Doesn't sound stupid to me. The whole measuring system using quarts is kinda stupid. The US got the quarts/ ounces/ gallons/ etc. from the Brits a long time ago. You guys were still officially using quarts & gallons, etc until 1959 and longer, unofficially. Here in Canada, we switched from Imperial measure to metric in the '70s. Imperial quarts were bigger than US quarts. It could get really confusing. It gets even better. There are liquid quarts and dry quarts. Here you want liquid quarts = 946 ml.

I believe that the legal definition of half & half in the US and Canada is 10% butterfat in the cream.

I'm confused--in the US we didn't have table cream--we just had 1/2 and 1/2. It took me a long time to figure out they were not one and the same.

I think it would be a very good base. I would add more veggies and before I thickened it too much.
