Mom's Day ~ Dee ~ Conrad & Laura ~ Dry Onion Soup & Taco Seasoning ~ Fudge? Mmmmmm

Good 49º clear sunny morning. Hit 90º yesterday. Tough working in the yard.....very high humidity!

The sprayer has a major problem with the pressure gauge, etc. Going to pick up a new motor-whatever at the Grange today and take it to Dave to install. The sprayer is probably at least 12-13 years old, so in need. Will get my weed spraying done one of these days! In the mean time, pulling weeds and hand spraying. UGH.

My Mom. Happy Mother's Day. I love and miss you so much!

Make your own Dry Onion Soup Mix and Taco Seasoning and store in small mason jars....This is soooo much HEALTHIER than those you buy at the store!! They contain a TON of stuff that is not good for you!!


Make your own Taco Seasoning:
... 1/2 cup chili powder
1/4 cup onion powder
1/8 cup ground cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon sea salt
Put ingredients into a jar and shake. Sprinkle on ground beef while cooking (or ground chicken, turkey, pork.....)

Make your own Dry Onion Soup Mix:
2/3 cup dried, minced onion
3 teaspoons parsley flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Mix all ingredients in a jar, then give the jar a good shake. I'd recommend shaking the jar to mix the ingredients well before each use.
Use 4 tablespoons in a recipe in place of 1 packet of onion soup mix. Store this in a dry, cool place.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Going to Brian and Jen's for brunch. Ciao.
