Picture of Tomato Soup
I was going to make cream of tomato soup but the milk kept curdling and I figured if I couldn't prevent that then I shouldn't be making this instructable. So here is a tomato soup that was mostly improvised. it is incredibly easy to make and home canned tomatoes really make it taste good. In addition a grilled cheese sandwich goes great with this.

My dad learned the secret of making cream of tomato soup in his high-school chemistry class, so I can pass it on to you: make your roux, and thin it with the milk or cream. Bring it to a slow bubble. Only then do you stir in the tomatoes. Voila! No curdling.
