#493946 out of infinite reasons why i love tony stark: would knowingly use “fuck you, [name]” as a pun while naked in bed with his partner. would point out said pun. would be proud. had been waiting for this opportunity for the last six months
do you have any discreet suggestions for a samhain meal/treat? (i'm a sucker for sweets btw)
Well… it is the season for pumpkin and pecan pie, which is a great dessert for samhain! But i’ll give you a list of ideas and you can pick and choose what will work best for your family and tastes! (Sorry no recipe links, but you can find recipes for everything through google!)
Pumpkin Pie (you will see a lot of pumpkin on this list, sorrynotsorry)
Sugar cookies (cut into festive shapes!)
Apple Bread (drooool)
Herb Bread Rolls
Pumpkin & Black Bean Chile (really good, you will be surprised)
You can actually make a gratin with potatoes and turnips and its delish
Just a few ideas! ;) & keep in mind, since its already food, its fairly discreet as it is! If you are cooking, you can tell people you want to try a new recipe, or if there is something on the list that your family wouldn’t typically eat, but may match something in your heritage, you can say you want to try some more “traditional” recipes. For example I am heavily Irish, and bram brack, soul cakes and colcannon originate from Irish traditions (from what I have been told) and my family (parents included) always make them on Samhain. But when celebrating with friends that aren’t aware that I am a witch or celebrating Samhain instead of halloween, I just tell them its my family traditional foods! (I do this for other holidays too).
I want you to know something. It’s very, very important.
You know that dream you once had? That vision that stirs your soul so much that your eyes sting with tears?
You can do it.
No, really. Life is hard. I don’t say that to negate any of the really gritty crap that may be going on in your life. I say that because it is real. Whenever I’m going through something that is really stretching me, breaking me down, I never fail to find someone who is going through more. Living in this fallen, imperfect world is truly difficult.
But that dream of yours - it is vitally necessary to making it worthwhile.
Only YOU have that vision. It is YOURS. And it came to you for reason. And in your mind, let it be sacred. This world will wear you out and make you feel your dreams aren’t worthwhile.
Don’t lose your vision! Close your eyes and really let yourself be immersed in that dream. Put it to paper, whatever that means for you. Place it somewhere you will see it daily.
But don’t let it die.
Fear is a strong motivator. But so is hope. My prayer today is for you to do one thing that brings you closer to your vision, even if it’s taking the first step and simply giving yourself permission to dream.
