Thanks! No, there are no spices/pack w/ it, just instructions on cooking. They got shoved to the back of a cupboard, but it was on an inside wall so I'd think that the temperature would be fairly constant.
I will give them a try. We got this mix at Christmas last year, my mom buys this from a group who sells this mix as a fundraiser. When we got a new bag this year, I had this moment of "wait a minute..." where I remembered getting this last year but I didn't think we'd ever used it.
Then, I was just digging for something earlier and found them today.
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed
door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
Helen Keller (1880–1968)
