Them Ancestors

Blessings Darlings!

As many of y'all know, I don't use 'calendar dates' for the Celtic holy days.  I use nature's signals.  And given the recent unusual cold weather in the Northeastern US - we had our killing frost last night.  So by my reckoning, Samhain is this Wednesday.

So one wonders, why are the Ancestors coming early this year?  Is part of the message that we REALLY REALLY need their wisdom now, during what Byron Ballard calls 'tower time'?  Well, yes, of course we do.

Step up your workings with the Ancestors, my loves.  It is critical!

Learn to cook. It's not hard.

Blessings Darlings!

Work - at the restaurant - has been a bear lately.  We've been getting slammed with customers.  And it's not as if our food is something to write home about.  Folks can make this stuff at home easily, and without spending much time.  And without spending the silly amount we charge for this stuff.  Really - $1.25 for a cup of soup?  Two dollars for a soda or a cup of coffee?

I just don't get it.

Make your own dang French Toast - beat a couple of eggs with a splash of milk and a dash of cinnamon.  Dip slices of bread into that mix.  Fry the dipped bread. Done!

It's not hard. We are not serving you fancy stuff. 

Take a dead chicken (really, this is a recipe, not another dead chicken spell). Put some poultry seasoning, or lemon pepper, or garlic salt, or BBQ rub on it.  Put it in a pan.  Put it in the oven at 350 for one hour.  During the first half hour - talk to your kids.  Second half hour, cook some rice and  put some frozen veggies in a pot and simmer them.  Done!

Have the kids do the clean up.  They need to learn that.
