And I made an apple pie.
Apples + squash = good harvest food, right?
Mabon is a time of giving thanks for the harvest, and for all our blessings. I had grand intentions of doing something with writing things we were grateful for, and maybe putting them in the fire to carry our gratitude heavenward in the smoke...
But then we got a phone call from some neighbors who had extra caribou and asked if we wanted some. We said sure. So they brought it over (and the rest of our plans got put aside for processing the meat).
It was about 4 whole caribou (that piece of cardboard the quarters are laying on is about the size of a door...)
We butchered about 2 1/2 of them and passed the rest along to someone else. ☺

yes of course we shared with them
