I'm trying to do the whole foods thing... the less processed, the better, and I found a great recipe for homemade "cream of _____" soup on Pinterest...
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)

Last week I made Chef Meg's Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken and it was phenomenal. It is in the SP Cookbook but you can also find it in the recipe section of SP. I used it for lunches the next day and will probably make it again this week.
