my guilty pleasure

it's that time of year again. when things get colder and the snow starts flying. it's the run-up to christmas and all the craziness that entails. the shopping for presents, the decorating, the parties, and of course my most favorite part the food!

now in the coming days i will talk about most of my fav nibbles from this season, and maybe go over a few that i enjoyed over the intense thanksgiving i endured. and i do plan on giving at least a brief account of said thanksgiving very soon. i would have given you all a lovely play-by-play to enjoy, but i was without internet for most of the trip. such was part of the wackiness of it all.

anyway, today, for me, was truly the start of the holiday season, because today i had one of my favorite things. and yes, it's kind of gross to some, and it's really bad for me, but i can't help it, i love it so and always will. i am, of course, talking about an eggnog milkshake from mcdonalds.

i don't know what it is, drinking milkshakes when it's freezing out is kind of nuts, but i really do love eggnog. and ice cream. blend it all together and i'm in heaven. though i suppose mcdonalds doesn't technically use ice cream. i think it's some secret concoction that goes into their magical machine mostly liquid and just partially freezes. kind of like an icee, or a slurpee depending on where you get your partially frozen beverage treat.

still, i always know christmas is approaching when mcdonalds brings back their eggnog shakes. and as soon as i see they have them, i have to get one, as yucky as it might be to others. it's part of my person holiday tradition. like "wham = xmas", but that's a story for another time.
