My girls are not the most adventurous eaters, but they do enjoy smelling all the different spices when I’m cooking. Earlier this summer, we spent a fun afternoon mixing up some special homemade seasoning blends for my dad.
I printed two recipes for the girls to read and follow. This was pretty much a hands-off activity for me – I did have to grind a few spices in the coffee grinder. The girls were in charge of reading the spice labels, measuring the correct amount, and stirring. They loved it all!
We packaged our seasoning mixes in glass jars and included laminated recipe cards so my dad can remake the mixes when he runs out.
Here are the seasoning mix recipes we used – they are both delicious!
- Italian Seasoning :: Angela’s Kitchen
- Low-Sodium Seasoning Blend :: AllRecipes.com (similar to seasoned salt)
We’re looking forward to making more seasoning blends for ourselves and to give as gifts.
