I bought 20 gallons of milk.

Hey, they were 99 cents.  Now that its been 2 weeks we are in Defcon 1.  I quadrupled this recipe and was able to use an entire gallon of milk.  To celebrate I stopped at the store to see if they were trying to dump any milk for 99 cents.  They were.  But it was chocolate.  No one complained about that purchase.  Ingrates. 
Pure Cream of Tomato Soup
From Epicurious
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 bay leaf
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups tomatoes, chopped (fresh or canned)
Melt the butter in a soup pot. Add the onion and cook over medium heat, stirring, until the onion is softened but not browned. Sprinkle the flour over the butter mixture and continue to stir and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Slowly add the milk, bay leaf, sugar, and salt and continue to cook and stir until slightly thickened. Stir the baking soda into the tomatoes. Add the tomatoes to the milk, and bring just to a simmer. Remove from the heat and put through a strainer.  Or remove bay leaves and blend until smooth in blender.  Taste and correct seasonings. Reheat before serving.
