Make Valentines Day ~ Engagement Day ~

Ever feel like this photo. Like no mater who well suited you are together he keeps running in the opposite direction. My advice is let him. He isn't the right one. But if you still want him he is a wonderful way to get him to pop the question.It all starts with Engagement chicken. This is complete with table setting and spells to make your dream come true.

Engagement Chicken

First comes chicken, then comes marriage? Be skeptical if you must, but this recipe may be charmed. It all began 26 years ago, when then-Glamour fashion editor Kim Bonnell gave the recipe to her assistant, Kathy Suder, who made the chicken for her boyfriend, who, a month later, asked her to marry him.. When Bonnell heard that her recipe had inspired three weddings, she dubbed it Engagement Chicken. Try the recipe, give it to a friend—oh, and let us know when it works!
Cook time: 1 Hr 20 Min  Prep time: 15 Min  Serves: 2-4

1 whole chicken (approximately 4 pounds)
1/2 c lemon juice
3 whole lemons -including 1 sliced for garnish
1 Tbsp kosher or sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 fresh herbs for garnish (4 rosemary sprigs, 4 sage sprigs,8 thyme sprigs and one bunch fresh parsley) optional can vary herbs and amounts.

Position an oven rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat the oven to 400°F.
Remove the giblets from the chicken, wash the chicken inside and out with cold water, then let the chicken drain, cavity down, in a colander for 2 minutes.
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Place the chicken breast-side down in a medium roasting pan fitted with a rack and pour the lemon juice all over the chicken, both inside and out. Season the chicken all over with salt and pepper inside and out.
 Prick 2 whole lemons three times each in three different places with a fork and place them deep inside the cavity. Chicken cavity size may vary, so if one lemon is partly sticking out, that’s fine. (Tip: If the lemons are stiff, roll them on the countertop with your palm before pricking to get the juices flowing.)
 Put the chicken in the oven, lower the oven temperature to 350°F, and roast, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
 Remove the roasting pan from the oven. Using tongs or two wooden spoons, turn the chicken breast- side up. Insert a meat thermometer in the thigh, and return the chicken to the oven and roast for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the meat thermometer reads 180°F and the juices run clear when the thigh is pricked with a fork. Continue roasting if necessary. Keep in mind that cooking times in different ovens vary; roasting a chicken at 350°F takes approximately 18-20 minutes per pound, plus an additional 15 minutes.

Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving. And here’s the secret: Pour the juices from the roasting pan on top of the sliced chicken— this is the “marry me juice.” Garnish with fresh herbs and lemon slices.

Note: it works on a man or woman so men what want that little lady to commit start your ovens.

The Magick behind this recipe is

Lemon is used to clear negativity, used in love spells, it in-tunes your energies together, ensures fidelity and excites love in a relationship.

Sage drives away disturbances and lifts the spirit above the mundane. It is also a used in manifesting wish spells.

Thyme cleanses past ills and sorrows. It is used to combat fears and enable you to courageously over come past trouble. It also make a woman irresistible if you wear it in your hair.

Parsley when eaten excites lust and fertility, stops contamination of anything including a relationship. But tear it and never cut it as cutting it ends love.

Salt in this case is used to cleanse the environment in with your relationship has found its self in in order to create a new beginning.

Pepper is used to both banish unwanted rivals and to stop jealous thoughts.

Chicken it's self carries a chemical that makes you relax and want to fall asleep. This euphoric type felling is not unlike a trusting relationship which further makes him feel secure in the relationship.

But before you start cooking get your game plan in order

* Setting the table 

place the plates across from each other and in the center place the  candles with the flowers in between. you will need 1 red candle, 1 white candle 1 cup salt, 1 teaspoon sugar, red food coloring, candy hearts .

Now in a bowl add 1 cup salt, a teaspoon of sugar and a bit of red food coloring. mix it be stirring it counter clockwise to dis-spell negativity.  until it is all one color. place that in a baggie while saying. 

with negativity gone only love remains.

Then cut a small hole in the baggie so a small stream of salt mix can escape.

then draw a heart  around each candle with the big end towards you and the point towards them. As you do this say:

My heart is full my actions pure,
I am sending all my love to you.

Then scatter candy hearts about the tables center but not touching the salt.

 When you sit think back at your intentions to renew the action and manifest it faster. And can I say
Congratulations I hope you two will be very happy. My daughters wedding with her brother and my hubby by her side.
