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.

Props to Cupcake Royale

Show me your cupcakesI just wanted to give a shout out to my favorite cupcake place on the west coast, Cupcake Royale, for now offering a food waste bin (for stuff to be composted) in their Ballard store.

Not like we go often or anything.

So, now I can rest easy knowing that our cupcake wrappers and paper napkins are going to a better place.

Sniff. Such a beautiful thing.

I'm sure there are plenty of restaurants in Seattle that take advantage of food waste composting (Wild Mountain Cafe is one), but since CR is a "bus your own table" kind of place it's easy to see that it's being done.

What about your favorite places? Any composting bins available?

There are quite a few places in Madison proper that do this - just last week I was at Lazy Jane's for breakfast and noticed they have two separate bins - it is also a bus your own table place.

Wow, that's great news! I haven't been to Cupcake Royale(West Seattle)...hmmm since I quit my job right around the corner from them... and ummm oh yeah, we had another baby. Soon we'll be ready to venture out into the 'real world' again. HA

I was so excited to see CR had a food waste bin! I think Ballard is on the road to doing some great things. Now if I could just get to a Sustainable Ballard meeting . . .

Food waste bin? Here in dumpy Norfolk, VA? Hah!
