Yesterday my dinner was that crab dip from yesterday's blog.

I used not just the Mrs. Dash Spicy Salt Free (black pepper, sweet chili pepper, cayenne pepper, celery seed, cumin, oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme,  coriander, mustard, rosemary, onion, garlic, tomato, paprika, citrus acid, orange peel, and oil of lemon) I also added in some Taco Seasoning (pimento chili pepper, cumin, oregano, red pepper, onion, citric acid) and some Kirkland Rustic Tuscan Seasoning, the I LOVE (garlic, sea salt, rosemary, basil, black pepper, oregano, red pepper, red & green bell peppers, lemon peel, and green onion) 

I chopped the immitation crab small, added the mayo and spices and chopped up some fresh chives. Mix well, refrigerate.
So................ served it up along with some celery and some Fritos Scoops and some mashed avocado with tomato.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
