When will the Iron Shawna book be available?
Believe it or not, the Iron Shawna book is coming (60 pages so far, and counting)! Get ready to purchase as many copies as you like by Valentine’s Day 2012.
Also in the works is an Iron Shawna podcast. That’s right: A PODCAST, coming to an RSS feed near you.
* A description of the Iron Shawna concept (working with only on-hand ingredients to come up with healthy, creative meals).
* Tips on the Seattle food bank system, for those who need but haven’t made the leap toward accepting this form of support (or even for those curious about the food bank experience).
* Descriptions of ingredients with associated recipes, nutritional information and preparation/storage conversations.
* Tips on how to recycle or clean difficult containers.
* Introduction to foraging and how to approach it.
Check out the visual sneak peek of the book below:

If you would like to support this noble project sooner than February, you can help finance Iron Shawna through several methods:
* Pay Other People Money (POP): www.popmoney.com
Your bank may already encourage this service, like Boeing Employee Credit Union does. In this case, you can just navigate from your online bank account to request a transfer to this email address (use the symbols for AT and DOT): primjula AT hotmail DOT com. Please note that the transfer time period is three days to avoid fees, and that the email address listed for this option is for banking purposes only: do not expect a response from that address for regular communication.
This is my least favorite of the online options, but I recognize that is a known quantity that people may be most comfortable using. If using this service, you can send your transfer amount to primjula AT hotmail DOT com (use the symbols for AT and DOT). Please note that the transfer time period is three days to avoid fees, and that the email address listed for this option is for banking purposes only: do not expect a response from that address for regular communication.
*Snail mail. If you are a self-proclaimed Luddite, find yourself scratching your head at the interwebs or have trouble wrapping your brain around bank transfer protocols, then shoot me an email at Shawna.L.Holman AT gmail DOT com(yes, I get the irony: Luddites do use email, though; use the symbols for AT and DOT). I’ll give you an address for your own personal purpose of sending an old-fashioned paper check.
*Provide grant information. Lastly, Iron Shawna is hunting around for grants and other fundraising sources. If you know of any, will you send the application information my way: Shawna.L.Holman AT gmail DOT com (use the symbols for AT and DOT)? There might be a free Iron Shawna book (or a custom-made Iron Shawna meal, depending on your geographical location) in it for you.
