Waldorf Salad

You can put this over lettuce or add chicken strips to make it a complete meal.   It's a great side dish for any meal.

Waldorf Salad 
2 C celery, chopped
3 C apples, chopped and tossed in lime juice
1 c dried fruit (a mixture of cranberries, blueberries and cherries is my fav)
1 C grapes, cut in half (optional)
1 C walnuts

1½ C sour cream
4 T  honey

Mix the sour cream and honey and toss in everything else.  Sprinkle poppy seeds on top. You can also sprinkle with cheese (feta, bleu cheese)

Cajun Seasoning

I recently made a new recipe that called for cajun seasoning.  I didn't have any commercial stuff, so I whipped up my own.
Nothing fancy, Plain Jane basic.

Cajun Seasoning

This recipe makes about ½ cup.

1 T of paprika (over flow that spoon)
1 T garlic powder
1 T onion powder 
3 t oregano
3 t thyme
3 t salt
3 t pepper
2 t cayenne pepper
1 t crushed red pepper flakes.

Stir and Jar.
