Mabon is the time of the second harvest. The lands fertility is waning as the Goddess enters the Crone aspect of the Triple Goddess. This is the time to give thanks to the grain God and Goddess. The foods at the time are grain based especially corn. It is time to honour the corn Goddess Demeter and the Mesopotamian goddesses such as Ashnan, Nissaba, and Ninbarshegunu. The God that tends to be worshipped at this time is Thor and the Green Man. Corn, beans and squash are the foods that are associated at this time. This can be turned into a nice bacon and corn chowder, or for the vegetarians corn, bean and squash stew. A home made loaf would not only be nice to dunk into these dishes but would make an appropriate offering to the Gods. Local or even home brew beer would be a great drink to accompany this ritual.
