What’s your Favourite Fridays has taken a couple of long weekend holidays…and it sincerely apologizes.

Back into the regular rhythym now though, and due to our recent gloomy and rainy weather we’ve been enjoying a variety of warm beverages. I am more of a dairy-free hot chocolate/any kind of tea person, while my other half can’t live without his twice-daily americanos. But what about this whole Matcha thing? I see matcha lattes everywhere, but they involve milk, and sadly this is what makes them off limits to me.  I noticed them first when we were in China in August, they love their matcha and their Starbucks over there and since ordering anything in mandarin beyond something we could point at was nearly impossible, ‘green tea’ got me 3 scoops of ground matcha powder with hot water. And, actually, it wasn’t half bad and I have since become hooked on it.

So, what’s your favourite soothing comfort drink?

This Friday, I am under the weather. The change in seasons always seems to give me a little run for my money, but this time I wasn’t able to kick it in the pants. So, I’ve been enjoying soups, crackers, and a whole lot of liquids. If I knew this was coming I would have made my favourite…tomato basil soup, with extra EXTRA garlic. Not to give soup a bad rap..I love soup, even when I’m feeling in tip top shape, soups give me that warm and cozy feeling anytime. I should definitely learn to make more soups when I’m feeling better.

So you know the drill….What’s your favourite comfort food?

Oh…and I hope you’re all much healthier this weekend than I am.

I hope it’s sunny where you are right now, we’re still getting sunshine and it’s fabulous. In celebration of the many BBQ’s that hopefully you had over the summer holidays, and maybe are still continuing to have if, Basil Gazing wants to know:

What’s your favourite BBQ dish?

(Mine is, after careful consideration: BBQ corn on the cob, only complete when paired with a lot of salt and butter. Delish!)

So I realize the weather in a lot of places has been a little unlike what we are used to experiencing in July…ok, I’m going to be blunt: it’s been downright gross, rainy and cold. I wore my raincoat and wool socks today for crying out loud. But, in the spirit of positivity and things improving as we move from today through the weekend, Basil Gazing wants to know:

What’s your favourite chip dip?

(Mine is a heavy garlic & tomato guacamole…made best by my better half, and he knows it. It’s like a mexican vacation on the edge of a tortilla…what could be better?)
