I can’t believe my last post was in May. I haven’t been a very good blogger lately. I always want to post, but, the truth is that when I started this blog I had a very empty plate, and these days my plate is pretty full. I hate the “I don’t have time” excuse when other people use it, but I don’t really have a lot of ‘extra’ time these days, or at least, I don’t want to spend what limited extra time I have cooking or blogging. I still do cook of course, but what I mean is that I don’t really cook that many things worth blogging about. I make a lot of the same meals, or just cook things from cook books and while that’s fine once in a while, I originally intended this blog to be one of creative original recipes, not a blog of other peoples recipes. So, even when I have the time I haven’t really got the creativity or the drive to do it, for that I feel bad because I know a lot of people enjoy the blog, but until I find a way to balance blogging with everything else in my life sporadic posting will be the norm.
Having said that, I did decide at the last minute to participate in Vegan Mofo. It’s really one of my favorite events and I have so much fun doing it. I was really bummed last year about not being able to participate but we were in Ecuador and Peru for most of September and I just wasn’t able to blog. This year we will be going away at the end of September again - Road Trip of the Pacific Northwest - but from September 1st to the 20th I’ll be posting. I normally do two posts per day during Vegan Mofo, but this year due to my own limitations I will only be posting once per day for a total of 20 posts. As for a theme, I haven’t fully decided on one yet. But I’m kicking around two ideas in my head.
Either I’ll do my usual ‘cooking the books’ theme in which I cook recipes from cook books I don’t often use, but with an emphasis on Fall or Harvest Flavors - since fall is nearing.
Or I’ll veganize recipes that originate in countries to which I have traveled.
So stay tuned for all the Mofo Madness beginning September 1st
