Poultry seasoning

Some time ago I was frustrated with the fact that I could not seem to remember to buy  poultry seasoning when I was at the store.  Every time I reached for it I would realize that I forgot to get it. Again.  Eventually it dawned on me that I could make my own!  I had all the herbs and spices on hand, but I needed some help with the balance.  After some internet searching, this is the blend that seemed right to me.
Poultry Seasoning Mix

    * 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
    * 1 tablespoon dried sage
    * 1 tablespoon dried thyme
    * 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
    * 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
    * 1 tablespoon dried marjoram
    * 3/4 teaspoon ground pepper

Blend and store in a jar.  Use wherever a recipe calls for poultry seasoning or when you want a meal reminiscent of Thanksgiving.
