Just a bit of chicken kitchen witchery.
The spell is a simple tea, mostly chamomile, inspired by the book to help her sleep.
Okay, so do y'all remember a few weeks ago when Bishop busted into the room at like 2am to tell me about this great food idea he had been dreaming about? Butternut squash and kale pasta with a garlicky white sauce. Doesn't matter. We finally made it. With a few twists.
Brussels sprouts caramelized in maple syrup and then sprinkled with bacon. It's like heaven for my fresh food starved soul.
A healing skin salve. It seems simple doesn't it? Oil and flowers. The power of sunlight to mix it all together. It can't be that simple. Can it. Yep. It can. It is. We call it Fairy Magic.
I don't know about your household, but mine can use all the calm it can get right now. Thankfully, for a kitchen witch, calm and healing are only a bubbling cauldron away.
Okay, so I did a thing today. I've been craving meatloaf but every recipe I've ever used has had ketchup in it. Ketchup in the actual loaf and then a honey/ketchup sauce on top. Since tomatoes now cause allergic reactions, this was a problem.
Remember when I was so excited to find a back alley herbal shop a few weeks ago? Olivia started coughing again today so it's time to put those magical treasures to work.
We decided to make Meal Kits. And Y'all. This might be the most brilliant parenting hack I've discovered so far.
Are you ready for a quick recipe? This one is in no way healthy. I don't even think serving it on top of a salad would save it. But sometimes you need comfort. I've seen variations of this called funeral potatoes and cheesy potatoes. We just call them Messy Potatoes because in the early years of childbirth brain damage the only way I could think to make these was by combining them by hand.
