Prompt #27:

I do not wish to expiate, but to live. My life is for itself and not for a spectacle. I much prefer that it should be of a lower strain, so it be genuine and equal, than that it should be glittering and unsteady. I wish it to be sound and sweet, and not to need diet and bleeding. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sarah’s Magic Heart Sauce

2 cups ocean tide at twilight

1/2 cup of the sound of kisses, in liquid form (available at specialty stores)

4 Tb stardust

2 Tb squelchy mud

1 t  crushed marigold

1 t baby shampoo

1 t  pure maple syrup

1 t first rain

1/2 t fresh rosemary

1/2 t finely minced candy canes

A sprinkle of moonlight and rose petals to taste

Directions: Combine the squelchy mud and the stardust over medium low heat to make a roux. Cook, stirring constantly, for a few minutes, until the stardust no longer tastes raw. Slowly pour in the ocean tide, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Continue whisking, and add the liquid kisses. Stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat until mixture begins to coat the back of the spoon. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until thickened.
