Friday recipe - mix

Cream soup base,    Cream of xxx soup is running well  over a dollar on sale.    this is much cheaper and doesn't take much more time than opening a can and you aren't eating things you can't pronounce.

Pick amtome when you can get butter for 2.00.  You can't substitute fake or margarine for this, it doesn't work. Store in the fridge for 2-3 months or freeze.  I make small batches.   

White sauce mix there are several variations out there.   Some Use cornstarch.   

4 cups dry milk ( not instant ) 
1 cup flour 
2 sticks butter. 

Cut butter into the dry mixture.   You can use a pastry cutter or your mixer with the wisk attachment. 

Basic white sauce for,white,sauce, add cheese for Mac and cheese etc.   

2/3 cup mix 
1 cup water 

Cook until thick over medium heat stirring with wisk.   

Thick cream soup ( condensed) 
3/4 cup water 
1 tsp better than boullion 
1 cup mix.  

Stir until thick, cooking over medium high heat.   
Add seasonings of choice about a 1/2 tsp each 
Garlic powder 
Onion powder 
Salt and pepper 

Chocolate pudding 

1 cup mix 
1/2 cup sugar
3 T cocoa 
1 cups water 

Measure ingredients in order and wisk on medium heat until combined.   Turn heat up and bring to boil.   Boil about 20 SECONDS until thick,  cover and chill.  

I have a different version that is low sodium and low fat.   
Another day, another dollar.
