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 meetup date + venue

Well, it looks like there are about 60 people who are interested in the NW Blogger Meetup that Melinda from One Green Generation and I are trying to arrange.

Based on the poll, we decided to go with September 7th, simply to avoid having to compete with Labor Day weekend and the whole Bumbershoot thang.

We are looking into various venues, but the one that keeps bubbling to the surface is Meridian Park in Seattle. It's right next door to Seattle Tilth and has an enormous play area, playground, basketball hoops, bathrooms, etc. So, if you want to (or have to) bring your kids, there is plenty of stuff for them to do.

Please let me know if you are planning on attending. You can email me as well with your email contact info as we are compiling a list for further coordinating. This will be a local food, potluck style event, so plan on bringing something to share.

wow. Can't tell you how glad I am that your life is NOT gone to total crap, as I feared- and that you're still DOING. :-)

Wish I could be there; really do. Sounds like a real blast.

Wish I could make it- but a bit too far for me right now. :)

I'm also out of range at the moment. Great idea, though!

Let me be the first to say I will be there with bells on! No really bells- I learned it from my cat.

we'll see - i need to get a job before i can commit to the gas money. the job market is not super hospitable to 20-somethings in portland with moderate amounts of professional experience. apparently there are more of us than there are openings.
