Where did you find the dried potatoes? Those would come in handy. I have three teens now and one box of anything doesn’t make a meal anymore.
When there is no wind, row.

Subject: Budget101.com : Stretching box mixes
I’m not a good cook – so a lot of my cooking comes in boxes. I have
found ways to stretch that a little and am looking for other ways.
If I’m cooking macaroni & cheese, I add a little more macaroni; making
a pasta salad from a box – just add extra of the same pasta; potatoes
au gratin – I found a store that sells those dried potatoes and now I
add a few more potatoes to the mix. You can easily add an extra serving
without noticing any difference for pennies.
