    Kzim4's Note:

    Replace those boxes with a homemade version. I have only tried the stroganoff so far, but the kids absolutely loved this (even more than the boxed stuff!).

      My guys really liked the chili mac,I made a double batch. They weren't so keen on the stroganoff though. very convenient to have on hand and easy to make. I stored mine in baby food jars already measured and ready to go. thanks for the great idea.

      This was nice to modify. I made a 1/6 batch for the Chili Mac, since I didn't have that much cornstarch (... and to be safe, since I hate throwing away leftover big batches we end up not liking.) I omited the milk powder and beef boullion, and just added a couple tbsps of water swished around in the tomato can. I also added more spices (tasted as I added); didn't have basil, but tossed in a bit of cumin and a pinch of cinamon (brings out the tomatoes!) I was running out of room in my pot: I boiled 3 times the noodles (we like our pasta!)separately, so didn't add the water to the beef mix. To top it all off, I added pre-cut green onions, red pepper and corn from the freezer. My daughter told me to save this recipe. My son ate three helpings. Easy, healthy, and a kid approved meal.

      I love that I can know the ingredients... ALL of the ingredients! (way better than boxed mixes with mystery ingredients, IMO!) We tried the Lasagna first and it was super tasty. Next time i am going to swap out the broken lasagna noodles for a mini bowtie or similar. The taste was excellent -- which is more than i can say for the boxed mix! LOL ... I love that i mix up the base and can have it on hand to use in a variety of ways! I am passing this idea on to all of my mommy friends :)
