Christmas on the cheap Yummy Herb Mix

Yummy Herb Mix

1/3 cup dry milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried dill weed
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper

Add all ingredients in a one cup jar with lid-shake well.  Makes 2/3 cup mix.  Add instructions.

Instructions:Combine 4 tablespoons of herb mix with 6 tablespoons of flour.  Coat 2-3 pounds of chicken, brown chicken in 2 tablespoons of oil for 15 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.  To add an extra zest add 2 tablespoons of herb mix to mashed potatoes.  Or add 2 tablespoons of herb mix to chopped potatoes to bake in the oven.  Possibilities are endless.

This recipe is the most frugal gift ever. All these spices can be found in the bulk section for cheap.  This mix would look perfect in a small mason jar. Get creative and look for unique containers in thrift stores.
