Recipe: Homemade Condensed Soups

Did you have any idea you can make your own condensed soups, like cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, etc.? YOU CAN! I found out about this awhile ago and decided to try it. And I am telling you….the homemade version tastes SO GOOD!

I think I just might be sold. I did this on a weeknight when I needed a can of cream of chicken soup and didn’t have one in the cupboard. No matter…I just whipped up my own! Here is a picture of mine when I was done:

I was making a chicken gravy for Hawaiian Haystacks for dinner that evening. And I will tell you….I have never had gravy that good! It tasted much better than when I use the condensed soup from the store. And healthier too!

1 C. Magic Mix
3/4 C. Chicken Broth (either from a can, bouillion, or liquid from canned chicken)
1 t. Dry Parsley
Dash of Onion Salt

Mix together with wire whisk over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

I found out about this from Everyday Food Storage, a fantastic blog that helps you use your food storage in everyday ways and recipes. If you don’t look at her blog regularly, you should! Crystal even has how-to videos which are VERY helpful! Browse around her site a bit, but here are the direct links to what you need to know in making your own condensed soups.

Condensed Cream of Chicken
Condensed Cream of Mushroom
Condensed Cream of Celery
How to make Magic Mix (used to make the condensed soups)

I know it might sound weird, but try it! I couldn’t believe it myself until I used it. If anything, they will be a bit healthier for you too.

Save Money on Entertainment

Here we are in midst of summer. We have been finding more and more every time we turn around we are spending more money on entertainment or the little extras that add up during summer activities.

Here are a few tips:
Buy the Entertainment Coupon Book. The books are packed with coupons for dining, bowling, gold, amusement parks, attractions and more! If you are going on a vacation consider spending the money to buy the book for the area you are visiting. Right now there is an offer where you can get the 2010 Entertainment Book free if you reserve your 2011 copy.

Are you always the hostess? Make sure when you are inviting people for dinner and BBQs that you ask your guests to help you out. Plan a pot-luck or simply make assignments. You don’t have to pay for everything!

Plan movie nights at home. We have Netflix at our house and we have movie night every week. Did you know that Netflix has an option where you can stream movies through your computer, wii, or Playstation? Pair your movie night with pizza or another family favorite. Your kids will love it! Even if you order a delivery pizza the cost savings compared to paying for theater tickets and snacks can be AMAZING! Another option for movies at home that I just recently discovered is Amazon Movies on Demand, you can either get a Roku box or do what I do and hook my laptop up to my TV and watch it that way.

Pack your food with you. If you are going on a road trip, to the amusement park, or to a ballgame pack your own food with you into a cooler. This way you can take with you food that are not only healthy but that your family will actually eat.
Many cities around the county offer free concerts or movie showings in local parks during the summertime. Take advantage of these activities. To find out about them you can check your city’s website, the chamber of commerce or the local newspaper.

Cancel old subscriptions to magazines you are not reading anymore, lots of these resources are now found online now anyway or even available at the local library. If there is a magazine you really need to have, make sure you are getting the best subscription rate for it. Right now Amazon has some great magazines at great prices.

Have a family game night.

Get outside! Go camping! Go for a walk or a hike. We take our kids out for hikes with a purpose. We have them look for rocks that are a specific shape or color.

Go to the zoo. Of course look for discounts! For my family we bought a 1 year membership to the zoo, just by making 2 trips we had already paid for the membership, so now we are going for free!

Go to area fairs and festivals. Pack your lunch with you of course and go check out the entertainment offered.
Visit your library!!! Most libraries offer summer programs for kids and families. Storytime, puppet shows and more! Check out books and movies there too!!

Dry Erase Workbooks

I saw this idea somewhere in blogland awhile ago. I don’t remember where. But I love it!

Workbooks for kids can get much more use than they do. Instead of letting your kids do all the pages and then it’s done, you put all the pages of the workbook into page protectors. Then put the pages into a binder. The kids can use dry erase markers on the page protectors, then wipe off! You can use your workbook pages again and again! Isn’t it a great idea? One more way to use those sheet protectors from Costco (a box of 250 is around $12).

It works for me! It’s also fun for the kids. My 4 year old loves it.

My older boys love it too. I also do this with The Friend magazine and puzzle books for them (sudoku, word games, hidden pictures, crossword puzzles, etc) and it makes it more fun.
