Happy Yule all!
Yule at our house this year meant soul food. I’m not sure how or why that happened, but I’m partially blaming the inspiration on Loki Himself.
Our Yule turkey was bacon wrapped and slow cooked for about 8 hours, the mashed potatoes had an entire quart of half and half as well as a stick of butter (luscious…they were like velvet), there were sautéed mushrooms and asparagus in simple wine sauce, and this was all rounded out with a cheesy veggie bake. By the time we worked our way through this Yule feast no one minded that I’d forgotten to make the ginger cake for dessert.
Candles are lit in our windows and I have a special offering for Loki and Odin ready to go out this evening. (White chocolate and strawberry chocolate as well as a Rootbeer candy cane and some seasonal beer.) I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and boast long and loud about your Beloved Gods.
