Fast Day 64 total = 449c

And the recipe for the ‘cream of’ soup mix is as follows:

  • 4 cups non-fat powdered milk = 460g = 1656c
  • 1.5 cups cornflour = 200g = 712c
  • 1/2 cup veggie stock = 100g = 254c
  • 4 tableS dried onion flakes = 40g = 0
  • 2 teaS dried thyme = 2g = 0c
  • 2 teaS dried basil = 2g = 0c
  • 1 teaS pepper = 2g = 0c

806g = 2622c

1g = 3.25c

Use 1/3 cup (90g = 292c) to 1.25 cups water.

2/3 cup = 180g = 585c.

When a recipe calls for a cream of soup can, or evaporated milk, you can substitute this mix instead.  Typically I use 2/3 cup powder (and the 2.5 cup water) to replace a can, as 1/3 cup doesn’t ever seem like enough liquid- the cornflour thickens it up a lot.  You could just add more water instead of you’d prefer that to using 2/3 cup powder!  This is very handy to have in the cupboard as the base for a sauce if you don’t seem to have much else- make it Thai or creamy Indian by adding curry paste, add peanut butter with a bit of sweet chilli too, to make it satay (did that the other week- yum!!)- it’s versatile!  Ha, or even have it as a plain old cup-a-soup minus all the nasties! 🙂

This Fast Day was alright, wasn’t very hungry, think cos I probably ate too much at the weekend.  Went swimming, but didn’t get a lot of swimming done as kids were playing in the swimming lanes which was really annoying!

Have to cook some food for tomorrow in a minute- that might be hard cos it’s gonna be cajun chicken n okra and it’s gonna be tasty- will be hard not to eat any want to eat some now!!  It was meant to go in some paella, the chicken, but the creamy pasta made more dinners worth than I was expecting, and it wouldn’t keep long enough to go in the paella, so tomorrow for lunch it is- don’t usually have meat for lunch, almost seems extravagant! 😛
