Frey is described as being handsome, powerful, merciful and kind. Fitting considered he was - let’s be frank - the God of sex. His cult included songs and actions which shocked contemporary and later Christians, who condemned them as indecent, which they of course were not to the participants in the cult themselves.
Frey lived in Alfheim, "Elf-home", a name which indicates a possible connection between Vanir and Elves. His servant was the Goddess Beyla, who was all about bees and dairy. Not to far off, I think, as "Milk and Honey" and the things that Frey stands for are equally sweet.

The great King, whose quest would see success only while he remained above his human imperfections. Unfortunately, that would not last.
I have always been interested in the Arthurian legends. As I wrote, I recently read the Camulod Chronicles by Jack Whyte which were some of the best books on the legends I have ever read.
Tonight I am cooking the turkey breast and we are planning to have Indian Style Cauliflower with it. We have eaten this before and its delicious. It goes well with poultry too.
Indian Style Cauliflower
1 large onion quartered and sliced
1/2 C chicken stock
2 Tbs chutney or apricot preserves
2 tsp Dijon mustard
3/4 tsp dried basil, crumbled
3/4 tsp each ground ginger and cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp each ground cinnamon and curry powder
1 medium sized head of cauliflower, cored and broken into florets
1 C frozen gren peas
1 Tbs cornstarch dissolved in 2 Tbs water
2 Tbs white wine vinegar or cider vinegar
6 drops hot red pepper sauce
In a 10 inch nonstick skillet, combine the onion, stock, chutney, mustard, basil, ginger, cumin, salt, cinnamon and curry powder. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered for 6 minutes. Add the cauliflower and cook, covered, for 5 minutes over moderately low heat. Add the peas, cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes more or until the cauliflower is crisp tender. Stir in the cornstarch mixture, vinegar and red pepper sauce and cook for 1 minute or until the sauce has thickened. Serve hot or at room temperature. Serves 4 to 6.
Have a great day.
