Homemade Fajita Seasoning

School is almost out, the sun is always shining, the garden is planted and the projects just keep on coming. I think everyday we cross one project off of the list and then add 4 more. Anyone else feeling like this?

With so many projects and all of us just wanting to live outside as long as possible our meal variety has been very small. We are on a consistent rotation of mexican, pasta/pizza and grilling out. Mexican seems to be my favorite right now because Simon eats anything that is in the form of a quesadilla.

Two weeks ago after pulling out all of my mexican seasonings for the third time that week I decided that I need to put together a seasoning mix once and for all! Since that lightbulb moment, I think I have saved at least an hour of time in finding and pulling out all the seasonings, sprinkling them in and then cleaning them up. I have used it in our black bean burgers, taco salad, cheese and veggie quesadillas, egg burritos and even made a vegenaise dip with it for french fries. Wow, I think I have to lay off the mexican in our life .... nah!

Work smarter, not harder! 

Now, just to use that motto for all of our lawn clean-up and random projects. Anyone free to help us ... we pay in home brews!!
