Saturday Stumbles...best of the web this week

It has been a little while since I have posted a Saturday Stumbles post, but I knew there were some great ideas and blog posts that I had come across this week that I thought were worth sharing.

The following are taken from some of my favorite blogs:

***4 Cheap & Easy Ways to Go Green from Life as Mom.  Now honestly when I first read the post title, I almost didn't read it.  I don't know about you, but I am getting a little tired about all the hype with "going green".  Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against being a good steward, and I certainly am not directing this at Jessica from Life as Mom (I love your blog Fish Mama!), but I think I have always done a good job with the resources I have been blessed with...my parents brought me up to not be wasteful, and to do our best to take care of God's creation.
So, I did read the post, and I am glad that I did.  I especially liked the idea of using white vinegar and water to wash produce.

***Growing Fruit in the Garden from Family Balance Sheet.
I enjoyed reading this post because it made me look forward to my raspberries growing again (maybe, if it ever warms up enough here!)  I think it would be fun to grow canteloupe and watermelon, but honestly with this late start to spring, we probably wouldn't have a long enough growing season!!!!  Now, blueberries, I think they would grow here...but am I patient enough to wait about 3 years to get a yield!  Maybe.....

***Happy Pretzel Day from Heavenly Homemakers
I think this one is self-explanatory....look how nummy these homemade pretzels look!!!!  I haven't made homemade pretzels for YEARS!  I think that needs to be a part of school next week for my 9 year old!  :)

***Rosemary Citrus Garlic Crockpot Chicken from A Southern Fairy Tale
Oh my!  This chicken looks fabulous!  ...and I am SO impressed that Rachel just creates a recipe, without even following a book, or anything!  Well, obviously, someone needs to create any recipe that ever makes it in a book or online...and I probably have done somewhat of the same thing out of desperation but...
this recipe looks wonderful and it even has a great name!
I am looking forward to trying it on my own some day.

How about you?  What great ideas and recipes have you been reading this week?
