8/12/08 Seasoning Mixes

I have been so busy that we have had major leftovers from the stuffed peppers and the meatloaf!! I cannot believe how many days that feeds us. Not to forget that we had VBS and a cookout and camping. Oh how busy! So, for the agenda today I will give you a new recipe because I haven't cooked in a week or so!

Here are some seasoning mixes that I use as substitutes for the packet stuff you can get in the store (example is the meatloaf that used the packet of onion soup mix. You can use this instead)... with out all the sodium!

The Menu:
Onion Soup Mix
Ranch Seasoning Mix
Italian Dressing Mix
Taco Seasoning Mix
