DIY Onion Soup Mix

I woke up this morning thinking I had scheduled this post with no text in the post, only photos and the recipe.  Luckily, I didn’t do that.  I sat down to write a post several times this weekend but time and time again, I just got distracted!

Ice Bucket Challenges, workouts, dinner and dominoes with friends, hanging out in the pool, baking cookies all took priority to writing a post.  Because, sometimes, you just need to enjoy the weekend, right?  However, I am pretty excited to share this recipe: DIY Onion Soup Mix!

I have come to love homemade seasoning mixes like ranch, pumpkin piecajun, taco/chili, etc.  and I use onion soup mix a lot.  But have you looked at the ingredients on those packages?  Yikes!  And they get expensive!  I resolved very quickly to make a homemade version of this savory, salty mix.

So, here it is: amazingly simple, with onion flakes, beef bullion, a couple of seasonings.  And, done.
