopping easily in late fall, because he’s stalking the dairy department for eggnog. Eggnog is take it or leave it for me, it’s more the texture than the flavor that just isn’t my thing. The flavor I like, the bordering on shake like consistency, not so much. While I was making a chocolate pie this weekend, it dawned on me that replacing the milk with eggnog in a vanilla pie would result in a super easy eggnog pie.

A warning, this is rich. Well, I mean, it’s made with eggnog, which is basically like drinking cream, so yeah, rich. You could totally cut back on some of the eggnog and replace it with milk. Oh, also – one thing to pay attention to – the premade graham cracker pie crust my eggnog store searching husband picked up, was a bigger pie crust – “two extra slices” or something like that. While that’s great and all, pie crusts are kind of a standard to some extent so a jumbo one can mess with your recipes. I was a little short on filling for this, and sort of pushed more of it towards the outer edge. Just something to pay attention to if you are buying a ready made crust.

A Nationwide Outpouring Of Support For Tiny Ferguson Library

The Ferguson Public Library is just a block away from the center of demonstrations at the Ferguson Police Department. As we've reported, when violent protests this week led to the burning of more than a dozen businesses and the uncertainty caused schools to close, the library stayed open.

It has become a quiet refuge for adults and children alike in this St. Louis suburb. And the nation has taken notice. The outpouring of support for the library has reached "orders of magnitude" more than any previous amount, says library Director Scott Bonner.

He's the only full-time librarian there — and he started his job in July, just weeks before the town became an internationally known name. Bonner says the donations may allow him to hire another person to help.

For community leaders and business owners, the library has become a place to convene.

Today's Holidays November 28

National French Toast Day We propose a toast to National French Toast Day! While dedicating Nov. 28 to the cinnamony-sweet breakfast treat is a recent tradition, French toast has been around a lot longer than you might think. Turns out fourth-century Romans enjoyed dipping stale slices of bread in milk before frying them up in oil, just as we do today. In other words: Here's another "French" dish that, just like fries, didn't originate in France (where French toast is actually called pain perdu, or "lost bread").

So, next time you have some stale bread lying around, do some delicious recycling with the recipes below. Whether you use sourdough, challah, baguette or even wheat bread, you’ll save that loaf from an early death... and your taste buds (not to mention kids) certainly won’t complain. http://www.today.com/food/8-sweet-recipes-celebrate-national-french-toast-day-1C7304517

National Bavarian Cream Pie Day National Bavarian Cream Pie Day puts the spotlight on one of those rare no-bake desserts that's surprisingly gourmet in presentation and taste. A sweet, cooked custard is poured into a pie shell, and chilled into a durable mold. Then it's topped usually with chocolate sauce, chocolate shavings, and lots of whipped cream. Then it's eaten--every bit of it, typically! http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/articles/view/351/1/National-Bavarian-Cream-Pie-Day.html

National Espresso Day (looks like we are a couple of days late on this one according the the website, but what the hey?)

Espresso – that thick, bold Italian-style coffee – got its name thanks to the technology used to make the dark, rich brew, which is “pressed out” and tailor made ‘pronto’ for its consumer.
Espresso, which is also the base ingredient for other popular coffee beverages such as cappuccino, café latte and macchiato, has come a long way since its invention in Italy sometime around the 1900s.
So let’s toast the rise of this complex and concentrated concoction with -- what else? – a shot of espresso as we mark http://www.nationalespressoday.com

World Hello Day November 21, 2014 is the 42nd annual World Hello Day. Anyone can participate in World Hello Day simply by greeting ten people. This demonstrates the importance of personal communication for preserving peace.

World Hello Day was begun in response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel in the Fall of 1973. Since then, World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries.

People around the world use the occasion of World Hello Day as an opportunity to express their concern for world peace. Beginning with a simple greeting on World Hello Day, their activities send a message to leaders, encouraging them to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts.

As a global event World Hello Day joins local participation in a global expression of peace. The World Hello Day web site address is http://www.worldhelloday.org.

World Television Day. n recognition of the increasing impact television has on decision-making by bringing world attention to conflicts and threats to peace and security and its potential role in sharpening the focus on other major issues, including economic and social issues, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 November as World Television Day (through resolution 51/205 of 17 December 1996).

World Television Day is not so much a celebration of the tool, but rather the philosophy which it represents. Television represents a symbol for communication and globalization in the contemporary world. http://www.un.org/en/events/televisionday/
