Doesn't anyone make anything from scratch?

Take a quarter stick of butter, melt it in a small pot. This will be your roux.

In another pot, start heating up 3 cups of milk.

Chop up a handful of washed mushrooms. I like very small pieces - do whatever you like. Sautee the mushroom pieces in some butter and salt until soft.

When your roux butter is melted, with the heat on medium, get a whisk and start whisking in flour, a bit at a time, until you've got no lumps and a paste texture. Keep whisking it, watching the color go from white to yellow to light tan to tan. Take off the heat. Stir is the mushrooms, and then slowly mix in the hot milk, whisking as you add it. Hooray, cream uf mushroom soup.

10 minutes, max. No additives, you control the sodium, all fresh - easy!
I know how to make roux, white sauce, etc. Dry mix I use is part of my OAMC, which is pretty handy to have in my pantry. We are all full of grace here. Don't judge me because I'm lazy!

Sorry, OAMC?

Really - not judging; just trying to figure out why perfectly rational people would buy a can of gloppy goop (or powdered mix in your case) instead of taking a few minutes to do it from scratch. It just doesn't make sense to me at all if you've got the skills and ingredients.

I make the powdered dry mix to keep in my pantry, which I can use in place of canned cream of whatever mix. It's just handy. I know you are not judging. It was just a joke.
BTW, OAMC=Once a month cooking. It's something I do once in a while, so I have easy to fix meals in my freezer, which keeps me from running to fast foods or Chinese take out when I'm busy.
