>Making your own cream of (whatever) soups- simple, quick and CHEAP

>Not to mention, you control what goes IN!!
I managed to NOT have cream of celery soup in the house on Thanksgiving- and in our family, what is Thanksgiving dinner without green bean casserole?  RIGHT?  So…in a panic, I ran to my laptop (hey, I’m a blogger,  forget cookbooks…haha)

What I found, was the magic I was looking for, and magic that’s changed my life.  No more buying canned cream of anything for me, making it takes about 1 minute longer than opening the can and emptying it so we’re permanently switched.


Make your Own “Cream of …” Soup

Whether you want to control the chemicals or the fat, making your own white sauce and flavoring it is cheaper and better for you than those canned cream of whatever soups.

2 Tbs butter

2 Tbs flour

1/4 tsp salt (optional)

1 cup milk

In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter. Sprinkle the flour over it and stir to incorporate. Cook over medium low heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Slowly whisk in the milk.

Isn’t that beautiful?  AND SIMPLE?

The recipe is from Cheap Cooking and I think I may need to spend a great deal of time on that site.
