Happy Monday, Foxes!!

I love a good sale. I mean, I really LOVE a good sale. I love that “high” when I stumble on an amazing bargain. It happened to me twice in this past week. On Sunday, I took my boys shopping because my string bean six-year-old needed new pants. I started noticed $2.97 racks all across the JC Penney’s aisles and my heart started pounding with excitement. I asked the cashier if the same type of sales were happening in the women’s department and her response was “Yesssss, girl.” Clearly, she could read my enthusiasm. I walked out of there with $225 worth of clothes for, get this, $19!!!! On top of the sale, I used a 15% coupon off the mobile site. I almost felt embarrassed checking out. That didn’t last long.

The next sale I found was truly a “law of attraction” moment for me. I had been wanting to create a “Kitchen Sink Seasoning” to use in my recipes since so many call for the same type of spices. It’s a big pain to get out the seasonings every time I am making something. Problem was, I didn’t want to use up all my individual bottles to make this seasoning. Lo and behold, I walk into Wal-mart and there in the spice aisle was almost every single seasoning I needed marked down to 50 cents… and, ORGANIC! I literally could not believe my eyes. I made the seasoning for less than five bucks!

To celebrate, I’m sharing this seasoning mix with all of you. You can change this up however you would like, but here is what I put in mine:


1.5 TBSP Onion Powder

1 TBSP Garlic Powder

1/2 TBSP Chili Powder (optional if you are sensitive to heat. I barely notice it.)

1 TBSP Cumin

1 TBSP Sea Salt (You can omit if you don’t like salt, or start with a teaspoon and work up to a TBSP. I love salt.)

1 TBSP Ground Coriander

1 TBSP Paprika

1/2 TBSP Black Pepper

1 TBSP Italian Seasoning

2 TBSP Parsley

Make this recipe your own! I have found that many recipes call for salt, pepper, garlic powder, and powder so I think that is a good base mix to start with. If you don’t like Cumin, for example, then leave it out! I’d love to hear what you put in  your own “Kitchen Sink” seasoning! Let me know in the comments below!

See me using my Kitchen Sink Seasoning in action on this weekly food prep!
