1) Mabon Prep: Food
Here in Colorado, the Autumn Equinox, also called Mabon, is on September 22nd. I was originally planning a picnic dinner but I have a baby shower that evening (Yay for babies!!) so I am planning now on a picnic lunch, weather permitting. Luckily the forecast for next Saturday is partly cloudy with a high of 75 so that looks good.
I am going to keep it simple (my new motto) so I’m going to do this Butternut Squash Soup, which I think I will make the day before, Turkey Legs, and apple pie with ice cream for dessert. These should be simple enough for me to do and relatively cheap.
The soup will be a fun thing to try and I don’t know how well it will go over with Monkey and Jason, but I’m still going to try it! I’ll have to remember to snap a picture of Monkey’s face when he takes his first bite!
I don’t think I really need to explain why I picked turkey legs because they are pretty self explanatory. TURKEY LEGS!!! There, I explained it!
Apples are the main harvest at Mabon, so apple pie is a perfect fit for the Sabbat. While there is a pick-your-own apple farm in the area I don’t know if I will be able get there but I will try! That will go on my ambitious things to do list!
I think for beverages, I will make some warm/cold apple cider. I have a Kitchen Witch book at home I will look through for that recipe.
Also invited will be my mom and her household and we’ll see what they might bring!
Blessed Be! )O(
