cookbook ideas and a much needed breaksky

Now that the cookbook is pretty much done I have some ideas for my next ventures:

1) An all vegan cupcake book - perhaps only 25 or so recipes but each one will be like no other cupcake that exists, all with pictures and stories.

2) A brunch cookbook.

3) A kids cookbook that I want to co-author with my sister for my nephew Max.

I think I am having post-pardum book depression.

But first I am going to take a week long break from veganism. No, not a break from the vegan diet, just a break from talking about it, thinking about it, debating about it. It's weird, because I am not necessarily an animal rights activist, the meat and dairy industry disgusts me, testing make up on bunnies disgusts me, etc. But since I started doing the PPK and writing this cookbook I've really had to think about these things more than ever and it's become such a huge part of my life where as before it was just a given and just a small part of who I am. This isn't a gripe, I love being a part of the veg community. I've made so many good friends through all this and it's definitely secured my beliefs, but I feel like I'm neglecting other aspects of my life. What those aspects are? I don't know, I've forgotten what I did before all this but I will get back to you in a week or so and let you know.
