Spring "Earth Day" Green Giveaway!


I love My Blog Spark. I get great things to try, coupons, cool, fun things to add to my kitchen - and they give me stuff to give to you, my readers, as well.
April holds the day known as "Earth Day". I am by no means a totally green girl - but I have started some things. My new roomie is about recycling, so I will do what I can. I try to remember those cloth grocery bags when I go to WF or other places to shop. I care more about what I do and put in/on my body than about thing things I use for exterior things.
But, Green Giant (ho ho ho greeeeeeeen giant) and My Blog Spark are offering you a prize package to grow your own herbs, add to your utensil collection, and get some free veggies. I love wooden (or bamboo) utensils so these three were a great addition in my new kitchen. And I have a porch now so I can't wait to grow my own little herb garden. You can get the same thing.
To enter: you can do one of two things:

1. Tell me what your easy way is to protect/sustain the earth?
2. Tell me what is your fave recipe using green giant frozen veggies?

Thanks! Happy playing. You have till Wednesday, April 7th to enter!

1) I also use the cloth bags for my groceries, I use a water purifier on my faucet instead of buying bottled water...I do need to recycle more. :(
2) My favorite recipe to use with Green Giant frozen veggies is Chicken Pot Pie or Broccoli Cheese Casserole. (The packages that you just throw in the microwave and they steam themselves are wonderful!)

1. I use a Pur water pitcher, I recycle everything that I can, I use eco-friendly cleaning products and cloth shopping bags.

2. My favorite way to use Green Giant frozen vegetables is to add them to soups and stews.

1 - I think carrying your own bags into the store is a hassle. But I found bags at Bath & Body works that roll up to a size smaller than a bar of soap and they snap closed. I can keep 4 of them in my purse and hardly notice that they are there!
2- My favorite way to use Green Giant frozen veggies is to serve them as a side dish! I know this isn't creative, but I put so much work into making the main entree that sometimes I forget to make veggies for side dishes. I love the steam bags that you just put in the microwave. And I always have frozen veggies in the house... I can't say the same for fresh veggies!

1) I use cloth grocery bags, recycle everything I can and try to use less water (I don't shower every day).

2) I pretty much just eat vegetables as they are! I like the ones you can steam right in the bag :)

1) We have mandatory recycling in my neighborhood and I do my best to participate.

2) I am trying a new recipe this week which calls for some frozen peas. I have a feeling it is going to become a favorite:
