Moms on WIC

How do you use the evaporeted milk that you get every month?

Do you use it to cook? Do you add water and make use it as regular milk?


I have cans of this stuff backed up. 

Every now and then Dh will use it in his coffee. I will use it to cook with if we are running low on regulat milk. 

Today I mixed a few cans with water in a milk jug. Then I tried it. It didn't taste TOO bad. It tasted like Skim milk but with a funky little after taste. I used chocolate and made some chocolate milke for DS with it. He didn't seem to mind. 

Anyways so I was just wondering how you other WIC moms use this stuff?

Edit: For those who are saying you do not get it, do you CHOOSE not to get it or is it not offered to you?

Beans and brown rice is so EASY to use. 

You can make chili with beans. Make different soups with rice, and now you can get tortillas or bread instead of rice. 

I thought evaporated milk was something that has been on the WIC list for like forever.... umm

Not on WIC, but I use it to make gravy mostly.
