As today is a day of remembering those who serve in the military, especially those who have lost their lives, today's food is rosemary. Rosemary is an herb of protection, healing, love, and remembrance.
If you're grilling today, as many may, add some rosemary to your food. Whip up a batch of shortbread with rosemary (you can use the prosperity shortbread recipe and substitute 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemary for the pecans, cinnamon, and sesame seeds), or some sugar cookies with rosemary in them, as you would do at Samhain.
May we never forget those who have fallen. Whatever their reason for serving, we honor their memories and their service.
