Merry Meet! First of, Happy Lughnasadh/Lammas everyone! I hope you had a great day yesterday.
For my kitchen magic, I decided to incorporate some magic into my Lughnasadh celebration food. I asked for permission from all those attending first, especially since they are not pagan. I explained to them that I would be cooking with specific intentions in mind such as love and friendship. They were “why wouldn’t we want that?” Lol!!
Our meal consisted of fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries), blackberry marinaded pork loin, steamed organic green beans, and grilled squash (summer and zucchini).
My friends wanted to bring dishes that would be seen in the celebration as well. They did this completely without my knowledge and it meant so much to me! One made spinach dip with triscuits, another a corn-based side that was amazing, and the other a strawberry-based dessert. I love my friends!
Back to the meal prep! As I made the marinade for the pork loin, I added each ingredient to the bag and stated my intentions. I thanked the pig for giving their life so that we may have food and wished them we’ll on their next journey. This then went into the fridge overnight.
Sunday, my husband smoked the pork loin. He humored me by keeping the same intentions in mind as he tended the pit. For the vegetables, I worked in a similar manner. As I cleaned and chopped and add spices, I would state my intentions.
I made the amazing bread machine seed bread recipe that Amethyst shared. Right as it was about to bake, I carved a heart into the top as a symbol of the love I share with my husband and my friends.
Overall, I absolutely loved this challenge and exploring kitchen magick. I’m definitely going to keep exploring it!.
