Take brewed tea leaves and add them to the cooking water the next time you make rice. It's especially good with jasmine rice. It adds a wonderful texture and flavor (without caffeine). I keep a small ziploc bag in the freezer to hold loose tea leaves esp. for this purpose.

How Else Can I Use Loose Leaf Green Tea?

I got this recipe from an old "Cheap Thrills" comic strip. It's great on its own or alongside grilled meats.

Grilled Pineapple Salad -- 4 servings

2 peeled kiwis; 1/3 c. vegetable oil; 2 T. balsamic vinegar; 1 t. Dijon mustard; 2 t. honey; 1 T. lime zest; 2 T. diced lime pulp

1 whole pineapple; washed lettuce leaves; cottage cheese (optional); kiwi slices for garnish

In food processor, puree first five ingredients for dressing. Add in lime zest and pulp, then set aside. // Peel, core, and cut the pineapple into 8 long spears. Brush the bbq grill with oil and turn to high. Bbq spears on one side for 3-5 minutes. // When done, arrange spears on lettuce-lined plates (or platter). Spoon dressing over pineapple, garnish with kiwi slices. Serve with scoops of cottage cheese, if desired.

When I was younger, my parents made a two-dimensional "tree" by taping a green, construction paper chain to the wall in the shape of a large triangle. The ornaments were the colorful holiday cards received from friends and family (also taped up), and we'd pile our gifts against the wall under the tree. It was fun to see it fill up as Christmas came near.
