I fully intended to cook a meal when I got home from work tonight. I had all my spices lined up on the counter, my adaption and the cookbook it was adapted from were right next to the spices, ready for reference.
What I didn’t expect when I got home is being so tired all I wanted to do is go to bed. Instead of making Rogan Josh like I planned, I made a big bowl of buttered popcorn sprinkled with the dry ranch seasoning I made earlier in the week.
When mixed with mayonnaise the seasoning blend makes an awesome ranch dressing. Without the mayonnaise the ranch seasoning blend doesn’t taste much like ranch dressing but still makes an awesome seasoing blend for other things, like popcorn. I will be experimenting with ranch seasoing blend in some of my other recipes that call for it see how they turn out. I will post them here if they do.
