Kitchen Witch Challenge - Day 2

And as usual, a day late.

2. What Makes a Kitchen Witch?

If you ask the average Pagan, they'd have an answer somewhat like the Pagan/Wiccan host at about.com.

"There's a growing movement within modern Paganism known as kitchen witchery. The kitchen is, after all, the heart and hearth of many modern households. When you have a gathering in your home, where do most of your guests hang out? Why, the kitchen, of course! Also, thanks to a declining economy, many more people are making meals from scratch and the kitchen has once again become a place where people spend hours, rather than minutes."
For me, it's more about mindfulness. Being in tune with what we eat, how we live in our home, and how we live in the world. Cooking with deliberate intent. Cleaning with deliberate intent. Trying to be more green.

I do, however, have a haggy old kitchen witch over my oven that looks very much like the one in the image above.


  1. "Cleaning with deliberate intent." Gulp! My kitchen counters and sink are a mess right now. And I'm farting around on the internet! I should feel guilty (and I kinda do).

    1. Mine too. I didn't say anything about WHEN I do it. It's all about how. And it goes far too long between. :S
