Egg nog and the power of the bird

Columbo gave me the recipe for the greatest egg nog and I give it to the world. There's not much hyperbole in that last statement. This stuff is really good and really adult: there's a cup and a half of booze. Check out the recipe at DC Foodies.
So I shot the photos for the egg nog over Thanksgiving. That was two weeks ago. Clearly I'm a bit behind on my own blog.
Anyway, the long and short of Thanksgiving was the missus and I spent it in Ocean City, Md., at the Falks' condo. Instead of turkey, we grilled steaks along the bay. The food and company were great, but it didn't feel like Thanksgiving until we roasted a turkey breast for sandwiches. The Macy's parade might have been on TV (beating the Lions 24-3), but the holiday didn't feel right until I had a mouthful of that bird.
It just goes to show you, when it comes to the holidays, tradition matters.
