As I sit here enjoying the snow (far more than I should) and seriously contemplating a move to lands that get covered in snow and have more desirable summer months, my thoughts inevitably drift off to sitting in front of a window while I watch the snow come down and drinking a Tom & Jerry. It amazes me how few people (especially around here) know this fantastic drink, and I am almost starting to view it as a public service to introduce people to it.
Fortunately I tend to hang out with AARP members, so I don't have to worry about the legalities of it.
Two years ago, right after my son was born, we were pretty much holed up in the house through the winter months. As such, I got very well skilled at making Tom & Jerry batter. I felt it prudent to blog about this, and was just googling to see if I can find the old recipe I used when lo and behold, my long-forgotten post that I wrote is on the first page when you search for "tom and jerry batter".
Now I have my recipe, got a good chuckle out of the blog entry (Mark Foley references always make me laugh) and have more reason to trudge my way down to the store to pick up some eggs so I can make my batter and feed the family breakfast tomorrow.
(Now, more embarrassing was that title "A drink for the dreary season" inspired me to click on it, thinking "This recipe will be awesome!" without realizing I was going to my own Vox posting)
