The temperature is so cold today that it is a perfect day to stay inside. I like to take advantage of these kind of days to mix up some spice blends that I will use year round. One of my favorites is a fajita seasoning mix from a recipe that I found on the internet years ago. I have been making it ever since. The combination of spices and the addition of cornstarch make great flavor and it thickens up sauces when used on both meats and vegetables. I now provide jars of this seasoning to my extended family as well! You can be assured that they let me know when their jars are getting empty! There are many combinations of spices that can be put together, but here is the recipe that I use.
