    I think you should get that looked at. Preferably somewhere other than the bathhouse. ;)

    Try Land 'o Lakes Egg Nog. I get a two-pack at Costco. Great flavor, nice and thick great!

    As for French Toast, I like a nice thick cut of Challah bread

    Same. I still drink quite a lot of it.

    The Charmin corporation loves my business.

    Hmmm...... I'll have to try that. What else do you use in french toast batter??? I've never learned how to make french toast before. Which is wierd because it's my favorite breakfast food. My mother used to make excellent french toast. From scratch.

    Couple of eggs, some milk, and a little cinnamon. Just replace some (but not all) of the milk w/ the Nog.

    What is your favorite kind of bread for making french toast? There is one mentioned in a post above, but I am not familiar with that bread. It seems in restaurants a thick bread, like texas toast bread, is popular for french toast.

    I like Texas Toast or the thick BBQ bread. I have made a loaf of cinnamon raisin in the bread machine then used the leftovers for French toast before. One day I will get around to trying it with King's Hawaiian bread :)

    You can use any bread you like.

    Sorry- You didn't invent it. You may have discovered it on your own, but my family's been doing that for years...

    Yeah, sure.... ;)

    As for the bread question. I perfer thinner sandwich style bread. Keeps the powdered sugar/bread ratio more favorible.

    I prefer a thick premium bread...
    It allows the inside to get custardy with the right egg/milk/cream/nog ratio...

    Pepperidge Farms has a fairly thick white sandwich bread... and their potato bread is good...

    The "Challah" mentioned earlier is a classic French Toast bread...
    It's a Jewish Egg bread...
    The braided, golden brown, shiny top, one you may have seen before...

    My wife added some egg nog to the batter, and used 1 inch thick "texas toast" bread. It was VERY good! I did not taste the egg nog flavor in the french toast, but it was the best french toast my wife has ever made. Thanks for the suggestion. ;f

    Seriously-my dad owned a creamery when I was young. He made a 2,000 lb. batch of fresh butter a couple times a week, and mom cooked a lot of stuff with dairy-oriented products. (Maybe that's why my whole family has a penchant for heart attacks...)

    Anyhow-egg nog in the french toast, and of course we had a steady supply of fresh buttermilk, which is a by-product from making butter. Mom used to make pancakes with the fresh buttermilk, and put a little vanilla in the batter. Man, I wish I could have a batch of them again...

    All right I believe you. Now I'm kind of P.O.'d that you haveent shared it earlier. ;)

    I love buttermilk. The wife hates it. But she used to hate blue cheese too and I brought her around on that.....

    You need to work on the pancake recipes. I think of all the important family stuff you can pass on recipes are the best cause they cant get stolen, or go up in a fire, and nobody needs to fight over who gets it.

    By the look of your Avatar, I would never guess that it would give you the runs, I would say it has made you constipated.
