Seriously, no posts since 2006? did you people all just unanimously stop eating?

Anyway, screw you guys from 4 years ago, today I had a press of yerba maté for breakfast, about 7 servings of Winn Dixie spicy "trail mix" snack mix for lunch, and a botched attempt at a bloody mary for a cocktail.

Dinner was 3 cups (frozen measure) of steamed broccoli florets, spinach, and mustard greens, tossed with about a teaspoon of pesto per cup of greens. Zomg, way more tasty and satisfying than expected. I never had mustard greens before and I couldn't really pick out much of a distinctive scent or taste. This was radically uncharacteristic of me; normally my idea of a vegetable serving is the sauce over pasta, or pickles and banana peppers on my deli sandwich.

I saved the water from steaming, adding 1 part tomato juice (or, vegetable juice, really, the store brand equivalent of V-8) to 2 parts water to make brown rice. Not thinking, I threw in a few teaspoons of tomato/chicken instant boullion too, just because that's how I've been flavoring rice lately... so any flavor from the steamed-greens water is pretty thoroughly drowned out now. I'll throw in a can of black beans and some pan-broiled scallops for brunch tomorrow, and I still have enough vegetable broth to make another batch of rice. Maybe less tomato juice and definitely no boullion next time.

Is yerba maté good? What does it taste like? I've never heard of it, so I had to look it up. I'm a big tea drinker, maybe I should try it, what kind of stores do you buy it from?

I get it from a local shop. They also have a web store at nakava.com - their main product is kava-kava but I'm sure they'd ship maté too. I like maté much better than regular black tea, it has a nice subtle sage-y, grassy flavor that works well with honey.
