Witchy Side Note: If you have another association with the listed ingredients use those instead remember every magickal endeavors that you take on should come from your heart!
Also you may create a chant or spell to go along with this dish to enhance the energies of the meal, for example:
“As I stir this pot, grant those who eat it with love and harm them not.
Strength and power, I call about at this hour.
Fill their bellies and warm their soul, with each and every bowl.
This is my wish this is my plee, so mote it be!”
This may not be the best but I wrote it as it came to me! The more you think about it and change it the less powerful it becomes as you begin to forget what you decided upon when it’s time to say the spell or chant. You heart won’t steer you wrong so go with the flow and enjoy the magick!
