This is so nice. Cool initiative OP! (I'm not being naive and this is a real thing right?)
>everybody finally getting their damn vaccinations>tfw you're in asia and your country still hasn't rolled out vaccinations properlyAlso please don't namefag especially with such a cringey name.
>>10629677>tfw you're in latin america and chaos is the new stabilityI feel your pain
>>10629677Found the tourist. Welcome newfag.
>>10629671100% real. Feel free to dig through the archives for other contests I have held.>>10629677Oh anon, sweetie...>>10629682Everyone starts somewhere. They will learn eventually.
>>10629677>>10629679Seems kinda samefaggy.
>>10629689Nah, I'm >>10629679 and >>10629671
>>10629682gropey is still trash though.
>>10629700Except not? Gropes is one of the only decent oldfags here.
>>10629682>newfagSure Jan. No one liked namefags even back in the day so don't try to feed me that bullshit.
>>10629706At least they are doing something different instead of adding randons to the ita thread or posting "hot" takes kek
>>10629706>Doesn't know Gropey or /cgl/board cultureYou can be as wrong as you want as loud as you want but are still an obvious newfag.
omfg >>10629677 was already cringey enough, but >>10629706 just takes the newfaggery to a whole new levelI'm glad you've stuck around despite this happening every time you post, Gropey
There's only six posters in this thread. Smells like a circlejerk.
>>10629700>>10629706You don't have to participate, anon. It's ok.>>10629708>>10629710>>10629726Don't sweat it. Some people just like to make fools of themselves.
>>10629733Check the IPs. The anticlown anon is posting the most.
>>10629735You're right. I checked their IP. They're a jelly hater.
>>10629735How do you even do that?
>>10629875nayrt but search for "4chan tricks"
bless you, gropey.
burn the clown and his field of edible flowers
I am about to move, but once that is over this sounds fun. I'll try to put something together.
I've seen a handful of outdoor lolita meet vlogs and it makes me hella jealous for working a 9 to 5 and missing daylight in general
I don't have any pics, but I made seitan and I was thinking about trying to make some tasty things for vegans. For the next picnic, I was thinking of doing a sandwich station.
>>10630011I highly recommend vegan cucumber or chickpea salad sandwiches with a lot of colorful veggies for ones that feel like tea sandwiches and will look nice and pretty when cut diagonal.
>>10629875There's an add-on for Firefox and Chrome that you literally just download. >>10629895Honk honk>>10629906>>10630011>>10630018Make it happen! I'd love to see!
>>10630018I love tea sandwiches, but they're so much last minute prep I think they're easier for smaller groups. I was thinking more like bringing proteins, toppings, and some spreads. That way, whatever your dietary needs or tastes, you can have something. Things like onion jam, roasted tomatoes, grilled chicken or pork, grilled veggies, etc.
>>10630037>There's an add-on for Firefox and Chrome that you literally just download.I learned something today.Pic isn't mine but fits the thread. Thanks Gropey.
>>10630702They look delicious! What a cute idea :)
>>10630702This is adorable and very portable if you were to close the envelope
>>10630706that would just be a regular danish you fucking retard.
>>10630728But with a cute heart. You would want the filling to not get all over the place if you were packing for a picnic.
>>10630728It looks like a pie crust, not puff pastry. Would hardly call a hand/mini pie a danish. The point of the envelope is that it looks cutesy, and the main thing doing that is the heart cutout on it, not whether it's special or unique in any other way.Take your unnecessary negativity elsewhere or share some fun recipes or other on topic stuff rather than whining.
>>10630738it is pie crust, and it's really easy to make. i want to make some now!https://lizbushong.com/cherry-pie-pastry-envelope/
>>10630738the topic is retarded.
>>10630760You're retarded for not hiding the thread.
>>10630760As are you, new friend.
>>10629902>his field of edible flowersI typically wouldn't respond to souphitposts but I need some explantation of this.
>>10630774probs has to do with tea (edible flowers, the op)
>>10630760Sounds like something a retard would say.Post cakes.
>>10629667This is such a cute idea! Do illustrations count? I've been meaning to make a washi tape themed around teas and tea sets, could send the layered PSD as proof that it's my art whenever I'm done with it.
In my country the pandemic is virtually over. But there's no community to meet up with and I'm too old and busy to gather people.Lonelita life
I’m vaccinated and desperate to have a meetup. I haven’t had one since last April. My garden is doing great this year and I’d love to make some candied violets with what I’ve grown and make some fancy baked goods. Even if it’s just a handful of people, I want to chill with people in person again. >Pic related, one of my violet beds plus some shit I might wear to a garden tea party if I ever get around to hosting one.
>>10631106Beautiful flowers. Also love your necklace, where'd you buy it?
>>10631119It’s from AatP. I bought it a while ago so I don’t think it’s in stock anymore, but they re-release similar necklace fairly often.
>>10631121Thanks, I'll keep that one in mind when I try to make a fancy coord
>>10630011Vegan carrot cake is super easy to make and might be a nice dessert. I can toss down a favored recipe if you want
>>10631155i'd like to see it if you have the time, anon.I'm a lonelita, but this time of year i find myself wanting a com, just so i have throw a tea party.
>>10630064Really? I have always found tea sandwiches super easy to prep and portable for events. Cucumber, watercress, and chicken salad are my go-tos.>>10630702You're welcome, and those look DELIGHTFUL.>>10630728Why so hostile?>>10630760Looks like I missed some fun.>>10630774A while back, my backyard had a huge bloom of wild violets, and I made a bunch of syrup and candied flowers for work treats.>>10631079>I SHOWED YOU MY CAKES PLZ RESPOND>>10631085Sure, why not? >>10631088Which country, if I may ask?>>10631106I dig it.>>10631208Try looking up Georgian and regency societies. There is a lot of cross over, and if you have it ok'd first, most welcome the egl crowd in coord.
>>10631256how can you eat tea sandwhiches after the moldy cream cheese story
>>10631273>the moldy cream cheese storyI am afraid to ask but must know.
>>10631292In the lolita confession thread
>>10631300if you can't see or taste a difference it's fine, i eat worse than that all the timet. issues with "wasting" food
>>10631256>Which country, if I may ask?Romania lol
>>10631088I wonder if we are in the same country. Basically no pandemic for me too and I’m also an old lonelita
>>10631400Well, you tell me >>10631399
I'm also a lonelita but don't mind it. I like doing things on my own or with my (non-lolita) friends. A picnic with other lolitas sounds nice in theory but I'm too intimidated and anxious to ever show up to one. I plan on wearing nice coordinates and going on walks to the park myself instead, and maybe I will make a few small cakes and have my own tea party.
>>10631106>>10630774>>10631256eating flowers are for vegans and witches. we burn vegans and witches around here
>>10631445“I plan on wearing…” okay so you’re a lolita at heart then? Did you just get your first devilinspired dress?
>>10631461Nope, maybe I just phrased that wrong. I mean I will just go on walks and stuff in lolita instead of events. I have been a lolita for 9 years, not that you care.
>>10631208I use this recipe but add 1/2tsp extra of vanilla: https://lovingitvegan.com/vegan-carrot-cake-lemon-buttercream-frosting/Scroll all the way down bc it’s one of the recipes where they write a shit ton about stuff no one reads. I haven’t tried their frosting though.
>>10631461>>10631510>I used to wear lolita. I still do, but I used to, too.
>>10631706not either ayrt but the initial post never implied they didn't wear lolita, they said they do stuff in lolita with normie friends and then mentioned the summer activities they plan to do while wearing lolita.
>>10631716It's a famous american stand-up joke, except the original is about weed. Only tangentially related to the tard who doesn't understand how verb tenses work. I plan on wearing underwear tomorrow, doesn't mean it's my first time.
https://yupitsvegan.com/chickpea-avocado-cucumber-bites/My bestie is vegan so when I last hosted a tea party I made these and they were a big hit with everyone. Does anyone have any other good tea party vegan recipes?
>>10631079How would I make the stems here? I keep thinking it's celery.
>>10631844Oooh those look great! Probably also good for summer rather than crackers since the cucumber would be cold and refreshing.
>>10632119kiwi or melon probably_
>>10632125If it's a Japanese cafe or recipe most likely melon based on the color and size of the pieces.
I don't know if this will be helpful for anyone, but I am lactose intolerant and I miss having clotted cream for scones. I found a recipe for a nondairy version. I have not tried it yet but I will once I get my hands on some lecithin.Might also be good for anyone who has comm members who don't or can't have dairy.
>>10635843Vegan anon from a few posts up here, I’ve used strained coconut cream for our scones and it was a really good substitute. I’ll have to give this version a try too! Thanks for the recipe!
>>10635888>>10631844Ah, is this you? If you're looking for vegan versions of foods, I'd really recommend https://thegentlechef.com/He's got some recipes on his website, and I have bought a couple of his books as well. I find it worthwhile personally as he really does try to make foods as close to the non-vegan version as possible, rather than just approximating stuff with blended cashew nuts everywhere.Personally for tea parties I like to make stuff like veggie sushi, which is relatively non-messy for people to eat, and which is served at room temperature so doesn't need to be kept hot for a long period of time. Charcuterie-style boards with crackers, crudites, houmous, tapenade, lots of olives and dried fruit, are also lovely. Platters of fresh berries and fruits are a nice break from the usual sweets and cakes (though if you want to make vegan sweets, most of the time you can substitute aquafaba for eggs, even in meringues and macarons)If people want hot food, soups with bread are popular in my comm. If anyone wants to go down a hell of a vegan baking rabbithole, macarons are fun but a real challenge: https://www.cookingoncaffeine.com/vegan-italian-macarons-aquafaba/
