Homemade Yummy Tomato Soup

I got the recipe for this soup out of a book that I checked out of the library.  I changed the recipe quite a bit, and I think it turned out great!  I used lots of veges out of our garden.  Here it is:

Yummy Tomato Soup
1/2 cube of butter
1 TBSP flour
8-10 tomatoes pureed in the blender
3-4 small green peppers without seeds, chopped
2 cans evaporated milk
2 cans of chicken broth

Melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux, cooking until the roux is a medium brown.  Remove from heat.  
Heat Chicken broth and milk.  Gradually add the roux mixture until it thickens.     Gradually whisk in a bit of the tomato mixture, so that no lumps form, then stir in the rest.  Add green peppers.  Mix and cook on stove until heated through or until peppers are soft. Serve with French bread!  Soooo yummy.  Your family will loooove it!
