3 Comments

Here’s the recipe, which sounds delicious!  We’re going to go through the ingredients and see just what kind of magick can be found in this simple popular dish:

Food 2


Makes 4 servings

8 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 pinch paprika

Directions:

1.  Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain.
2.  In a saucepan, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Stir in enough flour to make a roux. Add milk to roux slowly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheeses, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick. Put macaroni in large casserole dish, and pour sauce over macaroni. Stir well.
3.  Melt butter or margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and brown. Spread over the macaroni and cheese to cover. Sprinkle with a little paprika.
4.  Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Serve.

The Magick:

Paprika…Use to add energy to any spell or mixture.  Throw in someone’s yard to cause them problems.
Also Called: African Pepper, Bird Pepper, Chili Pepper, Goat’s Pod, Grains of Paradise, Red Pepper, Sweet Pepper, Tabasco Pepper, Zanzibar Pepper, Capsicu

Wheat (found in the bread crumbs & the macaroni)…Induces fertility and conception, attracts money

Salt (if you add a dash)…Cleansing, purification, exorcism

The Divine Connection:

Wheat is a grain associated with the goddess Demeter:

“DEMETER was the great Olympian goddess of agriculture, grain, and bread, the prime sustenance of mankind. She also presided over the foremost of the Mystery Cults which promised its initiates the path to a blessed afterlife. Demeter was depicted as a mature woman, often crowned and holding sheaves of wheat and a torch…”  For more info– lots more, click Here

  1. I never knew the simple mac & cheese could be so magical! I’ll think more closely about my food ingredients from now on. I wanted to add that Freyr is also associated with grain and the harvest.

  2. Cool! (goddesses of the harvest, love it!)– If you have more information on Freyr, or if you have a link to more info on this goddess, feel free to post it here.

    • A personal note: I have a special infinity for Demeter and Persephone, the mother who would go to hell and back for her daughter, because I’ve had issues in my life with my own mother– there seems to be a lot of women who do, it’s not uncommon. (I see another blog post coming on….)
