Samhain has arrived, and the midnight fae have it all ready to go from Smashwords in numerous file formats. Click the image above, and enjoy!
Coming up next, Esbats…
In the meantime, the veil is thin so connect with your ancestors and family. Try a traditional dumb supper, light candles in remembrance, read a spread and divine your future. Most important of all, love and listen!
Try this one for your dumb supper, it’s delicious comfort food everyone can love.
1 c raw, grated potato
1 c cooked leftover (or fresh) mashed potatos
1 onion, minced fine (optional)
1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 beaten egg
1 c buttermilk
2 tbsp butter
Combine grated potato, onion and buttermilk. In another bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder, then add potato mixture, egg and mashed potato. Batter should be somewhat the consistency of pancake mix. Add additional flour or buttermilk if need be.
Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of batter into skillet, forming 4″ circles. Brown on both sides.
Many blessings of the season, my hope for you all is a bright new year with enough.
Confused yet? I am… but I’m happy to say that we’ve finished tweaking and testing and fiddling with Lughnasadh, and it’s now available on Smashwords, Etsy and soon it’ll be up on Amazon for the Kindle. Probably within another week or so, it’ll start popping up through other retailers as well.

Lughnasadh, also known as Hlaf-mass (Loaf-mass), August Eve, Tailltean Games, Lammas, and Harvest Home, is named for the Celtic God of fire and sun, Lugh.
It is the beginning of the end of summer, of the growing season, and marks the first harvest of grain, garden and orchard. It is one of the cross-quarter festivals, a Great Fire festival, where bonfires are lit to give strength to the aging sun.
Happy Beltaine! I hope you enjoy a wee bit of Welsh mythology and a recipe for a sweet Beltaine treat our family indulges in, all excerpts from my Creating New Pagan Family Traditions – Beltaine chapbook.
