{harvest} Pomp & Circumstance

The first cucumber and first tomato of the season are a big deal.
When they come on the same day, though -
Time for a huge party.
{thank you God for providing for us through our garden!}

This is how he sleeps

Perhaps the only one in the house who truly knows the meaning of sweet sleep.
What a dog boy.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

I've finally mastered our family's favorite combination of spices for our famous Taco Tuesdays, observed weekly in our home. :-)  From our pantry to yours, here's our Taco Seasoning recipe.

{  Taco Seasoning  }

2 Tablespoons each: Chopped dried onion, Oregano and Garlic Salt

1 Tablespoon each: Granulated onion, Chili Powder, Granulated garlic and Cumin

1/2 Tablespoon: Paprika

*Dump into a glass jar, mix thoroughly and use at will with your favorite taco recipe.  I usually quadruple the recipe and it will last me a few weeks.  I add about 2/3 cup to 4#s of taco filling {meat and beans}.  Some days we feel like more, some days less.  It's very forgiving.

Let me know if you try it and how you like it!  Adios!!

Little Dream Farm, little dream farm...

Wherefore art thou little dream farm?
Won't you be mine?
{We drove by this lovely little corner of the country last night and I had to take a picture for the dream file.  Someday, someday...}
