Head straight on to the Recipe For Salt Alternative Spice Blend ♥

Are you very active on social media? I find I don’t really have the time to invest in all the forms of social media I have available to me. My first commitment work wise is to my paying job. And then I need to spend time on my blog. Part of that includes replying to comments and reading other people’s posts. Then there is instagram which I love, but don’t make enough use of. I seldom find myself on pinterest and only pop in to twitter a few times a day. And then only to check my own notifications. Out of all the social media available to me, I frequent Facebook the most often. I find it a great way to keep up-to-date with my friends and family. My form of interaction is usually limited to clicking the like button!

I love all the new options available so someone can see if I found something funny, or love what they had to say or share. I very seldom comment, preferring to send someone a message via WhatsApp. Recently however, I have felt the need to step away somewhat from my personal Facebook page. I have someone who is watching my every step very closely and I find it a bit creepy. The interaction is just beyond what I consider a normal interest in my life. There is no alternative to Facebook and it is the one form of social media I use a lot, so I find myself facing a bit of a conundrum. Where I did not feel any conundrum was turning Lorraine’s Vadouvan into a Salt Alternative Spice Blend. I am always looking for new ways to spice our food, and this is one full of flavour.
