Don't laugh. It's true!
I've written before about how much money we began to save by using powdered milk. When made the night before and chilled well, we couldn't tell the difference between skim milk and powdered skim milk.
Then the milk hit the fan....it began tasting watery to me. I couldn't drink it. I told Rick it was like bad Yoohoo (a chocolate drink that's never seen the inside of a cow, as far as I know).
The milk I didn't like was REAL milk (ok, it was skim milk, but it wasn't powdered) from Kroger! I'd found some on sale for $2/gallon and we'd put it in the freezer. Rick had thawed it out and used it to make me some chocolate milk. ICK!
We're mixing the powdered milk correctly and getting the entire yield from the box so it's not like we're using extra powder and making it richer.
