    Tomato Soup
    1/3 cup butter
    1/4 cup flour
    3 cups tomato juice (I use 2 pint jars of homemade tomato juice)
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1-2 cups milk
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat.  
    2. Then whisk in the flour until smooth.
    3. Add the tomato juice or V-8 and stir until it thickens.
    4. Next whisk in the soda followed by 1 cup of milk, sugar and salt. 
    5. Cook until heated though. 
    6. Taste the soup at this point and if you like it creamier, add the additional cup of milk.
