Anyone Love Homemade Tomato Soup!?!

I don't have chicken soup and frankly don't care to eat chicken soup right now so I came up with this and I think I am going to be eating it for the next month or so if I have my way. ;)

Homemade Tomato Soup!
Taken from a 1950 Betty Crocker cookbook

Blend in pot

3 TBSP Butter

2 TBSP Flour

1 tsp Salt

1/8 tsp Pepper (I just shook some in)

This is where I step in and change things

1 can 28 oz. (1 lb. 12 oz.) Peeled Whole Tomatoes in Tomato Juice

1 can 10.75 oz. Tomato soup (Cheap store brand)

1 can 6 oz. of Tomato Paste

Crushed Dried Basil to taste

(this adds a wonderful flavor to the soup, highly recommended!)

1/4 tsp Baking Soda (that is actually in the recipe)

I mix it up really good and mush all the tomatoes up with my hands to break them down because I don't like waiting. Once everything is stirred up reallygood.

then add

4 cups Milk

Bring to boil, stirring constantly.

I don't know how much this feeds but it is a really good pot and we had enough for two days...only becuase the five of us had big bowls of it!

I also crushed up some ritz crackers (the perfect cracker for Tomato soup I think) and some finely shredded Colby cheese on top!
