Spring Cleaning Giveaway

It's that time of year again! I love Spring cleaning--mostly because it's when warm weather returns but also because it's a fresh start. Peter Walsh, of Oprah and Friends, has some excellent tools to help you de-clutter your life and we are giving away THREE BOOKS ON CD to three lucky winners!

From the back cover:
"Peter Walsh, the organizational guru from TLC's hit show Clean Sweep, shares his proven system for letting go of your emotional and physical clutter so that you can create a happier, more stress-free home and life."

From the back cover:
"Using his expert techniques honed from years as a clutter expert and organizational consultant, Peter demonstrates how the clutter in your home is directly related to the clutter on your body, and how clutter negatively affects your ability to lead a full and healthy life. This plan shows you how to clean up not just the spaces where you eat, but the routines around them: from planning meals and shopping to dinnertime rituals."

From the back cover:
"Peter examines the six key areas of your life-Family, Relationships, Work, Health, Money, and Spirituality--and shows how these unique parts are so interrelated that if just one is cluttered, that clutter will creep into other areas and throw your life off balance."

Peter Walsh has personally offered one of each book on CD for our readers!

Recipe: Chicken Satay Noodle Salad

**Stay tuned: more great giveaways coming your way.**

My friend, Alicia, posted this recipe on her blog sometime last year and it's been one of our favorites. I thought I'd already shared this gem, but I guess not.  It is husband approved as well--probably on his top ten.

Chicken Satay Noodle Salad
1lb whole wheat spaghetti
1/3 cup peanut butter, softened
2 Tbsp honey
¼ cup tamari (dark soy sauce)
juice of 2 limes (lemons work too)
1 tsp hot pepper sauce
1 clove garlic, grated
3 Tbsp vegetable oil (I use olive oil)
2 cups skinned and sliced rotisserie chicken (optional--I just cube 2 chicken breasts and grill them with our favorite seasonings and olive oil)
1 cup packed fresh spinach, thinly sliced
1/3 cup shredded carrots
4 scallions, thinly sliced on an angle
¼ cup chopped peanuts
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain; rinse under cold water and set aside.

While the pasta is cooking, in a large bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, honey and ¼ cup warm water. Whisk in the tamari, lime juice, hot pepper sauce and garlic. Pour in the oil in a steady stream, whisking to combine. Add the reserved noodles and toss to coat.
Place the noodles in 4 shallow bowls and top with the chicken, spinach, carrots, scallions, peanuts, and cilantro.
