Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

No impact man

Señor No ImpactoSo, I've been reading the blog of No Impact Man, a guy and his family in NYC who is trying to (surprise!) leave no impact. He and his family are tightening the thumbscrews of sustainability and really lowering their footprint for a year. It's being filmed as a documentary a la Supersize Me. At least that's the impression I have.

For example, they are composting everything including their poop. In the city. You have to check out his blog to read the extent of their efforts. He has been getting a lot of press (and a bit of criticism) for what he is doing. But you'll have to decide for yourself.

Anyhoodle, he was kind enough to visit my humble little blog here (after I left a post on his) and he has kindly added me to his blogroll. Can I say "Holy Crap" now?

He'll be on the Colbert Report on Monday, April 9th, if you want to check him out. I'm sure Steve won't let him get a word in edgewise, but I expect nothing less from Le Report.

I was wondering where you found the info about Colin composting his poop... I've been looking all over his blog for it, but can't find a post about it.

I'm really hoping he addresses the issue... it looks like a lot of folks are curious!
