Well hello again! It has been a long time since I've had the chance to sit down and write a blog post. Many apologies for that! But thank you and welcome to my new subscribers who have signed up for blog updates in my absence.
To say the last 3 months have been busy would be an understatement. Those who know me well know that when I take on one major life change, I tend to take them ALL on at once. So since late August, I found out I'll be having another baby (due April 2017!), moved to a new house, renovated that new house to include a new kitchen, became a board member for a great local non-profit called NW Veg, and started a second (and temporary) Airbnb, with a few trips out of State mixed in there. Phew! I've finally had time to settle down....just in time for the craziness of the holidays to begin!
And then there was the election results, which have come as a huge shock to myself and my family. I (we) have spent the last couple weeks trying to process what has happened and what it means for our future. I don't want to get political here, but I bring up the election because it has influenced a decision I have made in the last week. I've decided to take a step back from recipe creation to use my free time to volunteer with organizations that could use my help in the wake of recent events. As much as I love sharing the goodies that come out of my kitchen with you, its time for me to focus my energy elsewhere for the time being. I will still be posting new recipes from time to time, but it definitely won't be as frequently as it was in the past.
But in happier news, I'm excited to share a photo of my new vegan kitchen, along with this post-Thanksgiving recipe. The Thanksgiving Leftover Tart!! This tart was just incredible, flavorful, and so filling. I couldn't think of a better way to use up your leftover Thanksgiving side dishes! You may purposefully want to save some leftovers just to make this!
I'd also like to wish the American followers a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with happiness, love, and kindness.
