POWDERED MILK - - - - REALLY USING IT DAILY
Other good information I have gained, is that. as short as we feel we are financially, we are doing better than we were 25 - 32 years ago. Back then I wouldn't have cut a hot dog up in our omelet this morning and I would have used re-hydrated TVP that had been saute'ed in bacon grease.
I always go looking for new information when I return to using my supplies. It's impossible to have too much information, at least in this department!
Today I am gleaning all I can from this website on EHow.COM . Check it out HERE.
Little Side Note - - I have always mixed my non-instant powdered milk in blender. I bought this little gem to make baby food and other small blending jobs. Since it had a smallish traditional blender top, I sent my big top over to my single daughter and her roomies. Little did I know that this top would allow milk to slosh everywhere! I really don't need any help in the messy dept.
Yesterday I decided to try the way that my mom always blended flour and milk or water for gravy.
I put half the water in a gallon jug, added all the powder needed to make a gallon of milk and shook it for a while. Let it sit to allow any lingering lumps to get soggier. Shook it a little more and its the best blending job I've had. No powder sticking to the sides or lid. Definitely the way to go for me from now on!
