Let’s make a Money Bowl

Let’s make a money bowl to start off the New Year! With the new year here my only resolution has been to post more and embrace my practice out in the open more. So with this in mind I want to share with you all a few things I am going to start using more in my daily practice. From Poppets, to Cinnamon Rituals on the 1st of the month, to other simple DIY things you can do on your own. Simmer Pots, Money Bowls, and anointing oils, there are so many things for me to share with you all.

Let’s Talk about Poppets

A poppet can be as simple or as elaborate as you like — it all depends on how much time and effort you want to put into it. You can construct one out of just about any material — cloth, clay, wood, wax. Use your imagination! In some magical traditions, it’s believed that the more work you put into it, and the more complex it is, the stronger your link will be to your goal. Because a poppet is a device for sympathetic magic, all of its components will be symbols of what it is you hope to achieve.

You can do your poppet-making as part of the working itself, or it can be made ahead of time so you can use the poppet later on. Which method you choose is really up to you.

Looking back & inward.

Looking back through memories that Facebook had to share with me, it dawned on me just how much growth that post presented in one little moment. As I examined that post, I wanted to share with you what made me reflect on so profoundly.

Make your own Tinctures, Tonics, & Oils

Learn to make your own Oils, Tonics, Infusions and more! As a green witch and a kitchen witch, I often make these for uses around the house. Cleansing, anointing, and for health benefits too, it all depends on what you are looking for.

CAULIFLOWER MAC N’ CHEESE

When I say this was amazing, I mean it truly was mind blowing how good this turned out. It was creamy, melty, warm, and comforting just like a pot of homemade mac n cheese should be. This is on our make again list for sure!

EASY Pierogi Skillet

We all enjoy a good crispy and warm pierogi, so when I saw this recipe I knew we had to give a try. Its simple, easy, and would be a great one to teach young children to make or even for a college student on a budget. With the meat, veggies, cheese, and warm pierogis is a hearty and satisfying meal that could easily make it on to anyone make again list. I know it did for us! We really enjoyed not only how easy it was but how good it was too.

14 Day Meal Plan: Fall Dinners

I hope you enjoy this round of dinner meal planning and that it helps someone else out there answer the age old question of “What’s for dinner?!” I find that it really does help with that especially in a household full of Neurodivergent people. Now this post is a little different than the other two because I have not made some of these yet and have only just found some of the new recipes to inspire me for the coming 2 week dinner meal plan. There are some classic ones in the list that I have made in the past and some that I hope will be new ones to add to the ” Make Again” arsenal.

14 Day Hearty Dinners Meal Plan

We just got through this list this week and some of the recipes have already found themselves up on the blog with their own posts. Just like the previous post this is how it will go: Below each recipe name will be the links to where I found the recipes; also some will have our own variations put up in separate blog posts, and others will have reviews.

I hope that this helps some of you, I know my family and friends all enjoy seeing these when I make them and following along when I make my own variations on recipes.

14 Day Meal Plan On a Budget- Dinners

So after quitting my job I took a long look at our budget and decided it was time for us to go back to meal planning. This is something I have done for a very long time but we take a break from when finances allow. However, now that we are back to a single income family of 5 it was time to start cutting back and reassessing our bills. I figured that there are many out there who could use this to help them as well, so I decided I will share with you what I have put together over the last few months. Below each recipe name will be the links to where I found the recipes; also some will have our own variations put up in separate blog posts, and others will have reviews.

Simple Ground Turkey Rigatoni Soup

This is one of my go-to soups for cold weather, and it is a family favorite. It is both hardy and flavorful, perfect when paired with some warm biscuits out of the oven or even some focaccia bread.

Simple Ground Turkey Rigatoni Soup: [ You could even do this in a crockpot- Just cook your meat first before tossing it into the crockpot] Ground Beef or Turkey [1-5 lbs] depending on how much you want to make.
