Okay folks.  Just in time for the Holidays, the potlucks at work, and the "take something with that you can share even though they will already have everything... cause you need some gluten free guaranteed food.

This is a great idea!  Many of you are trying to find happy and safe ways to survive making family meals.  This blogger [ One Orange Giraffe] comes up with a great recipe for making cream soup stock.  ENJOY!

Cream of "something" soup recipe
1 cup non-fat dried milk
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup bouillon (if you have cubes you have to smash them up)
  You can use whatever kind you like (ie, beef, veggie)
4 Tablespoons freeze dried minced onions (I used the minced onions from Sam's Club)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme (I couldn't find the thyme so I used dried parsley instead)
1 teaspoon pepper
(For the equivalent of one can of condensed cream soup, mix 1/3 cup dry mix with 1 1/4 cup water. Cook until thick)

"Kevin" comments:this would be the recipe to fill a 1 gallon container (I multiplied it by 7 instead of 8 so your 1 gallon container wouldn't be overflowing):

7 cups non-fat dried milk
5 1/4 cups cornstarch
1 3/4 cups boullion
1 3/4 cups freeze dried minced onions
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon pepper
