The feast of the Sabbat is always my favourite aspect! Whether that be ritual wine and cake or the feast that is celebrated between my loved ones and I. I usually spend a few days on the lead up to Samhain baking and cooking, but this year was a little different. Firstly, I am spending the weekend in Glastonbury to celebrate the beginning of the Witches New Year and I am also working during the day leading up to the 31st. So, this year will be a little bit different for me.
I haven’t had as much time as I would like to do some baking this year! I did make some cookies though! They were really quick and easy to do, and came out a treat. I have made several things in the past, including a cake, savoury foods, sweets, buns and other styles of cookies. I’m hoping to host a hallowe’en party next year, so I have a reason to do more baking!
A lot of my snacks this year have been store bought. Which, in all honesty, upsets me a little. I just didn’t have the time to do the normal baking and cooking shenanigans I normally get up to. So along with my homemade cookies, I bought some goodies with a Halloween theme to satisfy my sweet tooth and to munch on during the trip to Glastonbury! Another of my favourite snacks is roasted pumpkin seeds, which I find to be very morish. I have yet to carve my pumpkin- I only have a small one this year- but I use the innards to create pumpkin soup and roast the seeds to snack on. I usually do a batch of both plain and sprinkled with paprika. Depending on which I fancy, I then have a choice!
