Personal Notes:
For step three above for convenience put final (1) cup milk in blender and add the flour. Blend, put in small bowl and microwave in 30 second increments—whisking between each heating. Watch closely and when it start to rise up it is cooked. Stir into soup as in step four. This should prevent the flour from becoming lumpy.
