It's officially winter and last night was my time to share so good old traditional dishes with my friends. Something that started out with a little apprehension and a whole lot of doubting that it would last very long has become a very big event within the circle of people I love and last night was a big occasion. It was the official start of winter and warm feast was?definitely?in order. Of course the weather was all screwy, with rain that held the bonfire off until the nick of time and a particularly warm night that didn't really call for the bonfire.
It did call for soup though and I was the proudest little witch in the kitchen with my first attempt at a traditional pagan apple and pumpkin soup recipe. It was so yummy that I see it getting us through a few more winter nights and just couldn't help but share ... I know a few people out there who were bursting to ask for the recipe 😉
Unless it's so delicious that your friends get through it all 😉
Thanks you to my beautiful friends for the way that you revel in these occasions that I celebrated all by myself for so many years. I used to be proud but now I am purposeful in my sharing of my beliefs and your cooking, sharing, listening and part-taking in days like the welcome of winter has made my life and 'project me' so much more alive. Next one is Yule and I sure hope someone knows how to cook a turkey!
