My apologies for the downtime.  I couldn’t make the hosting bill for the second time this year, something that annoys me like crazy.  Thanks to those of you who reached out to me on Twitter and FB to let me know.  I was well aware, but alas: I was powerless to do anything about it until yesterday.  I pay one bill for all my web services, so there was no good way to accept the generosity some of you offered for this one website, even if I could bring myself to do such a thing, which I don’t think I could.  This is a project I love, and I’ll find a way to keep it going; I promise.  The path is rocky, but the trend is upward, and I’m feeling positive!  If you’re still with me, let’s celebrate being reunited:

  1. What’s your favorite way to consume peaches?
  2. To what dish does basil make its best contribution?
  3. What’s something you’re feeling peachy-keen about?
  4. What’s a cooking herb you dislike?
  5. What’s something in your residence that’s peach-colored or nearly peach-colored?

Thanks for participating, and have an exciting weekend!

Friday 5 for October 7: Bacon

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5!  Please copy these questions to your webspace.  Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we’ll all know where to check out your responses.

When I compose these questions every week, I almost always do a Google site search in order to prevent repeating questions (which still happens once in a while), and I was horrified to discover that the word “bacon” has never appeared anywhere in the questions or comments.  “Cheese” is more than fairly represented, much to my relief, but something must be done about this bacon thing, with apologies to our regular vegetarian participant.  Please feel free to insert “tofu” in the place of “bacon,” since tofu often substitutes for meat, and since tofu is awesome anyway.  Or, you know.  Some other reasonable substitute.

  1. When did you most recently have bacon, and what did you have with it?
  2. How do you like your bacon?
  3. Where do you rate bacon among the standard breakfast meats?
  4. What’s something unusual you’ve had with bacon as an ingredient?  How was it?
  5. What’s a better aroma to wake up to than bacon?
