    Hey firegirl,
    Instead of the goggles, open a few windows a tiny bit and set up a fan behind or off to one side of you. I used to work as a cook and I spent 2 hours a day, 3 times a week chopping onions and that did the trick.

    MMMM
    Add me to the French Onion soup lovers!

    As for Christmas at Kylie's:

    On Christmas Eve, we open gifts as a family, read the Christmas story from the Bible, eat, etc. Christmas morning we get up and have a late brunch with my grandparents and aunts/uncles/cousins who live nearby, and exchange gifts with them, sing, tell stories, etc. Then that afternoon we go to my other set of grandparents and aunts/uncles/cousins for more of the same. Pretty hectic! But I love catching up with the family, even if I do have to gain 5 pounds in the process.

    Firegirl, putting it in the freezer for 5 minutes or so before you slice it also helps some.

    Dear firegirl or Kylie,
    How can you tell when eggnog goes bad? According to the expiration date, it's still good. But it smells pretty funky. Is this normal?
    Sincerely,
    A Concerned Camper in Kansas

    Jodarr,, has it been refrigerated the whole time?? eggnog does have its own 'smell' kind of spicy and thick.. if it has been refridgerated it is probably fine.. if it is a day or so before the date it could have gone bad.. I always find its best not to taste tosee if its good.. I err on the side of not puking.. but eggnog does have a sort of smell to it..

    Yeah, it's been in the fridge the whole time. It's supposedly good until this Thursday. Maybe I'll just let Mrs Jodaar go first & see if she survives.
