I’m giving up my spice mixes today.
1/2 C Garlic powder
2T sea salt
1/4 cup paprika
1/2 cup chili powder
1/4 cup Ground Coriander
1/4 cup onion powder
Optional 2T Cayenne
If you currently use those Packets of Taco mix – this is really very close. Use it to season beans, rice, or the Meat/meat substitute for your tacos. I use it the same way that I would those packets. I don’t just sprinkle it on as is. I mix about 2T with 1 cup of water and mix it in to whatever I’m making. If it’s something like the rice, I use the flavored water to replace 1 cup of the regular water. Voila – Mex flavor.
Breakfast Potato Mix
1/2 C Chili powder
1/4 C Roasted Garlic
1/4 C dried Cilantro
1/4 C dried parsley
1/4 C dried Chives
2T Fine ground Mustard
This mix is good as a final sprinkle on those breakfast potatoes. It’s also good to mix 1T with a 1/2 cup sour cream or soured Kefir to use as a dip for veggies or a spread for “burgers”. I usually add salt and pepper to the final product thus leaving it out of the mix.
1 cup organic Cane sugar
1/2 t nutmeg
As it says, this is good to sprinkle over apples. It’s a good mix for baking but equally good if you just slice up some apples in a bowl and sprinkle this on top.
Then I worked on an old shrug to get it finished but I need to rip. It’s a self designed one and I need to redo the collar, it’s not exactly how I envisioned it. Actually, it’s one of those times that I thought fancy is better than plain and I was wrong. Sometimes plain is just as good. I’ll use the fancy somewhere else. But since it’s in the frog pond, I don’t have any pictures.
I did cast on for 3 new projects though….
I have to make you wait. I need to go shovel out the shop and get a load of shipping done. I hope those of you that are celebrating the New Year tonight, that you are safe and happy.
I raise my tea mug and wish everyone a happy and fiber filled New Year!
