|What is a can of "cream of celery soup" if not celery gravy?|
From then on, I've been making my own "cream of" soups. Don't think it hasn't been a struggle. What could be easier than opening a can of condensed soup to get supper on the table asap?
|Chicken Asparagus Casserole|
May not look like much now that it's gotten cool, but we liked it.
One chicken breast and one leg made enough casserole for two meals.
- If I believe in Pollan's essential message that home cooking like our great grandma's served up is the basis for good health, why buy canned soup?
- If I am sincere in my desire to reduce my packaging waste, why buy canned soup?
- If I truly believe that small economies add up to a better standard of living for my family, why buy canned soup?
Still buying it: Sweetened Condensed Milk
|Sweetened Condensed Milk experiment I was so hopeful about!|
I made some cherry ice cream the other day and not having any sweetened condensed milk, I dug out my Aunt M's mock recipe I'd been meaning to try. Not "tasting as you go along"...BIG mistake!
What a waste of precious, hand-picked cherries...my cherry ice cream tastes like powdered milk. UGH!
Anyone have a sweetened condensed milk recipe that doesn't include powdered milk? Am I the only weird one that doesn't like to taste as I cook? (I only taste at the finish line and adjust seasonings then.)
And if you've got one, feel free to share your experiment gone wrong!
