Use powdered milk
“I keep a box of powdered milk on hand. When needed, I mix a packet and use it for recipes, sauces and gravy. There is no difference in the texture or taste. I keep the more expensive store-bought milk for drinking. If I don’t need it all, I pour it in with my store-bought milk to stretch it a little further. Don’t tell my son―he doesn’t know that secret!”
