Kitchen Witch Recipe: Protection and Prosperity Potatoes

Josh, I thought Foodie Friday wasn’t for a few days…

You’d be correct! However, just as I share other spells, I’d like to share some kitchen spells here and there! And what better way to start off than with protection and prosperity! Enjoy!

Fondant Potatoes for Protection and Prosperity

Ingredients:
-3 large Russet potatoes (prosperity, wealth, health)
-3 tbsp butter (prosperity, wealth, health)
-2 to 3 tbsp Vegetable oil (protection - many vegetable oils are soy, which is linked to protection)
-Rosemary sprigs (protection, wealth, cleansing)
-Salt (cleansing, protection)
-Pepper (protection)
-½ to 1 cup Chicken broth (prosperity, health)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (Fahrenheit). Cut ends off of the potatoes, then slice down the sides to peel and form cylindrical shapes. Cut the cylinders in half and soak in cold water for about 5 minutes to clean off excess starch. Pat dry with a paper towel.

2. Put oil in a non-stick, oven-safe skillet and put over high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the potatoes with presentation ends down, and lower the heat to  medium-high. Pan-fry until well browned. Season top-facing ends with salt and pepper.

3. Flip potatoes and season the tops. Use tongs to hold a paper towel and blot the oil out of the skillet. Add butter and rosemary to the skillet.

4. Use tongs to hold a sprig of rosemary and gently brush butter over the potatoes using the sprig. Cook until the butter foams and turns from white to tan.

5. Pour chicken broth into the skillet. and transfer to the oven. Let it cook until potatoes are crisp on the outside, but very tender on the inside, about 30 minutes. If potatoes aren’t tender by 30 minutes, add a quarter cup more broth and cook for 10 more minutes.

6. Transfer to plate or serving platter and spoon rosemary butter from the skillet over the potatoes. Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs, let cool for 5 minutes, and serve.

Culinary Notes

The main appeal to this dish is savory flavors, rustic presentation, and great texture. The aim is a very crispy exterior to the potatoes, with a tender, almost creamy interior. The flavor and aroma of the rosemary-infused butter will add a lovely touch to the chicken broth used to roast the potatoes. Serve either as a main or as an appetizer paired with meat dishes. (I made this as a main, with a side of sauteed asparagus with a thin balsamic glaze.)

Witchy Tips!

Cook with intent! The ingredients certainly have a lot of influence, but cooking a magical meal means adding each ingredient with the appropriate visualization and intent for what you’re aiming for with the spell.

Don’t be afraid to personalize! Add sigils to the non-presentation ends of the potatoes before cooking, draw the sigil with the oil when adding it to the pan, or trace symbols in the air over the dish before or during cooking. Whatever you feel may add to the spell, add!

Pairings always help! If you feel an ingredient needs to be substituted or paired with another, do so! Thyme is traditional with fondant potatoes, but I felt more inclined to use rosemary when casting this spell. Alternatively, one could use both thyme and rosemary for a double whammy! Likewise one could pair the dish with another dish - in the case of protection and health, perhaps it could be paired as a side dish with chicken cacciatore, or served with red wine to promote prosperity and health!

Confidence! One of the greatest lessons I’ve ever learned or needed to teach is that intent is the most important aspect to a spell. If your intention and heart is in the right place, you can’t mess up the spell! The same goes for cooking. Cook with confidence, and avoid second guessing, and you’ll end up with something flavorful and wonderful! This is why cooking and witchcraft go so well with each other! Intent is key for both skills!

May all your meals be blessed!
Blessed Be! )O(

So if you don’t control your life who does? Who have you given your power to? Someone’s got it. And they are going to mis-use it every time. You are the rightful owner of your personal power.

7 Ways to Avoid Being Brainwashed by White People

The influence of white supremacy permeates in every area of life. 

Here are 7 ways to actively counter the negative effects of white supremacy.

Give them toys, books, movies, games that include Black characters and Black stories. If they grow up surrounded by the power of their own story, they will be better able to resist white supremacy’s disempowering narratives.

The Black community has over 1 trillion dollars in spending power. But it is only power if it is used smartly, with discipline and wisdom. The Black community should demonstrate that the Black dollar can no longer be taken for granted.

To shield yourself from white supremacy, consider shutting down one of its most powerful forces. TV is used to disseminate propaganda that facilitates global white domination.

Learning what made Black people great at one point and understanding the tactics our enemies used against us in the past will help us become great again in the future and avoid the mistakes of the past.

Using destructive language when referring to each other only continues to disempower us as a group. Use of these terms keeps us in a perpetual state of low self-respect and self-esteem.

When exercising dominion over another group, the white power structure exerts control over several important branches of society. White control of education is very important to maintaining their dominance over the Black mind, body, and spirit. To counter the white power structure’s efforts to keep you ignorant, docile and complacent look for ways to expand your knowledge outside of white-controlled institutions.

The best way to fight the enemy’s culture is to embrace your own. Centuries of greatness in the Motherland and strength and resilience in the New World offer a wealth of culture to remain connected to your roots.

Rather radical and powerful list of some important ways to maintain knowledge of our past, of our history, of our roots.This is a very decent path to keep our culture for future generations! Use every opportunity to strengthen our heritage. Don’t let yourself be influenced by foreign culture and don’t let them wipe out yours.

Teach your kids knowledge! This is the strongest tool!

Imagining Creates Reality

“First, you must know what you want, then create an image that fulfills it. Would your friends know and talk about it? Imagine they are with you now, discussing your fulfilled desire. You could be at a cocktail or dinner party that is being given in your honor. Or maybe it’s a little get-together over tea. Create a scene in your mind’s eye and believe its reality in! That invisible state will produce the objective state you desire, for all objective reality is solely produced by imagination. The clothes you are now wearing were first imagined. The chair in which you are seated, the room that surrounds you - there isn’t a thing here that wasn’t first imagined; so you can see that imagining creates reality. If you don’t believe it, you are lost in a world of confusion. There is no fiction.” ~ Neville Goddard

For more never-before-heard law of attraction tricks and tips, I now provide private law of attraction e-coaching. To know more please read here.

You can’t always tell if someone is mentally ill by looking at them.

You can’t always tell if someone is disabled by looking at them.

You can’t always tell if someone is Autistic by looking at them.

You can’t always tell who is and isn’t neurodivergent or disabled  in a group of people by looking at them.

Don’t make assumptions, don’t generalize, don’t try to categorize people based on your inferences drawn only from their appearances (I mean this in terms of physical looks and in terms of behavior, by the way.)

Many people are frightened or abused into behaving and appearing neurotypical/non-disabled even when they aren’t. 

Sometimes they simply act or look the way people associate with people who aren’t neurodivergent or disabled. That doesn’t make them fakers, or “high functioning,” or whatever else people say to invalidate other people and their experiences.

Neurodivergent and disabled people have always existed, we just aren’t always recognized as such by neurotypical/abled people.

That doesn’t make us, or our disabilities, conditions, and disorders, invisible. It makes other people uninformed. And hopefully, it won’t always be like that, with our growing voices and the new wealth of resources available, for anybody to learn from.

He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night.

What’s The Point Of A 5 Year Plan?

You don’t need to jump to a five year plan. Its a good tool to keep in mind but its for a few steps later. Just be aware that in 5 years you will be somewhere… but where depends on how you spend your evening now, and your morning tomorrow. Its literally morning noon and night that you need to take care of first. Before even making a decision, you need a period of quiet and reflection and Truth. You need to assess your results (income, education, relationships, friendships, family-ship, health, well-being, happiness) and see where you’re struggling and why. It takes courage to be honest with ourselves on THAT level. Then, let your true desires come to the surface. Not what you’ve been taught. Just listen to your inner voice that gets shut up so often because we live in a loud world.
Then, you’ll have an idea of what things would make you happy (a second source of passive, steady income, better physique, better grades, more meaningful friendships, a certain personality trait you’d like, owning your first home  etc, etc) Put all these things in a list.  And so you have an idea of what you want your path to be like.
Then these aren’t things you’ve decided externally. You’re just listening to the desires that are within you. It’s natural to want these things. Then because they are natural, the fulfillment of the desire is inevitable.
So you will have a list of goals. Realize what is the biggest hardest one? That’s number one. That’s what you visualize ALREADY having done. Go after the biggest goal, the one you’re not even sure how it will happen. You will raise your awareness, vibration, perception and attitude to such a high level that in trying to reach goal one, you will pick up goals 5, 4, 3, and 2 on the way up! With less effort than you think.
It’s even easy to have a pessimistic or cynical attitude to self helping yourself. Someone may think that well I have to take action to produce a result. But it isn’t as black and white. What mentality you’re taking the action from actually decides the outcome. So this is why people try to change their thinking, think better, positive, adopt a wealth mindset or better attitude. And its hard to make any lasting change because you’ve thought one way for 10, 20, 30 years. But it can be done. And you will get it done.

Your time, thoughts and money must be an investment:

This day and this very moment do not recede into the past. They advance into your future. If you have been unsatisfied with the past, or even this morning, this is a sign you need to master the art of revision, and invest in better thoughts. The present moment is only a mirror: it only shows you the sum total of your inner feelings and most consistent thoughts. If you have had a conversation that was unpleasant, re-write the script. Either on paper or in imagination (both if you can), re-write what you wish you had heard and play it over in your imagination until you can accept the truth of it. And realize that every morning, afternoon, evening and night, you are offering thoughts to the Universe. Treat thoughts like currency. You can think any thought you want, and the best part it is free. But the thought will become matter, it will become part of your reality, sooner or later. 

You can think anything you want. No one can ever force you to think without your consent. Reality might be showing you a different picture now, but don’t accept it. With the art of revision and investing into positive thoughts, you can change your tomorrow.
