Happy Birthday, Kenton!

Today is my beloveds 37th birthday. I can’t believe it. I met this wonderful man back when he was 19 years old. How has 18 years gone by already?
*
We had little family celebration tonight. I made Kenton’s favorite dinner….fried cubed steak, macaroni and cheese, lima beans (not his fave but we needed a veggie), and homemade biscuits. We followed dinner with buttermilk pie and gifts.

Happy birthday, hon!
I love you!

Angie at Thrifty Florida Mama is hosting “Make It Yourself Monday” I thought I’d share our homemade Taco seasoning. We love to have tacos and several times I found I didn’t have one of those taco seasoning packets on hand when I wanted to fix tacos for dinner. I decided to see if I could find a recipe to make my own seasoning. I always have these spices on hand so it’s easy to whip up tacos whenever we want!

1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (we omit this due to little ones sensitive tongues)
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

In as small bowl, mix together all ingredients. Store in an air tight container. To use: add 3 tablespoons and 2/3 cup of water to 1 lb. cooked and drained ground beef. Simmer about 10 minutes.

I’m lost on what to fix for dinner. I’ve got food, I just don’t know what to fix, so I’m asking for your help. I’m going to tell you the meat I have in the freezer and I want to know what you would fix with it. Here are the types of meat I have in my freezer.

What would you fix with…

ground chicken?

chicken leg quarters?

ground beef?

chicken thighs?

pork chops?

ground turkey?
