Hello, friends! Well, it has been quite a while since I’ve updated Ethivore. I don’t have much to say by way of excusing myself, except that sometimes life gets in the way of our best intentions. When I started this blog, I was just out of grad school, trying to find work in a bad economy and looking for something to keep me sane while enduring that disheartening process. Just after my last post I started a full-time temporary job, and in the spring I was lucky enough to begin a permanent position in publishing. This brought my husband and me back to the Midwest, closer to family and friends, which we are enjoying very much. Now that we’re settled in, I think it’s time to get back to Ethivore! I have yet to explore the local landscape of ethical food or connect with people in St. Louis who are working toward a sustainable food future. I hope to investigate these topics, as well as more global food issues and news items, as I return to this blog. And, of course, I will continue to bring you some of my favorite seasonal recipes! Feel free to leave me suggestions about local events or places that I should check out. It’s good to be back!
