Imbolc Countdown: Food and Feasting

By January 27, 2014

Follow me on:

I'm one of those people who doesn't really count an event as a celebration until the food comes out -- I'm all about keeping a well-stocked table, and feeding anyone who comes within fifty yards of my house at just about any given time. I also try to plan my Sabbat menus a bit, so that the food I'm preparing and eating ties in a little bit, on a seasonal level, to whatever agricultural marker it is that I'm celebrating. So, Northern Hemisphere readers, what's on the menu for your Imbolc celebration? If you're not sure what to cook, try one of these ideas to get you started!

I’ve been trying my hand at soups made with cream the last few months (think Cream of Pumpkin,) so I’m thinking a nice corn chowder or other cream-based soup will be on the menu. I’ll be spending the day making candles for my altar so a nice soup in the crockpot is a warm & simple reward after all the work!

Last year we had a vegetarian version of “bubble and squeak” with extra butter. I’m thinking potato and corn chowder this year with a custard pie for dessert… and maybe the missus will make us a braided loaf!!

I, too, am planning on making a Cheddar Bacon Potato soup in the trusty old crock pot for our Imbolc celebration. Thinking I’ll throw in some corn, as well, to make it more of a chowder. I’m also making some roasted garlic and rosemary bread to go with it.

I’ve been trying to decide on a dessert, and custard seems to be what most people suggest, but I’m not sure if everyone attending will like custard. (Hubby in particular may prefer something else.) Does anyone have any other suggestions for dessert?

Fish and chips with braided bread.
