“My trainers told me that a healer should always carry tea with him.”
“You say ‘trainers.’ Doesn’t a ’ealer usually only ’ave one trainer?”
“Yes, but I was fortunate to learn from the best two healers in the area. One was an herbalist; she worked as a healer, although she never claimed to be one. The healer proper was a rider. It was under her tutelage that I learned to heal not just the body but the mind as well. She heals dragons. Unfortunately, I can only heal my own dragon.” ~Dragon Rider Kyn and Shylah in Dragon’s Revenge
I was interviewed on Renee Scattergood’s blog. Be sure to check it out.
A Dragon Rider Healer:
“I am a healer. I see past what people want to show. I can heal the deeper hurts that most healers cannot touch. I wish to help you. To do that, you will have to sleep. I can seal those dreams away from you. Will you trust me?” Kyn asked, handing him some tea.
“The meal is all but ready,” Serena greeted him after a kiss. “Go wash up, and it will be ready when you return.”
“Yes, ma’am,” Kyn joked with his tall, blonde wife. “It smells good.”
“Sandwiches of fried pork with lettuce and tomatoes on toasted bread.”
“My favorite,” Kyn replied.
“I know. So go wash up so you can enjoy it while the pork is still warm.”
Fried Pork Strip Sandwiches with Tomato and Lettuce–mid-day meal of dragon riders
5 Fried Pork Strips (known as bacon in our world)
2 pieces of bread, toasted
2 slices of tomato
leaf of lettuce
1 tsp Mayonase
- Fry the pork either in broiler or pan until crispy. Drain on paper towel.
- Toast bread. Spread a thin layer of mayonase over the toast.
- Place the tomato slice on the toast. Then add the pork and lettuce. Close the sandwich with the last piece of toast.
- Enjoy on a hot day with a cup of tea.
My favorite tea is a blend of leaves I find myself in Phillipi Canyon. You may be able to find them as well. Mix and match to make your favorite flavor. A sprig is a branch or twig of the plant.
4 sprigs of Mint leaves
2 Lemongrass leaves
1 small sprig of Rosemary
1 small sprig of Thyme
- Heat water to almost boiling.
- Add leaves to a tea ball or basket. Place the basket in your favorite mug.
- Pour almost boiling water over the leaves. Cover and steep for 3 minutes.
- Remove cover and basket. Add honey to taste.
