Vegan and gluten free cheesy potato bake!

Ingredients:
1 & ½ cups soy milk
2 tbsp vegan butter
2 tbsp gluten free plain flour
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 cup shredded vegan cheese + ½ cup extra for layering
Salt and pepper
Herbs of choice
4 medium-large white potatoes, thinly sliced

Method:
1. Grease a medium oven proof baking dish and preheat the oven to 180C.
2. In a small sauce pan, combine the soy milk and butter. Place the saucepan on the stove top and whisk these two ingredients together on medium heat.
3. Add the turmeric and flour into the mixture, continue to whisk.
4. Once the mixture starts to boil, mix in the 1 cup of vegan cheese then turn off the heat.
5. Place down one layer of the thinly sliced potatoes in the prepared baking dish. Add some salt and pepper, herbs if you like and a sprinkle of the extra ½ cup cheese. Pour over some of the cheesy mixture from the stove top.
6. Continue this process until there is no more potatoes, cheese and cheesy mixture left!
7. Top with your fave herbs if desired, and bake the dish in the oven for approx one hour and 10 minutes.
8. Remove from the oven and serve! So yum when it’s hot :)

Lancaster for the ship meme of it isn't to late? ^^;

001 | send me a ship and I will tell you:

when I started shipping it if I did:

I think I started shipping Lancaster probably when Volume 4 started. Surprisingly enough, I didn’t really ship Lancaster right off the bat when I started watching RWBY back in August last year. I was mostly an Arkos shipper (still am).

But once I watched Volume 3 and Volume 4 premiered, I considered the idea of Jaune slowly gravitating towards Ruby after Pyrrha’s death. I started watching some AMVs of them on YouTube, reading fanfics, and finding nice fan art. And before I knew it, I became trash for this wonderfully dorky ship. And created this wonderfully dorky blog because I noticed that there weren’t any blogs centered around this particular ship. 

And while I do admit that it’s become more of a general RWBY blog recently, I still try my hardest to find good Lancaster content (which, sadly, has become more few and far between).

my thoughts:

What can I even say???

I WILL LOVE THIS SHIP TO DEATH AND WILL GLADLY GO DOWN WITH IT. THESE TWO DORKS ARE MADE FOR EACH OTHER AAAA.

what makes me happy about them:

Everything, really? Like their social awkwardness, dorkiness, adorableness, EVERYTHING.

what makes me sad about them:

Nothing really makes me sad about them? Except I guess maybe the lack of screentime focusing on their friendship? Because y’know it would be really nice to have more Jaune/Ruby friendship moments

things done in fanfic that annoy me:

Y A N G being angry/suspicious of Jaune being in a relationship with Ruby. I was fine with it at first (though I thought it was a bit OOC of her), but it’s become so overused in Lancaster fanfics that it annoys me now. I MEAN, even if she and Jaune don’t interact one-on-one very often, teams RWBY and JNPR are very close to each other and I’m sure that in the several months between the first day of school at Beacon to the Vytal Festival Yang got to know him well enough that she would be able to trust him with her baby sister if she wanted to be his girlfriend.

If Jaune was an intimidating-looking stranger twice Ruby’s age, then yes, Yang has reason to be suspicious of him. I would too. But Jaune is only two years older than Ruby is, and doesn’t even look remotely intimidating at all, and given that teams RWBY and JNPR know each other, she would definitely give the “okay” to her sister to start dating him.

Also, does Yang look ready to kill Jaune at all in this picture? While her younger sister is kindly helping him up?

Oh yes, Yang definitely looks suspicious here. She looks so READY to kill Jaune for being Ruby’s friend.

things I look for in fanfic:

I WOULD DIE FOR fluff/angst/slow burn romance multi-chapter fics with an interesting plot. Lots and lots of drama/tension is always really nice and I would love love LOVE to read a fic sprinkled with little moments of fluff/teasing (and dorkiness) where they slowly get closer and closer as the plot advances and before they know it, they’re in love.

there really haven’t been many fics like this because of how small this ship is but a lancaster fic like this (which is one of my favorite fanfictions ever and perfectly fits the description above) would kill me

who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other:

Jaune: Pyrrha (if only she were still alive ;n;), Ren, Neptune (not really, but yee I kinda lowkey ship)

Ruby: Sun (!!!!) and Penny. That’s really about it lmao

though i’m kinda beginning to lowkey ship her w/nora lol

my happily ever after for them:

All I really want is RNJRWBY to all live and defeat Salem once and for all. And then have Ruby and Jaune hug and confess or something. I don’t know. Just as long as Salem is defeated near the end of the series several volumes from now and Jaune and Ruby get together then I guess I’ll consider it a happily ever after. :3

who is the big spoon/little spoon:

Jaune is definitely big spoon and Ruby little.

what is their favorite non-sexual activity: 

CUDDLING. I can definitely see Jaune and Ruby cuddling a lot if they were to have a relationship, especially on cold cold nights.

I’m so sorry for the long essay but aaaaa thank you so much for asking! :D

Question: Am I the only one who doesn’t like to refer to holiday items by the year? Like, if I say I’m missing 2015 holiday apparel, that’s 2 different cycles of stuff, you know? bc the flight rising year restarts in June with Brightshine and we get a new cycle of things. There is no Jan-May 2013. it’s technically Jan-May 2014 but it’s still the same cycle of items as June-Nov 2013.

BASICALLY, it really confuses me. So it makes more sense to me to refer to holiday stuff in cycles. Like this:

  • the sprites, armband, and extra apparel are Cycle 1 items;
  •  the bears, sashes, and that year’s extra apparel are Cycle 2; 
  • The guardians, crowns, and that year’s extra apparel are Cycle 3;
  •  This year’s Goblins, vistas and this year’s extra apparel are Cycle 4;
  •  In June, would start Cycle 5 and so on

that makes sense, right? or am i making this more confusing and this only makes sense to me?

anonymous asked:

Hi, Ava! You mentioned that BEYOND THE RED is your tenth manuscript. I was wondering, were the other nine all complete, revised manuscripts or a mix of complete, partial, and ideas? Did you work with critique partners / betas for all of them, or only some? I'm curious whether you feel it's worth moving on from a manuscript in the planning / writing stages, or if you think writers should complete each manuscript to the fullest extent in order to get the most benefits from the experience.

Hi there! So this is the timeline (or, I guess more accurately, project pipeline) I went through: 

  • MANUSCRIPT 1: First drafted, line edited a lot, queried, put away
  • MANUSCRIPT 2: First drafted, line edited a lot, queried, put away
  • MANUSCRIPT 3: First drafted, line edited a lot, queried, put away
  • MANUSCRIPT 4: First drafted, started line edits…decided nah and put away
  • MANUSCRIPT 5: First drafted, line edited, queried, put away
  • MANUSCRIPT 6: First drafted, didn’t even do line edits because hoooo boy that was a mess
  • MANUSCRIPT 7: First drafted, started line edits…decided nah and put away
  • MANUSCRIPT 8: First drafted, kind of started line edits…decided maybe later and put away
  • MANUSCRIPT 6: Back again! I pulled this back out, revised in earnest, doubled the length of the manuscript (to 80k), FINALLY found critique partners, worked with them, did loads of revisions, queried again…and eventually put away again. :( 
  • MANUSCRIPT 9: First drafted, started edits…decided nah and put away
  • MANUSCRIPT 10—BEYOND THE RED: First drafted, revised in earnest, worked with critique partners, revised some more, queried—and signed with my agent. Yay! 

So to answer your question, all of them were fully drafted manuscripts. If I were to count the ideas I partially drafted and gave up on along the way the list would be much longer. There’s also no question that I improved in leaps and bounds once I started working with critique partners. 

As far as whether writers should move on from a manuscript in the planning stages, it really depends on the MS! I still walk away from manuscripts in the planning stages if I don’t feel they’re a good fit—ultimately I don’t want to force myself through a project I’m not going to enjoy because if I’m not having fun it’s going to be both torturous for me and it’d probably be a wreck anyway. 

That said I learned a ton from each of those manuscripts even though I ultimately put nine out of ten of them away. Every one was a different learning experience and helped me improve as a writer. 

So my advice is follow the projects you’re passionate about—and if after you write them you decide you want to move on to something else, that’s cool too. No writing is ever wasted.

sorry i just read kouta & shoutarou’s blog posts from today & im crying i have sO MANY HOPES FOR HAISUTE 4 KINKUNI & IM STARTING TO FEEL LIKE THEYRE ACTUALLY GONNA DELIVER 

highlights for those of u who either cant read japanese or cant be bothered to go use google translate:

  • “you’re turning on the Kunimi appeal” - Kouta
  • “let’s work together now more than ever! Shoutarou!!” - Kouta
  • “let’s think about what we can do with Kunimi tomorrow” - Kouta
  • “they really are a pair!” - Shoutarou [about Kunimi & Kindaichi]
  • “I trust you! Turnip-kun.” - Shoutarou (sidenote: the title of Shoutarou’s blog post today was “rakkyo” which is what Tanaka - & everyone else, subsequently - calls Kindaichi, “rakkyo-kun”, the most common translation of which is “turnip-kun”)

So I barely made it this week. 80% is really not enough for me. But I get to add on a new goal! So this week I am adding on eating my prepped food 6/7 days (I only prep 6 days). I ate out way too many time last week. Which is why my weight is way up. 226.2 this morning. That’s about 10.5 pounds above my lowest. So I’m not happy with that at all. Less than 4 pounds down from the start of the year. I’m doing keto again. Which I’m hoping to stick to for a good chunk of time. I always come back to it. It works for me. I am hoping not to weigh myself until Saturday morning, but we’ll see.

@525600choices how was your week?

Could you please edit some Anti effects into Jack's facecam in Detention #4 starting at 28:00? That's right after the "reflecting the true nature of your soul" bit, so Jack is talking in the Anti voice, but there aren't any Anti effects to go along with it. I thought it would be cool if you added those in in a gif :D

That’s a really cool idea! I’ll see what I can do :D
