    Allright, that's it!! You all have my permission to call my wife and tell her we need to breed our girls when they get old enough.

    Thanks for the recipe! I won’t have goats milk for at least a month though. :( But cow’s milk will work too! :D

    Well it sounds to me like you messed that batch up. Recipe clearly states to refrigerate over nite. Will be there to dispose of the rest of it while you make you a new batch.

    Underachievers! :hide::heehee:

    The men here woulda only left me a one single swallow! :omg: They are nog FEINDS! And all the better when they remember there is rum atop the fridge. (rofl). We have a local dairy that sells to a few stores round here. They only sell the quart glass jar..... it never lasts two nights here. And their choklit milks... half gallon. Om nom nom nom! Last through dinner. Mind you it is myself, hubby and grown son eatin. I get meself a eight ounce glass and they snarf the rest. MONSTERS!

    I mighta was been bad this week when i went to the lil butcher shop..... mebbe i bought two...... and mebbe the evil house elf hid one...... and mebbe the menz have not found it yet...... but the house elf is tryin figure how to open it and still be able lay it on its side for hidin purposes. The lid is a soft flippy kinda lid that leaks when it is opened if it lays on its side..... see my dilemma here? :waiting:... to open or to not open.....:shrug:

    That first part! Omg! I SO miss my milks and this was the first time we have had fresh goat milk here really. Other than the few times i have bought it before. But man i miss it! I also miss my quiet soothin mornin time with my gracie a LOT! She soothed me to start my days.... after we got over the we ARE milkin you gracie bit at the start lol! My mama was recently diagnosed with lewy bodies dimentia and just the turmoil inside of my noggin some days... i could talk or cry or rub and brush or whatever and my mornins with gracie just gave me a peace that i cannot find in other chores. My garden is done for the winter so no bare feet and hands in the dirt soothin me there for a while either. I have seriously thought about tryin find a doe in milk just for this reason! But we just dont have room for another grown doe right now. So i will be content with my mornin routine of chores and when i am havin a bad brain day i hide away is her stall while she eats and brush her and let her soothe me that way til march when we should have wee kids runnin amok and i can milk here again.

    You can use cow milk, the recipe originally calls for "milk" so I'm assuming cow, I changed it to work for me!

    I sure needed someon to tell me when to stop warming after adding egg yok and sugar. I may have made some egg nog pudding(blush). Will this thicken more in the refrigerator?:shrug:.
    It sure tastes good(doh).

    Put a lil cornstarch or flour in it and it will thicken nicely.

    Adding more of the wet mixture might work but i dunno. Really all the warming does is pasteurize it in easy terms and disolve the sugar. :). It almost sounds as if you kinda cooked the eggs a lil bit so that i why i am not sure if addin more wet would help or not. I bet eggnog puddin would be delish if that is what it end up bein! And ooooo tapioca yum! Or..... is it maybe the consistency of a custard now? Or more thin? If not addin flour and bakin it would make it custard like. Yum too! Sorry i am not more help. :/. I just know that flour or cornstarch will thicken it up to be more of a custard or puddin.
