Good Monday morning and happy November, everyone!  Wait a minute…it’s November?   It is so hard to believe that it is holiday time again!  Where did my summer go?  Oh, well, maybe we will have an Indian summer.  Maybe, please?

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween.  We had a great time with all of our trick-or-treaters and I think Ellie enjoyed it as much as any of us.  She loved all of the extra attention she got from the kiddoes and they loved to love on her.

This is a busy work week for me and I desperately need to go to the grocery, so this week’s menu is full of simple, old favorites except for the bubble up apple pie.  That was supposed to get made last week, but I had promised to make C an Oreo pie sometime, so I made that instead. Have a great week!

Homemade Taco Seasoning

We love all things taco around here and I always seemed to be running low on taco seasoning.  While browsing Pinterest one day, I found this recipe for homemade taco seasoning and it is delicious.  No more running out for me! 

The recipe below makes enough for one pound of taco meat, but I like to mix up several batches of the seasoning and store it in a glass jar in the pantry. 

The original recipe is at Chef Mommy and the only change I made was to make it salt-free.  Believe me, you don’t even miss the salt with all of the other great flavors.

1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all of the above ingredients together and add to one pound of cooked ground beef or turkey with one cup of water.  Stir and cook until thickened.  The jar above has about 3 batches of the recipe.
