When I first started blogging several years ago, I issued a “Green Weeks” challenge with a fellow blogger. We had many companies donate their products to the two winners of the challenge.
That challenge was in honor of Earth Day; the green symbolizing the “going green”, and we asked people to document various changes they had made to make their lives more eco-friendly.
That was cool and all, but it was also a lot of work.
The best I’m much busier these days (not that I ever thought that was possible), but I still like the sounds of “green week”. And, what’s that you say? St. Patty’s Day is coming up?
Well, in that case….Enter Green Weeks 2013: New and Improved.
All week I will be giving you green things. There will be green cookies. There will be green crafts. There will be a shockingly green and incredibly delicious stir fry recipe.
Because who doesn’t love a good theme week, am I right or am I right?
I’m going to start off the week with a cop-out post a bunch of links to green things from my old blog that is still up and running, gathering dust in the inner tubes of the interwebs.
I don’t know what happened to this shirt. I miss it. And I have no idea what I’m drinking, but I’m sure it was really good….green whiskey perhaps? (I’m not much of a beer drinker these days, what with the gluten and all.)
Maybe some green white wine is in order?
Either way, cheers!
Zucchini hummus. A perrenial crowd favorite.
If you really want to scare the kids, add in some spinach. I usually do. They won’t even know what hit them.
No post on green things would be complete without some un-naturally dyed green cookies celebrating America’s favorite football team. Obviously.
I made these cookies the year the Packers won the Super Bowl. Coincidence? Doubtful.
Interestingly, two days after the game, I had my on campus interview here. Again I ask, coincidence? Doubful.
Mint chocolate chip was and will forever be my favorite ice cream flavor. I prefer the flat “chip style” of chocolate to the hard nuggets that seems to just hurt my teeth, or chocolate swirls of fudgey deliciousness.
Not that I’d say no to a bowl of any of them, but you know. In case you were wondering.
And going WAY back into the archives, I made this handbag for a friend of mine about 4 years ago.
I made myself one with owl fabric using the same pattern and I still use that bag to this day. I love it and it is getting dingy and torn and I don’t even care. Although, maybe it’s time to make another one?
In the not too distant past, these come from my current blog (i.e. the one you are reading right now).
I love pickled everything and I love brussels sprouts, so naturally, I’ve pickled them. I use the refridgerator quick method for nearly all my pickling endeavors. Some day, I’ll branch out, but…..why?
It ain’t broke.
Any requests for Green Week 2013? Are you planning on celebrating St. Patty’s Day?
