I got a quick question: Any 40ish moms out there?...What "face cleaner" do you use that is "good" and can be bought in a Vit?.

I also got another question: I've had two so far and haven't really been that impressed. They taste good but the consistency is really yucky. It's either to thick and pastey or too watery. So far I've tried the Fettuccini Alfredo and the Pasta Parmesian with Broccoli...

Your question was: Any 40ish moms out there?...What "face cleaner" do you use that is "good" and can be bought in a Vit?.

Those can be bland without adding something to them. One of the main tips I can give you is let them sit for longer than the directions say. I usually put my boiling water in... give a good stir...put something on the top and let them sit for AT LEAST 15 minutes. It also helps to save a protein/dairy from breakfast and add a little chicken or FF cheese to them. My favorite is the Black Bean & Tortilla soup.

A bit of warning though.......before you talk to anyone after eating the BB&T soup, check your teeth. I ran around one day at work looking like all my teeth were rotted outThose little black specks of beans gets in every nook & cranny that is available to them. Good luck...

I put sour cream in the spicey ones, fat free of course. I put cream cheese or laughing cow in the cheesey ones. I perfer them thick to watery...

The first time I tried the broccoli parm..I was at work and in a hurry I put too much water in and stuck it in the microwave...it then proceeded to bubble all over while I was not looking...so I was stuck with crunchy noodles and chunks of seasoning...needless to say I didnt have much to eat that day ..I usually put in a little less water...stir it really well and microwave it for a few seconds..so far so good.....

I usually let them sit a lot longer than recommended (as someone above posted), but I also usually add (as my lunch protein) a chopped up stick of string cheese and let it melt as the noodles are cooking. Stir at least once mid-way through..

If I let it sit too long, a quick nuke ... and VIOLA! Yum...

I second everyone who says to use less water and let it sit longer. That's the real trick to keep it from being so runny.

Specifically with the Pasta Parm w/ Broccoli, I add some tuna as my protein for that meal and make myself some delicious tuna casserole...

I saw on another post to add the correct amount of water to it the night before and transfer it into a container and refrigerate overnight. Then once it's lunch time just add a little more water...like a couple tablespoons and nuke it for a few minutes. I had no problem with it at all as far as it being too water or too powdery. I did need to add some seasoning to it but I believe this process really lets the ingredients meld and the dry ingredients reconstitute!.

Hope that helps!.

I've found something that works well for me, as long as I'm at home. I do what it says on the back of the container: fill it, nuke it, and let it sit. Then I transfer it into a bowl and nuke it for a couple more minutes. After that it always comes out PERFECT...

Hi. I love the pasta cup (add water) lunches. I just finished eating my Pasta Parm with Broccoli. I usually add less water than what it calls for. Yes, it can get thick. But, after I let it sit for about 20 minutes, I add a little tap water and microwave for about 30-60 seconds.

From my experience, it is better to add less water and "fix it" after it sits then to add too much water.

Good Luck with the Program...
