nog to hide

The Christmas holidays seem to start earlier each year. On October 28, I spotted signs at Weigel's announcing the arrival of their famous egg nog. This picture shows that at least one of their employees doesn't know how to spell the name on their paycheck.

The sign in the photo had been on display for three weeks when I finally got around to photographing it. As far as I know, it's still there.

Poor spelling aside, Weigel's egg nog is excellent. A year ago I did a blind taste test between Weigel's and another great local egg nog made by Mayfield. Both were good but I preferred the slightly sweeter taste of Weigel's.

Last year several listeners (and Scottie Mayfield himself) told me that they freeze some egg nog to enjoy over the summer. Scottie saves his for the Fourth of July. Because my wife and I are currently on a weight-loss program, I may freeze some egg nog to have when I meet my goal. I guess I can use it to wash down the dark chocolate M&M's.

I love egg nog and will consider the freeze-for-the-summer tip.

Growing up in Maryland, my favorite egg nog was from the High's convenience store chain. Haven't found one that beats it yet.
