Bloody Mary Mix
Today is a happy day, because Thursday is my Friday (we get Good Friday off, I sure hope you do as well) and I get to fly home to Denver tonight. Brian’s coming too. So basically, the weekend is already here and I couldn’t be happier about it.

To really kick things off, I thought I’d share Part 2 of 3 from my homemade Salmon Eggs Benedict brunch. Nothing says weekend like brunch. Am I right? And nothing spices things up quite like bloody marys, emphasis on spicy. You’ve been warned.

Thai Iced Tea
I don’t drink coffee (broken record, I know), but I love me some half and half. When I was little, I’d take shots of the stuff at any and all restaurants, diners, wherever. I used to like coffee then too (early bloomer). Nowadays, I have to get my half-and-half kick in other ways, and as you can imagine, my options are pretty limited. I mean, it’s not like I can just go chugging it right out of the carton, right?

That’s a real question. Someone please answer.

Until I get the sign-off I’m looking for, this here Thai Iced Tea is an easy and tasty way to get my fix.

This is Thirsty Thursday: Thai edition. Gosh, I’m such a sucker for alliteration.

Pasta e Fagioli
I can be plenty crazy about certain things. Take for instance, my pursuit of a very particular piece of white, hard-case luggage that took me all the way out to Rockville. But when it comes to dining out, high-maintenance I am not. You’re welcome, Brian.

In that spirit, I thought I’d use today’s Thirsty Thursday stage to share a great recipe for copycat slow-cooker Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli (pronounced pasta fajeool, I think). Because sometimes, you just don’t feel like changing out of your sweats to go eat in public. Not that the fine people of Olive Garden would mind, but you know what I mean.

Nutella Hot Chocolate
Hello! Happy Thursday! Thirsty Thursday to be exact.

If you follow this blog, and I hope you do, you’ll know that it’s been quite a while since I last posted a beverage recipe, and for that I’m truly sorry. This little drink series too easily falls to the wayside around here, but this is something that I hope to change. Part of that will mean finding simpler recipes to share, and today’s two-ingredient Nutella Hot Chocolate is the perfect manifestation of that new mantra. Plus, I figure this is my last shot to post a hot beverage until fall. I hope I’m right about that. I want spring to get here already.

Bubble Tea

Hello! Hello! Keeping this Thirsty Thursday introduction as short as I can, because today’s recipe is a little more involved than most, but trust me when I say the effort is well worth it. 

Like Hello Kitty and hats with ears, bubble tea is an obsession that no Asian can deny. It’s a must-order item anytime I go to the Asian supermarket, but since I don’t go nearly as often as I should, I thought I’d try making the drink at home.

I was thrilled with the results and snapped pictures of the entire process. People say taking pictures of one’s food is another big Asian thing. No idea where they get that from.

Green Tea Lemonade

I’m keeping today’s post short and sweet, kinda like this glass of green tea lemonade. I made it the other day on a complete whim. Why? I’m not sure, because this climate doesn’t exactly scream ice-cold beverage, but the heart wants what the heart wants. So, if yours is calling out for an easy, refreshing beverage that requires only a handful of ingredients that you likely already have on hand, then I have just the drink for you.
