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.

Putting on my knee pads

Today is the day I bust out the knee pads and start groveling for 5 star votes. It's also, thankfully, the last day you can vote for me on Project Green Search. It might look like I'm near the top, but I'm still lagging behind in votes and can be easily bumped.

Now, some of you might be wondering why I am even bothering with such a contest, that it goes against a lot of what I oftentimes discuss on this blog regarding society's beauty ideals. But, that's not the point or the case with Project Green Search. They aren't looking so much for a model, but for someone who is passionate about environmental causes, someone who isn't just pro-environmental because it's trendy and someone who is educated on the issues.

Unfortunately, modern society works through media representation and the best way to send a message is through the media, whether by print, TV or otherwise. You can only reach so much of a broad, general audience online. People going to sites like ours have to be interested to hear the message. Print and TV, on the other hand, is more of a "push" technology, exposing ideas to people that might not otherwise hear them.

Okay, so now that I'm done boring you to tears, I would love if you would vote for me. I promise you that, if I make the top 10, you'll be getting all sorts of fun posts about it :)

Voting is fast, easy and does not require any personal information. To vote, click on this link. Run your cursor over the five gray stars at the bottom of the orange frame surrounding the main picture. When the stars turn from red to gold, the vote has been cast.

If you are a Crunchy Chicken reader, please help me take my work on educating the masses to the next level. Cast your vote. It will only take a few seconds and your vote matters!

And, I'm done nagging you. Thank goodness.

Done! I'd been getting a "site not available" message for the past three days but it finally went through. Your pictures are GORGEOUS. Of course that would not be my top reason for voting but it can't hurt.

This isn't relevant to your post, but I wanted to share the story of how I found your blog. I assigned my AP Environmental Science students a book project: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. It's been good for these suburban kids to find out more about their food. When I was grading yesterday, I looked at the turnitin.com originality reports for one student's report and, lo and behold, there you were. Sorry to say he'd copied from your AVM book discussion post! Bad news for him, but good news for me! I've now subscribed to your blog because I enjoy reading your posts.
