A Postscript

A little postscript to my last post! Angel asked me if I used organic soup in my sauce. Angel, I do use organic soups in my sauces. I also use organic broth, organic noodles, and organic produce. I switched to organic soups for my sauces many years ago. I realized that one of the most unhealthy things we were eating was Campbell's cream soups. They are loaded with MSG, preservatives, and everything artificial. For those who are curious, just read the labels. The brand of organic soups and broths I use contain absolutely nothing artificial, no food colorings, no preservatives, no artificial thickeners, and most importantly, low sodium and NO MSG.

I will say, Angel, that I always find my soups and broths on sale at my grocery store. The Health Valley soups are a bit more watery than Campbell's, but that never has affected my recipes or the taste. I like Health Valley because they taste good, and also because I know we can eat them and still be healthy!

I know that's a long answer, but there it is, and thanks for asking, Angel.

Of course, you can make my recipes with whatever you choose to use. Campbell's, store brand, whatever.

If you gals do make my recipes for your families, let me know how you liked them!

Thanks, Leanne!
I've used Health Valley too. I think they're more watery because they're actually real soup and not "condensed." I've had to adjust the other ingredients to compensate for that. I do like that you can actually SEE the mushrooms in their Cream of Mushroom soup! ;)
I'll have to try the recipe; but not 'til after my next shopping trip as I don't happen to have either kind of mushroom soup at present.

or chicken either. (since I just reread the recipe and realized it said chicken not mushroom soup).

I've started to feel a bit more comfortable adapting recipes to our likes and what I happen to have on hand. Like reading this recipe I found myself thinking it sounds good and I may try adding bread crumbs & Parmesan cheese on top. :) But then again you do make yummy food so I may just stick to your recipe exactly!
