This year I will be having two Mabon feasts. One with my coven/ circle (I still don’t know what we are calling our selves) and one with my family. The one with the group will be a potluck and I think I am just bringing apple cider. As you can see from the menu below I am making the day special by having fancier meals then normal (except lunch) and honoring the season by using the fruits and vegetables that are local and ripe right now. What I can get from my garden is best.
Days Menu for Mabon
Breakfast: Baked apples. I am planning on halving the apples and baking them like normal and then putting a scoop of granola in the apple and then a scoop of honey greek yogurt. Clearly this is an extra special breakfast to set the mood for the day.
Lunch: Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. If you want to see how I make tomato soup check out this post. The best part of this is that Little can help me make it.
Dinner: Green Garden Salad(cherry tomatoes from our garden)
Roasted yams in their Jackets (from the CSA box, coat with oil and prick )
Glazed carrots (from our garden, saute in a little butter and sage, at the end add some honey or maple syrup)
Greens and mushrooms (spinach, chard, kale what have you. Saute olive oil with some garlic and chopped onion. add in mushrooms then add in greens. cook till wilted)
Roasted pork loin with apples ( oven at 400 which also works for the yams. coat loin in olive oil and parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, it helps to sing the song along with this lol. salt and pepper. place in the middle of a baking dish. Core and slice apples and place them around the pork loin. place dish in oven and cook till done.
Apple pie (with a small apple crisp for me) might use the one from October Farm that my husband LOVED
What are you cooking up in your house?
