And on to the second course of shirred eggs, also from Celtic Folklore Cooking. This recipe was quite easy & really good. Rich, but with only a bit of milk and cheese, it tasted so nourishing! The rest of the radish/watercress/bread alongside.
I ATTEMPTED to ignite some tiny pine cones that were leftover decorations from Yule. I was all ready for a big fireworks show and full blaze in the three legged pot I use for a cauldron. Hadn't people told me about lighting up their Yule tree, and whoosh, massive blaze? I was ready. Window open, pitcher of water handy, cautious with the dangling robe sleeves, and fizzle. They just wouldn't ignite. So yesterday the little coney cones went out to the foot of the Goddess Tree with the tulips that curled in the heat of all the candles.
Lighting lots of candles was fun. I lit 20 beeswax tealights total. All the flames leaned in towards my luscious pale pink tulips. It didn't take them long to curl up. So beautiful, and so evanescent.
See my lambies peeking? I used them as Yuletide decor. I have a fair amount of sheep type trinkets. I'm going to incorporate them into a permanent altar for Brigid. Blessings to all!
