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.

NW blogger meetup

Melinda (from One Green Generation née Elements in Time) and I have been talking about putting together some sort of get-together to, well, get together all the bloggers and interested readers from the Seattle area and beyond.

We are still at the pre-planning stages and wanted to get an idea of what, if any, interest there would be in getting all us peeps together for a meet n' greet.

So, both of us are posting today to get a head count and some ideas of the whats and wheres. Should this just be a social event or should there be an agenda? Indoors, outdoors, local food, suggestions, aversions?

We were thinking of doing this August 24th, but are flexible on that date.

So, what think ye?



If there are enough people interested I'll be hosting another poll to determine what kind of venue to have it.

Is there any way a blogger from Nigeria could get involved? http://www.onlinewebwatch.blogspot.com

Wow,how cool it would be to all meet. I am too far away though :( I hope there will be lots of pictures taken and video shot so the rest of us can get some vicarious enjoyment....

Any chance for BEFORE the 24th? Husband will just be returning from 5 weeks away and I know I won't be able to drag myself 6 or so hours away.

does virtual help come in handy? i would love to help in person, but geographical distance is a bitch.

I would so very much to meet, but I live in Massachusetts. Sorry Crunchy. Debbie C

Jenn said...

I'll bring something decadent and local. Perhaps an carmel peach cornmel cake or blueberry claflouti.

Laura said...

Yes, please. Awesome idea!
It would likely be me and my man, so count my "Tell me the time..." vote as two.

Michelle said...

Count me in! August 24th is perfect for me. I'm car-less so, my suggestion is to pick a location that's easy to get to by public transportation and/or provide some way for people interested in carpooling to get in contact.

I would be glad to attend, and glad to help out.I can attend as long as it is late morning to afternoon - I am scheduled to work that day! Let me know Cruncharina!

Do I get a cool T-shirt with the number 0069 on it?

Zen Ventures said...

Wow! Wish I can go meet real environmentalist in person and not just virtually, but like iruffcookiedough said, distance is a wench! (sorry,I'm from the south lol!)

kelley said...

hey, i'll live in portland by then. now, if we can get our new computer up and running, i can actually call myself a blogger...

novemberjuliet said...

we should do the Austin Cantina for some yummy margaritas and banana pudding delights!

Crunchy Chicken said...

Mmmmm. Unfortunately the Austin Cantina is a bit too small...

novemberjuliet said...

how many locals are there?!

sigh, now i have to find another excuse to go get a pulled pork burrito.

I live pretty close to you, just a couple hours north across the border. I would be VERY interested in such a meetup. Please not the weekend of Aug 24, however, because there is a wicked cool music festival on the sunshine coast that weekend and we'll be there.

I've been looking for an excuse to take a day trip by myself, and this would be just the thing!

Marcie said...

Meet Crunchy in person! GASP! And meet other bloggers in person!? That is like pulling aside the curtain.
Which I'm all for! You know I'm just down the road in the big ol' city of Puyallup so I'm in!! Just send me the details and I'll come one in.
Maybe I could take the Sounder up...hmmmmm

Carlo said...

Good Job! :)

Monice said...

I agree with Michelle - pick somewhere easily accessible by public transportation - maybe the Olympic Sculpture Park or even a local beach. If there is to be food, I like the bring something local idea (and your own plate/fork!).

Miss Kris said...

A meetup would be fun, but we wouldn't be able to make it if it is on the 24th. We're in Utah visiting family until the 27th.

Nina said...

I would very much consider it! I'm a homeschool, simple living, children's book blogger but I love reading the "green" blogs. I live in the Seattle area. :)
