    You wouldn't happen to know any families by the name of Noon. Durkin. McAndrew or Zylinski would you?

    I knew of some McAndrews but that is a pretty common name up there. Will be spending Christmas in PA this year. My brother now lives in Nazareth..yup that is right I am going to Nazareth for Christmas, but will get to Bethlehem too.

    I will of course visit my cousins, nephews, nieces, aunties and uncles in Scranton some time during the holiday.

    Of course get some Gertrude Hawks candy!

    Mairead, the flan sounds lovely. Would you care to share the recipe?

    Made Herself the first batch of cognac spiked eggnog this week. :D So it's started, the approach to the "holidays."

    'Catz, the candle lighting ceremony is beautiful. Thank you for sharing that with us.

    'Ducky, you poor precious babe! A Velvet Dress?! I know you were beautiful though, and your parents have those good memories.

    Eggnog is a cream (and milk) based drink with eggs added, and some spices... and some liquor. :D I know most of the UK folks shudder at the thought, but it's really lovely and velvety and smooth... then you add the liquor. :D :D

    Advocaat in bottles is more or less the same thing, not freshly made but the same thing though. We use it to make a drink called snowballs. You put British fizzy lemonade in a glass about halfway with a dash of lime cordial then top up with Advocaat, give it a stir and it will go frothy, delicious! This won't work with American still lemonade.
