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.

Green book week!

Green book week!Since my husband starts his stem cell transplant chemo today (three days of super high dosages), I'll be pretty busy and won't have much time for in-depth posts. So, I'm designating this week as Green book week! Hopefully, a little book fun and merriment will break up the excitement of twelve hour infusions, hair loss, nausea and vomiting...

Anyway, last week we finished off the discussion posts for the book, In Defense of Food, and next Tuesday I'm hoping to put up the final discussion post for Affluenza. As such, today there's a poll about the book club.

Be a bookworm!The rest of the week will be green book giveaways! If you are participating in Green Bean Dream's Bookworm Challenge in May, now's your chance to get the book you're signing up for for free!

Here's the book club giveaway schedule:

Tuesday: Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic, by John de Graaf, David Wann and Thomas Naylor

Wednesday: In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto, by Michael Pollan

Thursday: Simple Prosperity: Finding Real Wealth in a Sustainable Lifestyle, by David Wann

Friday: Green Chic: Saving the Earth in Style, by Christie Matheson

All giveaways will be randomly chosen. You can enter one or all of them by adding your name to the comments for the book you are interested in on the day I announce the giveaway (in other words, don't enter them today). The contest closes for all the giveaways on Friday, May 2nd, 6:00 pm PST. I'll announce the winners on Saturday, May 3rd.

The following poll is multiple choice, so you can pick your top 3 or whatever you want.

All the best to your family! There are lots of healing and encouraging thoughts and vibes coming your way!

Also, I'm fulfilling the promise I made when I won a copy of Simple Prosperity from you in March, and holding a giveaway for it on my blog as well. Today is the last day for entry in that if anyone wants to increase their odds of winning this most excellent book!

All the best to you and your family crunchy.

Theresa, that's a great idea. I just set up a book giveaway for "Simple Prosperity" on my blog. So for those of you who don't win Theresa's, you can sign up to win it on mine. The winner will be announced on Thurday, so those who don't win it can still sign up for Crunchy's.
