Mixing powdered milk.

I have had a hard time getting the husband to adjust to powdered milk but then I found that I was mixing it all wrong.  I watched a great youtube video and remembered this is exactly how Mom made it back when I was a child in the 60's.  So, I decided to add 1 tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla and put it in the fridge overnight.  Then I mixed that with about 2 or 3 quarts of regular milk.  This has really helped to make our milk last longer.

The grandson loves it when I mix it with nestle quik, daughter loves it with cereal, and I've used it for both baking and making yogurt with it this week.  I still have a problem with the husband sticking his nose between his eyebrows when he drinks it, so he just drinks the regular milk. I think he just has too many bad memories ha ha. 

It's  really helping extend our milk and keeping us out of the store.  We need to flatten the curve! 

Did you get this book? 

I wanted to bring this book to your attention again today in case you didn't get this book downloaded yesterday.  I started reading it last night and it's a gem!  So many helpful hints that we can still use today.

Hi, I got the book,thanks. Will be a good distraction today. We use powdered milk here also. I hadn't heard of the adding vanilla and sugar,will try that today.
There are so many ways to use it. I used to make buttermilk with it. If I remember correctly you might need a cup of the actual stuff for a starter. It's certainly a trying time for our Country is going thru. Here, We are allowed to go out for food, Dr. and meds or essential work only. Only one person per cart in the store, leave family at home. It's very surreal. Have a wonderful day. Patricia B

vanilla and sugar does the trick for the powdered milk. Yes I could make buttermilk too..thanks! I use 1 tbsp of vinegar to one cup of milk and let it sit for 5 minutes and it makes buttermilk.
This world is like a horror movie at times.
They tell us one person too but we are trying our best to stay home. we might have to eventually but the longer we can stay out of the store the better.

Thanks for the tips on making powdered milk taste better. My husband sounds like yours, and I don't think my kids have ever drank powdered milk. I mostly use it for making bread in the bread machine.
Have a good day.


God bless you and all you do!

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Kathy that sounds like a great idea. I'll be sure to do that. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for the blessings.

I was able to get three of the books you listed today included the Foods That Will Win The War. I've not had a chance to read it, but have it on my list. Thank you for listing them for us. We are doing OK for right now. Using up a lot of stuff we ha stored, but that is what is was for. I hope you have a great day, Vickie.

I started on that book last night and found the statistics on wasting food pretty shocking. It will make me think before throwing out a bread crust. We went out for our every two weeks grocery shopping today. Aldi was mobbed but pretty well stocked. We were carefully keeping our distance but others were constantly getting really close to us. Grrr... When we left there we went down the street to Lidl and the parking lot was fairly empty so we stopped there and were able to get everything else on our list! Aldi had red grapes for .39 a pound and bags of navel oranges for only .69 a bag! Our milk will not likely make it two weeks based on the date but I have some shelf stable milk on hand that we can fill in with at the end. I was happy to see buttermilk at Aldi since even on a regular day they are often out of it. We use a lot of it since we are Southerners! It must go in our biscuits and cornbread and pancakes! Our governor has closed everything down much tighter this week. People would not stay off the beaches so they are closed. Over the weekend there were pontoon boats full of people on the lakes so he has shut down the boat ramps. He closed down beauty shops and barbers and any place else that you are near to other people. Hopefully this will keep more people home here.

I'm so glad you doing alright. You know that's what we are doing too's what we stored the food for. I'll have to replenish it all when this is over and pray that We never have to use it again! Pray hard!

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

I'm so glad you found what you needed. We have been shut down with everything for over two weeks except pharmacies and grocery stores. Oh yeah and gas stations. I'm going to start watching YouTube videos soon so I can cut husbands and grandsons hair. Husband is scared haha

Lana said...

If you use clippers it is pretty easy. I have cut Hubby's hair for 42 years. He was scared too!

Carolyn said...

I did get the 1918 cookbook ... thanks so much for sharing it! It’s such an interesting read with great tips we can use today for conserving food.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

I was looking up videos and I noticed most of them were using clippers. I just might have to do this. I'll tell him Lana has done it!

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

I loved it too..didn't sound like something so long ago. Just timeless tips. I made sure to use a scrapper for my mixing bowl tonight. Have a great day!
