Definitely add Chai tea in there! Its super yummy, especially in the winter, and its more of a "dessert" tea. Green tea is certainly a very healthy tea, but its hard to choose one for people -- many folks don't like green tea, or only like certain kinds.
The Republic of Tea has quite a few different teas, specifically geared towards exactly what you're talking about -- clear skin, wellness, sleep, waking up, weight loss...perhaps see which ingredients in each tea have the effect and try and find something similar?
When I used to live at home with my parents, my dad and I had what we called "the default setting." Whole wheat bread, sweet brown mustard and colby jack cheese = toasted cheese sandwich HEAVEN. Optional caramelized onions for extra bad-breath-and-yum.
Now my dad's in Guatemala, working as a cook at a bar, and he's remaking the menu and putting our toasted cheese sandwich on there, called "The Default"
He also used to keep pitted dates and almonds around for a snack, insert almond into date and pop into mouth, but thats not much of a meal :p
If I actually drink enough for a hangover [it's very, very rare], that means I feel sick and awful, and can't eat hardly ANYTHING...save maybe some bread, or chicken soup, else it'll all come right back up.
The idea of eating greasy foods while or after being drunk is something I just can't fathom.
So THATS why everybody thinks its in October...I was wondering where the hell they got that idea. But wait, it still can't be the 15th -- it can only be the 14th at the latest! And I wonder though, if perhaps they knew more Canadian exchange students than American, and that's why they knew when the Canadian holiday was but not the American one. Hmm.
Ok, crafty cookin' ladies, bare with me here, for I have invented...something...awesome!
Backstory: Long ago, I decided to spike my hair with Knox unflavored gelatin. So I bought a box, used a packet, success! Blah blah blah. There were 3 packets left. I observed the box, noting the jello juice blocks [bleh, not a fan of jello], and the supertastically easy no-bake cheesecake recipe. And it occurred to me - fathers day was coming up! And my dad likes cheese cake, and cream cheese, and all kinds of cheese-oriented things, so, no-bake cheesecake it was.
And it was good.
But while eating this yummy sno-cap-covered treat, it occurred to me [many things seem to occur to me ><] that the cheesecake tasted an awful lot like cream cheese ['cause, well, it was].
And I got to thinkin' - cream cheese tastes good on bagels!
So I plotted and schemed and a year later experimented with it, and I got it. I call them bagelcakes and this is how they're made:
-1 box Knox unflavored gelatin -Listed ingredients for no-bake cheesecake [sans-crust] -2 packages of  plain white bagels [or, y'know, just get a pack of 12 if you're into that sort of thing]
Step 1: VERY CAREFULLY open up each and every bagel. Try and get them even as possible. Scoop out the bagelguts, leaving a nice shell. Step 2: Lightly toast the bagelshells. Don't bake 'em til they're crispy, just...kinda..let 'em firm up a bit, lightly crunchy is what you're going for ultimately. With that yummy toasted aftertaste. Step 3: While you're toasting your bagelshells, blend up all the ingredients for the no-bake cheesecake Step 4: Pour "batter" into toasted bagelshell canals Step 5: Let set in fridge [doesn't take very long at all]
Voila! Bagelcakes! Now, I told people about this, and so far every single person I've told thought it was genius. Then I tried it, and it was genius.
I've only made plain ones thus far, but my then-assistant and I were brainstorming ideas to switch 'em up a bit: -Using strawberry cream cheese instead of plain, for strawberry cheesecake! -Using blueberry bagles -Serving drizzeled with chocolate/caramel, or toped with your very most favoritest cheesecake topping
And what to do with the MASSIVE amount of bagelguts you havfe sittin' around the kitchen? I have no idea. We fed ducks.
