I have heard that it's easier to find canned soup with no MSG. I have looked and it takes a lot of looking. I also have to make sure they don't have soy or sweet potato. After decades of just ignoring most canned soup, I don't often think to look.

I would love to find an onion soup mix packet with no MSG. There are so many recipes that use onion soup mix.

So it seems like it takes forever for the whole train to pass through. In the meantime, that dang horn is blowing and blowing and blowing.

That's the thing, there are gates. And depend on city council they can decide to have no sound train. Need to go the council meeting and complain.

That's just one of the things that are so great in this country. You have the right to complain and have a resolution to your complaint. Get to that meeting. You have the right to peace and quiet in your own home.

Based on my experience with train whistles, I'll be surprised if that works. I hope I'm wrong and you get your silence. Good Luck Charlie.

TL--in about 2 minutes, you can mix up a batch of your own.

Dry Onion Soup Mix Recipe - Allrecipes.com I use beef stock that I dehydrated because I can't stand the sodium in bouillon granules.

Extra good, add some dried porcini powder to that. Thanks for the link, I already have all those ingredients.

Thanks for the link. Not gonna take 2 mins for me. I don't buy bouillon granules or powder either. Not only is there usually excessive salt, most of them have MSG and some have soy.

Would you please explain how you dehydrate stock? I have a dehydrate setting on my toaster oven.

My dehydrator has those "fruit leather" trays. I just cover those with homemade stock and dehydrate (at 140 F) overnight and grind the sheets of dried stock in the coffee grinder dedicdated for spices. I think you could use parchment paper in the toaster oven on the flat pan...not sure, but it wouldn't be a big loss if that failed. I dehydrated some lamb stock the other night so now I have lamb stock "bouillon" powder.

PF--I have added ground button or portebello mushrooms. I also make mushroom salt...

If one more person asks me how I stay so slim, I think I will bonk the person on the head. Would anyone dare ask someone "how do you stay so overweight?" I changed my eating habits 3-4 years ago. No white, very little bread. Lots of veggies, a good breakfast and smaller meals through the day. I shrunk from a size 14 to a size 6/8 now. I have spent a small fortune on having my favorite clothes altered. I've spent my evening sorting through my favourite clothes to take to the tailor and the others are going to the Goodwill. I don't eat processed food, white sugar, pasta, or bread (I cheat s/times). Luckily, I'm a protein freak, so don't crave those things. I think I've reached the limit re: how much I can shrink.

I don't have any special trays, but I have a grill tray bottom that is about 2 cm deep. I could put foil in that and dehydrate some stock.
