I don't know what in the world I might have done, but I sure feel like I have wrestled a couple of midgets for 9 rounds! I'm sure it must feel sort of like this. I think I slept "crooked" or something. A bit uncomfortable actually but it should be better soon!
Mushroom showed me how to make a wonderful honey wheat bread today. Unfortunately I didn't take notes... so I will have to share the recipe with you when I can get her to write it down for me. She is slowly but surely weaning me off my bread machine. One thing I do know is that it sure does smell good around here right now.
I was looking through some old files yesterday and found a couple of recipes for some DIY mixes. These just might come in handy one day when I don't have the originals to fall back on. Anyway, I thought I would post them here in case anyone might also find themselves needing a DIY mix of some sort!
I think I may have posted this one before but it is a really good copycat version of Lipton's Onion Soup Mix. I love that stuff. Especially when I'm making a roast! It is also good when you whip it up as an Onion Dip!

4 teaspoons onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed celery seed

Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container.
About 5 tablespoons of mix are equal to 1 1¼-ounce package.
***** To make onion dip: Mix 5 tablespoons with one pint of sour cream.
