I really liked this soup. I've made it several times now. The first time I put some bacon in it and realized it really didn't need it. The second time it was a tad bland so I just sprinkled salt on it. Thanks for posting this recipe it is a new favorite! Oh, I used 4 tbsp flour. This soup has always come out nice a creamy/thick for me.
