Hi <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
I am sitting here staring at my newly acquired WIC cans of salmon, wondering why I picked them out and what the heck to do with them!<br><br>
Any great 'what to do with your WIC food' recipes floating around out there?<br><br>
I know there was a thread a while ago about using the extra milk, now to go re-earth it...<br><br>
TIA

our favorite thing to do with the milk is pudding or home made ice cream.<br><br>
Everything else we use normally in cooking for the most part.<br><br>
Anyone have ideas for things to do with rice krispies & corn flakes? I have a ton we got on WIC and DD can't eat cereal with milk.

Corn flakes can be crushed/rolled and mixed with spices to make a breading/coating for fish/chicken.

Rice krispie treats!<br><br>
You can get tomato juice, then use it for cooking soups and spaghetti and stews and as a braising liquid.<br><br>
We eat canned salmon as salmon patties--mix with an egg, some diced onion, and a little flour to bind it (some people use mashed potatoes or instant potato flakes). Shape into balls/patties (whatever you like), and pan fry. This was my favorite childhood meal.

I think I must have the only kid who doesn't like rice krispie treats! Go figure.<br><br>
I'm debating trying to crush them and use them like corn flakes for crumbs & breading.<br><br>
I have about 15 boxes to use up - it just keeps getting put in the pantry and never used.

Corn flakes make great corn flake cookies.<br>
I usually get Chex cereal because everyone in my home loves puppy chow and home made chex mix.

I wish we could get Chex - DD loves to eat it dry. But Chex is only allowed in our state for gluten free packages, which DD isn't on.<br><br>
Do you have a recipe for the corn flake cookies?

Cornflakes are good for meatloaf or meatballs. As a filler to help stretch the # of servings.<br><br>
My kids like to dip their bananas in the rice krispies- "crunchy bananas".

Crushed cornflakes are good on top of tuna noodle casserole. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat"> Maybe you could sub salmon for the tuna? For the rice I make fried rice with whatever I have laying around. I'm planning on experimenting with rice pudding too. Also I have a grain mill and can put the rice in there to make flour, but you could maybe run some through a food processor to use in baking. Custard is an easy thing to make with leftover milk and eggs.

If it's whole milk, you can make paneer (Indian cheese). Very tasty. Just google to find directions.

I add salmon to confetti rice (rice with veggies in it) and have a lovely meal.<br><br>
Cornflakes and rice krispies are good fillers for meatloaf.<br>
That's weird about the cereals, i thought it was a national program? We get many kinds here. /you can eat it without milk, with plain water or a fake milk, rice milk, etc.

I loved when we got peanut butter. DS loves peanut butter cake. Basically make like reg white cake but add 1/2 jar of PB to the cake mix... then add the other 1/2 of PB to the frosting... soooo yummy and full of PB..... maybe I will make some this winter....(works best if you have a kitchen aid mixer, the PB is thick)

You can use canned salmon as you would tuna. I make salmon salad all of the time -- add celery and mayo. I also really like to add pieces of apple. Salmon noodle casserole? (white sauce -- which is only flour, water, fat and milk -- but really check in a good cook book for how to do it because if you don't make it right it doesn't taste right). Just use the white sauce, add the salmon, some celery, peas and whatever other veggies, and some egg noodles. Use your corn flakes crushed for a topping and bake for a bit. Should be very tasty -- I use this recipe all of the time but for my veg kids I use chick peas and not tuna or salmon. Leftover chicken pieces would work nice to. Take that exact same recipe, leave out the noodles and put it in a crust and voila, you have a pot pie. Salmon pot pie? Why not? Take out the crust and put biscuits on the top and voila you have another kind of casserole. I like to add some herbes de provence to the pot pie...<br><br>
If you want exact instructions for the white sauce, I can copy it from my 1930s cookbook.

I think the only difference is the cereal in our state.

Anyone have ideas for what to do with ALL these jars of baby food? I have a lot of variety, but don't know how to sneak it in. DD was eating it, but decided she only wants to eat thing she can pick up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> Meats (lamb, beef, ham), veggies, and fruit. And when I say a lot, I'd estimate close to 200 jars <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy"><br><br>
Salmon pattis are so yummy, and so is salmon pot pie with biscuit topping!<br><br>
My state has a WIC cookbook that I'll try to dig out tonight.<br>
ETA- google "WIC cookbook" and you'll get several states' books!
