    I have never tasted chipotle OR basa. I looked up basa and it says they are catfish from the Mekong River in Vietnam? Interesting.

    I went on a weekend retreat with some girlfriends and we had THE best drink. It's Smirnoff Kissed Caramel vodka mixed with Creme de Cacao and then topped off with a sprinkle of salted caramel hot cocoa mix (we got ours from World Market). I'm not a big drinker, but OMG, it was beyond good.

    That sounds awesome!
    I've been waking up in the wee hours and having trouble getting back to sleep. It's too late for anything that would knock me out and I don't usually have milk (warm milk with honey really does it for me) but I tried hot chocolate 2 nights ago and it knocked me right out. I was afraid there would be caffeine, but part of the reason I'm waking up is chest congestion, and chocolate is proven to ease that.
    Count your blessings!

    It was like candy. Very dangerous!

    You've got me craving hot chocolate! I'm not sure if it's a blessing or a curse, but I can fall asleep even if I've had 2 cups of tea within the hour before I go to bed. It's great if I need to get some sleep, but not so great if I really want to stay up!

    We've finally gotten some cooler temps at night, so I'm drinking more hot tea. I used the $10 birthday gift certificate that World Market sent and bought another cannister of Zhena's coconut chai tea. YUM! I also splurged and bought some of their vanilla chai as well. When it's cold, I love hot tea with a little sugar and cream.

    Re: General Food Talk

    I've been craving tea with milk, too. Really got to pick my moment since the theobromine effect has to be planned for. I'm not wild about using a restroom other than my own. I won't even drink iced tea after 1-2-pm, if I can help/resist it.

    Re: General Food Talk

    Looks like there's a trip to Target in my future. Trying the chocolate-dipped Lays potato chips is a must! I doesn't sound that good, but I need firsthand, anecdotal experience. I love chocolate and yogurt covered pretzels, so how bad can it be?

    I usually prefer my Lays pure and basic!!
