This has been a whirlwind morning. A dear friend was lost and found and is in the hospital, with me praying the whole while. He's not out of the woods, yet, but he's alive as of our last alert. The man is like a brother to me and I'm just relieved he's been found.

This past Pennsic, I came up with the idea of altering the old Thanksgiving feast for my purposes and saying thank you to both the Sun (symbolic of God) and the Moon (symbolic of Goddess). Okay, it's not original to me, but I was reluctant to use a Communion or Cakes and Ale rite, being neither a priest in my birth faith or a Wiccan or a Pagan. So, for the Sun Feast, I ate cornbread and drank lemonade and, for the Moon, I had milk and donut holes (what? they were round and white and easily obtained at the camp store!). Now, however, I'm home, low on money, and still want to say thank you.

Do you guys have any ideas for what might be suitable?

:sends good vibes to your friend in the hospital:

Going off of sheer "this sounds like a solar/lunar food!" rather than any real research...

Solar: oranges, any round citrus? Orange juice. Lemonade. Whatever fruit is in season, as it's ripened in the sun.

Lunar: milk? Also, there's a few recipes for "moon cakes" here

Also, if you've got food coloring around and want to whip up some simple sugar icing, you could draw whatever symbols you want on, say, homemade sugar cookies or cake.

I'm so glad your friend was found.

I used to make moon tarts to celebrate the moon. I made a basic short pastry, formed it into mini tarts in a cupcake pan, and filled with a basic baked custard recipe that's egg-heavy (to make the custard nice and golden.

Delicious, easy, and lovely to look at, and a nice size for holding in your hand. I made the pastry, oh, an inch or so deep. I can't remember if I precooked the pastry at all or just baked it with the filling, but I think the later.

You could also do pumpkin filled tarts -- if you use fresh pumpkin it's quite a bit more golden yellow than the orange stuff one buys ready-canned.

For the moon, maybe one of those round Chinese rice ball desserts would be good.
