1 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. each ground cumin, garlic powder, paprika, powdered oregano and sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Makes 3 tablespoons of seasoning mix, which is equal in strength to a 1/4 ounce package of commercial seasoning mix.

Bit by bit

I do seem to be getting better. Haven’t slept at all today, which is more than I can say for any day in the last few. Thinking back I think this started last Tuesday but the sleeping most of the day didn’t start till Saturday. Back still hurts, and with that and the pinched nerves the gut is quite painful if I move except when the back is in a certain position, then all is ok. I think the fever is gone and I seem to be doing better with the bug so hopefully all is on the mend.

Hoping to get over to the yard sale trailer tomorrow and start working on things in there again.

Got out this afternoon and cooked a couple of shoulder roasts (beef) in the dutch oven (12″) Turned them several times about a half hour apart and cooked them for almost 2 hours. Quite tasty and tender though a bit dry. Will soak them at least overnight if not for 24 hours next time and see if that takes care of it.

Am going to look for a book to read for a while and then hit the sack. Till tomorrow…
