There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Italian seasoning

It is Thursday already? 8 Muddy Boots Mister Linkys from scratch time!

What did I make from scratch this week....

Honey wheat bread, chicken and noddles (add your own meat for the meat eaters in the house) made with a great product called Better than Bouillon and my homemade stock from the freezer, and devil eggs.....

But my daughter made cheese lasagna for her grandfathers birthday Saturday. With meat sauce for the meat eaters....

So we ran low on the Italian seasoning that she used for the sauce... I made this to replace:

Italian seasoning
1 1/2 tbsp. dried oregano leaves

1 tbsp. dried parsley flakes
1/2 tbsp. dried marjoram
1/4 tbsp. dried basil

2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
1/2  tsp. coarsely ground pepper

 Mix all ingredients well. Store in old spice jar.  Label.
