Cajun Spice Mixture
A must-have staple ingredient in
located in the Bayou Panhandle
Since this region is known for mouth-watering, sweet and savory meals I prefer to make my spice mixture ahead for many of my recipes for Creole and Cajun dishes. So make it ahead and store them in a see-thru, sealable jar or container.
In a medium bowl add the following 9 spices:
1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp. Cayenne pepper
1 tsp. Onion salt
11/4 tsp. Dried Oregano
11/2 tsp. Cummin
2 tsp. Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
2 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 1/2 tsp. Smoked Paprika
Mix well. Use as needed in recipes. Store in a dry and cool area.

Brain teasers for week of August, 9th, 2021
A man looks at a picture of another man. Then he truthfully says, “Brothers and sisters I have none, but that man’s father is my father’s son.” Who is the man in the picture?
A farmer is trying to cross a river. He is taking with him a rabbit, carrots, and a fox, and he has a small raft. He can only bring 1 item at a time across the river because his raft can only fit either the rabbit, the carrots, or the fox. How does he cross the river? (Assume that the fox does not eat the rabbit if the man is present, and that the fox and the rabbit will not try to escape or run away).
Answers from week of Aug. 2nd 2021
Question #1 -
Let D = number of dollars on the check, and C = number of cents on the check, where D and C are whole numbers.
The amount of the check has a value of 𝐷+𝐶100 dollars. The teller swaps the dollars and cents and gives the woman 𝐶+𝐷100 dollars.
The woman spends 5 cents (5100 𝑑𝑜𝑙𝑙𝑎𝑟𝑠), so she is left with 𝐶+𝐷− 5100 dollars.
That amount of money she has is equal to two times the amount of the check.
Therefore, 𝐶+𝐷− 5100 = 2(𝐷+𝐶100).
100𝐶+𝐷−5 = 200𝐷+2𝐶.
199D = 98C – 5
Intuition is needed to derive the second equation.
We know that the number of cents of the check must be less than 100.
Since the amount that the women received was 5 cents more than twice the amount of the check once the dollars and cents were switched, the number of dollars must be less than 50.
In addition to that, the number of cents must be 1 more than twice the dollar amount.
Therefore, C = 2D + 1
199D = 98(2D +1) – 5
199D = 196D +93
3D = 93
D = 31
C = 2(31) + 1 = 63
The amount of the check was $31.63
Question #2 -
Null Island is the name used to refer to the point on the Earth's surface where the Prime Meridian and the Equator intersect, at zero degrees latitude and zero degrees longitude (0°N 0°E).
