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.

Thursday giveaway

And the blog anniversary fun continues! For those who missed yesterday's post, I'm celebrating the one year anniversary of writing this blog. You can still enter the giveaway for yesterday, where I am giving away the fabulous Soyabella Soy and Nutmilk maker (you have until Friday). To enter, just leave your name in yesterday's post.

RoadrunnerToday, I'm giving away the Road Runner super magical low-flow showerhead by Evolve (retail $38.95). You can read my review here.

Now, I may have complained about its prickly nature, but I've been told by the company that it's possible that my water pressure is too high. Irregardless, my friends, I'm sticking to my cheapo low-flow showerknobule and passing the bounty onto one lucky reader.

Again, to participate in the giveaway, just enter your name in the comments for this post to be entered in a random drawing. The drawing ends Friday 6:00 p.m. PST. I'll announce the winner on Sunday.

Friday's giveaway: Books!

This sounds perfect for my Mom. She LOVES those masochistic shower heads.

Oh, and Congratulations on the One Year Mark! I guess this would be a perfect time to tell you how much I appreciate all the work you do on your blog. I've learned a ton from you and, while I'm not "using cloth" yet, you've made me realize I wouldn't be a weirdo if I did.

Or, at least... I'd be a weirdo in good company. ;-)

Thank you Crunchy!

MoonMaiden said...

I can always use a new shower head ~ and I'm one that never thinks there's enough water pressure. *Congratulations* on your anniversary ~ and *Thanks* for the giveaway!

Lora said...

I have been planning on replacing my current showerhead. This would really fit the bill. Enter me.

Randa said...

I'm a maniacal composter, re-user, recycler, non-clutterer, etc. etc. person...but my guilty pleasure, I have to say, is long hot showers. Must stop this bad habit!

Jackie said...

Congratulations on your anniversary. I just found your blog and like what I've read so far and a new showerhead would be great.

camp mom said...

Congrats on your first year! I've enjoyed following your journey-you've helped us see things in a different way. Go ahead enter me! My hubby likes sadistic showers!

debby said...

Lower my heat -- check
Diva Cup -- check
shorter showers -- can't do it

mel said...

I do my best at shorter showers, but I have to admit that I don't do very well (it's the hair! So much hair!), so I compensate by showering under a trickle. And my husband isn't even willing to consider turning down the pressure.

jennifer said...

Interesting...I think that it is not too costly, and it is efficient.

Jessica said...

I've been reading your blog for a couple of weeks, and I feel really bad that the first time I'm leaving a comment is to be entered in a drawing. I'm really sorry, and I'll try to do better in the future. Mea culpa.

I was thinking about your blog post on the shower head this morning while in the shower, and then I saw the giveaway, and I had to enter :-)

Allie said...

Our shower head is low flow, but super old. I bet this one is even lower flow.

LisaZ said...

I'd love the prickly showerhead!

Chile said...

Um, please do not enter me in this give-away. I'm now working on getting the image of a roadrunner with a shower head stuck up its butt outta my head.

Anonymous said...

Sounds awesome! Kimberly :)

Bill R said...

i could definitely use one of these!

ruralaspirations said...

Me, me, me! I'd love to have my own shower head (as a renter I've never bought one)...

Christy said...

I'm willing to give this shower head a try. I like a hard shower.

Jenna said...

Please enter me! My husband and I are purchasing a new home and anything to keep cost low and save water sounds like a good deal to me!

Crunchy Domestic Goddess said...

i would love this. please count me in. thank you! :)

Brooke said...

Ooohh yeeah!! My hard-working husband really needs to have that dirt blasted off of him with a power shower head. Low-flow too? The best of both worlds! Count me in!!
Brooke

Thanks, Crunchy! You are so generous.

Tom said...

Congratulations on your first anniversary. Cool blog! I just ran across it today and I really like what I've seen so far. Please enter me in the showerhead drawing.

Capturing Today said...

Could use a new shower head in the 2nd bathroom - - -

Meghan said...

i would love this showerhead, i have been eyeing it for a while :)
thanks, meghan

laurel said...

I just spent the whole day yesterday with my eyes crossed, looking at approximately 500 zillion showerheads...I came away empty handed and overwhelmed. So I really hope I win so I don't have to go back and figure it out!! :)

Heather said...

Thanks for all the fun prizes, C-squared!!
I readily admit I love high water pressure. It takes FOREVER to get the shampoo out with the trickle that comes out of my current showerhead. I think yours might actually help me take shorter showers! :)

kitty said...

Oh my goodness! That sounds like lots of fun. Please count me in! Congrats on turning one. I really enjoy your blog, especially with my morning coffee. I love it when education and smart-ass wit team up to raise planetary awareness! You are to blame for me cutting an ugly $5 pair of pants into toilet paper and trading in my tampons for a diva cup. If that doesn't give one warm fuzzies, I don't know would. I wish I was even one tenth that inspirational :)

The Green Panther said...

The soymilk contraption would be wasted on me but I've got to at least try my hand at getting the cool showerhead.

Congrats on your anniversary!

She-Ra said...

I like water pressure and my husband likes to leave the water running for approximately 3 hours every morning to warm up the shower. Sign me up for the drawing!

Thanks.

Jason C said...

I actually just got this showerhead and installed it last night replacing the one you are sticking with.

It is still under debate as to which direction we're going. My water pressure isn't as insane as yours.

The wife needs to try it a couple more times to see how it rinses her hair.

The verdict is still out.

memeli1 said...

this one would make the bf happy!

Frugal Nut said...

Count me in! Love what you're doing!

Lesley said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I have learned so much this last year reading your posts and have made (and am planning a lot more) changes based on what I've seen you all doing. :)

kssnflwr said...

I want to try a new shower head. Please, please let me win. I'm not whining, really I'm not!

Sweetpeas said...

Count me in! Anything to reduce water usage during dh's LOOOOOOONG showers :)

Margaret said...

Yay! Sign me up. Love your blog. Margaret

Dave from Maine said...

Thanks for the giveaways!

knitterwifemom said...

This might be the solution to our low pressure - and to our non-environmentally friendly current shower head!

Thanks for the great blog! I have really enjoyed it!

Kate said...

Once again, how nice of you to do this!

Diane said...

Congrats on your anniversary. Thanks for the giveaway.

Mme. Meow said...

Ooh me! Me! I want a new showerhead that feels like acupuncture!

(But CC... "irregardless"? For shame!)

GreenYogini said...

I'm dying to try one of these, but I haven't been able to decide on a model or brand... Maybe you'll make my decision easier. ;)

MamaFeelgood said...

Any water pressure is better than the trickle I have now.

Katie said...

Perhaps this showerhead would get my teenage daughters out of the shower faster!

Marcie said...

I'm in! Thanks again!!

svanderw said...

anything to save water is a good thing. Looks like a great product

feather nester said...

Just found your blog...and just bought our first house! Looking for all the little and big ways we can go greener. This would be a great start. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I've been thinking about buying one for a while. Good Luck to all!

melpaco said...

Count me in too please, thanks. Mel
