Thai-Chai-Chata

It’s times like these when I hate myself.  I was talking with a coworker that asked me “don’t you just hate these people?”  To which I thought, I jokingly say I hate someone but I don’t really hate anyone.  Hate is a strong word and I prefer not to use it.  I will use it, but I prefer not to.  

Brown Rice and Chai Horchata

I don’t recall the first time I tried Horchata.  It doesn’t even sound like anything I would like but I love anything Spanish so of course I tried it.  Horchata is one of those things I always try if I see it somewhere.  Everyone has a different way of making it, so I always want to try their secret recipe. 

Strawberry Shortcake with Cinnamon and Basil Ice Cream

Strawberry shortcake though delicious does not tempt me on a dessert menu.  I had a friend once tell me never to order strawberry shortcake off a menu.  They said it is a way restaurants get rid of fruit, especially fruit that is going bad.  I myself don’t believe this, however,  I personally wouldn’t order a strawberry shortcake at a restaurant.
