Last year was an eventful year for Nick and me, which left little time for blogging.
I went from working as a nanny 25 hours a week to working full-time as a librarian out in the suburbs in August of 2012. At that time I also got involved in organizing the three day Combatting Latent Inequality Together Music Festival, which was held in Chicago back in August of 2013. It was a great event and I got to meet lots of cool people, but coordinating it took a lot of time and energy, which stretched me pretty thin for parts of the year.
Nick tore his ACL at work last summer and a couple of months later he broke one of his fingers. He had surgery for the torn ACL in October and is doing well, but both injuries put him out of commission for the rest of the year. He’s been using his down time productively, though, and is in the process of creating his own miniature board game, called Broken Contract, which you can read about over at a gaming blog he does with friends called, 2nd City Warzone, so you won’t be reading much from him here at Second City Vegan for a while, but he’s still around and he’s invaluable when it comes to taste-testing all of my creations.
Things seem to finally be settling down for me, though, and I’ve gotten used to my new schedule, so I’m back and I’m planning on posting here at least once a month, hopefully more. I’ve missed messing around with recipes for the blog and posting about all of my favorite vegan places, products, books, etc. I miss being part of the vegan community on the interwebs. I plan on posting all of the usual stuff, like recipes and reviews, but also just general stuff about life as a vegan.
As always, if you have intel on a new vegan or vegan friendly joint opening up, let me know so I can add them to the Restaurant Guide. I also welcome guest posts if you’re interested – just e-mail me at secondcityvegan[at]gmail[dot]com.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for new recipes, soon!
