Warm and hearty greetings to all!
Thank you once again to all those who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - Deities of the Moon
With the blessing of the Moon and the many deities of Her graceful light, it’s time to look back down- we’ve got a lot on our plates!
The theme for this week’s challenge is…
Wickedly Delicious: The Magick of Food and Drink
Food and drink are much more than a means of survival- they are a cause of celebration that brings people together. And did you know that tasty treats can become even more delicious when enhanced with a bit of magick?
Adding your good intent and a dash of magick can help to make not just the taste, but the entire eating experience much more enjoyable

Witchery in the Kitchen
Kitchen Witchery is a popular aspect of magick and a great (not to mention easy and fun) way for both beginners and experienced witches to add a dash of magick into their daily routine.
You can use Kitchen Magick whether or not you consider yourself to be a “Kitchen Witch”- in fact, you may already be using Kitchen Magick without knowing it!
For more about Kitchen Witchery, you can find a full description and more resources in the previous Kitchen Witchery Challenge

Many of us in the Northern Hemisphere will also be celebrating a Sabbat and the First Harvest Lammas/Lughnasadh this weekend- all the more reason to enjoy a blessed feast!
This week’s challenge is all about using magick to enhance your food and drink
Are you ready? I hope you’re hungry, because it’s… CHALLENGE TIME!
There are countless ways to approach this challenge, here are just a few suggestions to help you get started:
Kitchen Witchery ranges from cooking with love and care (imbuing your dish with good energy) to doing large-scale rituals in the kitchen. Feel free to add some spellwork of any size to your cooking this week!

You can also check out the Recipies Category of the forum for more magickal cooking ideas!
No cooking necessary!
Blessing the food or drink in front of you is a wonderful and easy way to enhance a dish and add magick into your day- all you have to do afterwards is to eat it!

A thoughtful gratitude meditation for the blessings of the harvest and the food on our plates is a lovely way to connect with the cycle of nature and tap into a wholesome mindset
