TO MAKE YOUR OWN FAJITA SEASONING AT HOME: Whisk together all ingredients and use to season your onions, peppers and portobellos. Save any remaining spices in an airtight jar.
FOR THE FAJITA BOWL, prep all ingredients ahead saving the grilling of the portobello for last. Slice it and assemble the bowl. Serve with desired sides.
TO TRANSFORM YOUR LEFTOVERS INTO FAJITA NACHOS: layer the nachos with cheese, the fajita bowl ingredients and toppings. Microwave or oven-bake until the cheese is melted.
TO MAKE HOMEMADE PINEAPPLE LEMONADE: FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP: Heat 1 C Sugar and 1 C Water until the sugar is dissolved. GRILL, THEN JUICE 6 halved lemons AND 1 small pineapple. Add the simple syrup, grilled lemon and pineapple juice and 4 C cold water and some ice cubes to a large pitcher. Add a few lemon halves for garnish.
TO MAKE THE PINEAPPLE LEMON SORBET: Simply pour the Pineapple Lemonade into a glass loaf pan or bowl and freeze until you are able to scoop. Thaw slightly before scooping if freezing overnight or longer.
TO MAKE THE WATERMELON SLUSHIE: Place 4 c watermelon and about 10 ice cubes into a blender. Pour in 1/4 C lemon juice, 1/3 C sugar, and pinch of salt. Blend until smooth. TO MAKE IT A "FIZZ", add carbonated water just before serving.
JUST A LITTLE CHEF's NOTE: I grow all of my own herbs, parsley, mint, thyme, rosemary, etc. It's a great money-saver! :)
