I made a really nice vegan bean loaf, and since my success rate with getting these to stick together has not been high, I figured I should write down the recipe somewhere.

1 medium onion, roughly chopped
6 mushrooms, roughly chopped
~1 cup celery ends, roughly chopped
1 carrot, grated
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 can kidney beans
1 can cannellini beans
~1/2 cup besan flour
~1 tbsp vegan sour cream
~1 tbsp soy sauce

Line the bottom of a loaf tin with grease-proof paper. Whizz the vegetables in a food processor, then add the beans, sour cream and soy sauce and process to combine. With the motor running, add the besan flour one teaspoon at a time until incorporated (add a little more flour if the mixture seems too wet). Allow to sit for a few minutes, then turn into a loaf tin and smooth the top. Bake for about an hour at 180C, then test - if the edges are too soft and crumbly, put it back for a bit longer. Leave to sit for about 20 minutes to firm up, then carefully turn out of the tin.

Ironically, the resident vegan [ profile] edod didn't feel like joining us for dinner. We were kind and left her some, though.

Hi there, I just wanted to introduce myself. I guess I joined awhile ago, but I'm only starting to use DW more. I posted a lot on Craft Grrrl on LJ. I do a lot of machine knitting and papercrafts along with drawing and painting too. I hope to share some projects this weekend with you all when I have more time to round up pictures.

I have been trying and trying to find cardboard easel photo frames small enough for my purposes. It has to fit flat in a Royal Dansk 12oz cookie tin. My booklets just fit—they're 4.25x5.5"; looking at the tin and booklet with a ruler in hand, 4x6" would work, but only just—which means a frame designed to hold a 4x6" photo is going to be too big. Hence my problem, because apparently 4x6" is the smallest photo anyone would want to put in a store-bought cardboard easel frame!

So I am thinking my best bet is to take card stock, cut it so I have a stack of pieces where the outside dimensions are 4x6", and cut a centered 3x5" hole in half of those pieces. I could then glue each such frame itself and my 3x5" art to a hole-less 4x6" piece of card stock.

If I cut carefully enough when making the hole in the frame piece, I can use that piece to make the easel back. I think what I want for that is a right triangle with a rectangle on the longer leg, and I score along the triangle-rectangle border so it will fold without complaint, and I glue the rectangle to the back of the frame so that the triangle can either be out to the back (for display) or flat to the frame (for storage). I guess that means slicing a right triangle with 2" and 5" legs off of the 3x5" rectangle I'm cutting out.

Does that sound like a thing that will work?
