He's an angry elf.

Ubermilf mentioned she's been a bit overwhelmed lately so in honor of her I'm posting Grandma Barb's Homemade Hot-Buttered Rum Mix recipe. We start making this around mid-November and usually have a batch in our freezer to spread holiday cheer.

Hopefully she can find some time to make up some of this and enjoy it.

Hot Buttered Rum Mix

1 cup or 2 cubes of butter
1/2 to 1 box brown sugar

Cream together

Add: 1/2 pint of French vanilla ice cream and mix. Keep frozen.

Hot Buttered Rum

1 heaping Tablespoon of batter, 1or so ounces of Rum, hot water, stir not shake. Dash of Nutmeg on top if you like.

It's not the lowest calorie concoction around, on the other hand after a couple of these you may find yourself running naked around the neighborhood wearing not but a Santa hat screaming you "Santa's got a candy cane," building snowmen in the neighbor's yards even though it's not snowing only to be brought down by a gaggle of elves that look suspiciously like state troopers and pummeled into unconsciousness. All of that burns a lot of calories.

If you're like me you might just prefer sitting down with a buttered rum and enjoying a David Letterman Top Ten list. In this case here are the top ten Christmas movies playing in Times Square--

10. The Stocking Stuffer
9. Prancer and Dancer Meet Lancer
8. Live on Stage! Bob Cratchitt and Mrs. Cratchitt Doing It!
7. The Night the Grinch Stole a Guy's Wallet on the `D' Train
6. Up Santa's Chimney
5. Miracle on 69th Street
4. Frosty the Butt Man
3. Rotating Pies
2. The Nutcrackers

And the number one Christmas movie playing in Times Square...

1.That Ain't Egg Nog!

Wowsers.... can that stuff be delivered? Or should I just use the rum and forget the batter?

I thought about exercising, but your suggestion is much better.

Why can't I shake the feeling that when übermilf returns, it'll be with deadly weapons? Oh well, I've got my windows duct taped and a healthy supply of canned goods. Do your worst!

For a minor shipping and handling fee. :)

Might as well kiss your ass goodbye for all the good it will do you.

Something tells me that if Ubermilf wants your head on a pike your head goes on a pike. The how and when are incidental.

mmmm! Me likes! I have a recipe somewhere that's an elaboration of the same general idea- very generous with various spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and a bunch of others). I make it from time to time when I go visiting, but I don't really want it hanging around my apartment. Haven't made it since Thanksgiving a year ago, but man it sounds gooooood in this stinky weather.
