Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter Cream 

This dinner is time-saving and simple, but it doesn’t lack quality or flavor. It is simply incredible. 

Ingredients

1 lb fresh wild mushroom ravioli  

8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter 

1 shallot, minced 

1 tsp fresh sage, chopped 

1 cup heavy cream 

½ - ¾ cup shredded parmesan cheese 

Salt and pepper, to taste 

Fresh parsley, chopped 

Directions for Ravioli

For the ravioli, bring a few quarts of salted water to a boil – and cook the ravioli according to the recommended time. 

Drain and set aside if you are not finished making the sauce by the time the ravioli are finished. 

Directions for Sauce 

Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. 

Place the shallot and stick of butter into the pan. 

Allow the butter to melt slowly over the course of a few minutes. During this time, add in the sage. 

Season with salt and pepper.

Once the butter begins to form brown bits and brown, reduce the heat to low and add in the heavy cream. 

Whisk in the heavy cream and bring the heat back to medium. 

Allow the mixture to gently bubble before adding in the cheese.

Add in the cheese, fresh parsley, adjust the seasoning to your taste, and allow the sauce to thicken. This generally takes 2-3 minutes with constant stirring. 

Adjust the seasoning if necessary. 

Add in the cooked ravioli and warm them for 1 minute. 

Serve while hot and garnish with more fresh parsley or sage. 

Enjoy!

Fondness and Acceptance

I love how Dan complains so often about Phil eating his cereal, leaving cabinets open, leaving his contact lens container on the tap, etc., but he always laughs fondly when he does so.

He knows Phil will eat his cereal, so he buys an extra box and hides it. He knows Phil will eat some of the ingredients for the baking video, so he buys an extra bag and hides it.

Despite his own preference for order and Phil’s tendency toward chaos, Dan accepts Phil how he is. Every single day for several years, Dan has chosen to continue sharing his life with Phil, just shaking his head in amusement at the ways Phil constantly “annoys” him.

Most spouses aren’t even that accepting of each other’s foibles. I’m not going to say this is proof of anything except that Dan’s amount of affection for Phil is apparently greater than his ability to be annoyed, and that is rare and precious in any relationship.

To be loved and accepted like that doesn’t happen to many people in their lifetimes. Whatever kind of love it is—platonic or romantic—Dan obviously loves Phil more than most people will ever experience. But who wouldn’t love Phil like that if given the chance?

Ways to bond with a deity

- Read up on their mythology! Highlight and jot down cool facts about them that you find. Take note of their associations, as well as anything that may offend them so that you know what to avoid. Read as much as you can about their entire pantheon. What better way to get to know someone than meeting their friends and family?

- Dedicate a small space for them. This doesn’t need to be an extravagant altar, although it can be if you want it to! It can also be a shelf in your closet, or even a tiny shoebox that you’ve decorated for them! 

- Leave them small offerings. Burn some incense with their favourite herbs or scents, a candle, wine, fresh flowers etc. This should be tailored to what their associations are. 

- Make them something! Whether it’s colouring a picture, making a little clay sculpture, or maybe even baked cookies, they will love it. It doesn’t matter how it turns out but you should try your best. Think of it as a child making something for their parent.

- Leave things at their altar that you found that made you think of them.

- Make a playlist full of songs you associate with them.

- Have a devotional journal for them. Write poems and hymns for them, letters to them, song lyrics, etc.

- Just sit down, meditate for a bit, and then talk to them! Tell them about your day, your hopes and dreams, and what you love about them.

Good luck!

Forest Altar

All today I have been wanting to create an altar for the forest / lake spirit, Ne'er Recur. My backyard is an entire mountain, built upon old burial grounds as well. Creating an altar for him, I feel, may be a bit difficult…but certainly doable. Here is what I have for ideas right now;


NE'ER RECUR;

-Bones (particularly a deer / fish skull or antlers)
-Stones
-Ores
-Dried / pressed leaves, plants, flowers, herbs
-Bottle of lake / swamp water
-Picture of Ne'er Recur (I do intend to try to draw him sometime)
-Shells
-Metal bell
-Quartz
-Candles
-Pentacle
-Coins

OFFERINGS;

-Dried Rosemary
-Burned Herbs
-Small cakes / Baked goods
-Alcohol
-Stolen Goods (He is…a sly thing.)
-Coins / shiny objects
-Marigolds

I might as well say now, Ne'er Recur is a rather tall creature. Around 7ft i’d say…he wears a long brown and green cloak, folded-over leather boots, and a deer’s skull as a mask. Sometimes when his hood is down, his scruffy dark brown hair can be seen. Like I do, he often carries around small bags of herbs or stones on his belt. Soon I hope to post a picture of him here 🌲🐟🐚🌾

anonymous asked:

OMG OK. How would UF bros and SF Pap react to S/Os grandma just basically making him into her honorary grandson. Like, she'll knit little scarfs for him and bake cookies for S/O and the Skele when they visit and she'll just be a precious bean to the edgy boy and she'll always give him hugs and all that good stuff.

Here’s some fluff to brighten your moods from that last ask :)

Red is completely freaked out and just why???? Out of all the other grandsons in her family, while choose him??? He’s a confused bean. Of course he wears the scarves and eat the cookies, but he’s such a tsundere about it, not to your grandma, but to you. He does like the scarves though, he has a favorite one that’s red with bones stitched onto them. Even if he may not show it, he loves your grandma more than any other of your family members.

Fell is edgy as fuck, but that doesn’t he’s not respectful. He treats her like a queen and for once, he sets his pride down even for her. Fell loves that she treats him with affection, but like Red, he gets very tsundere when she does. He’ll eat her cookies while joking that there’s probably poison in them and whenever you two visit, he’ll always wear one of the scarves she knits. You grandma is one of the very few people in his life that he genuinely loves.

AHHH Rus ADORES your grandma. He never had a mother and she becomes a great substitute. He’s always helping her around by reaching for stuff on the top counter, cleaning her house for her, helping her bake, taking her on walks, stuff like that. Whenever he has money to spare, he’ll buy her nice little gifts to make her happy.  Rus will gladly wear any clothes that she knits for him, even if it’s considered ugly and people make fun of him for wearing it. He knows that it was made from love and aside from you, it feels nice to have that love close to him. You two always set aside a free day to visit your grandma once a week.
