  4. i am really new to cooking… 🙂 but question- is it only supposed to be 2 tbsp of flour? seems to be so little when dealing with 6 cups of milk? thanks!

  5. How many(lbs) potatoes are put in the soup? 3 lbs of potatoes and four left out could be 2,3, or four depending on how they are picked. I would like to make this recipe. 🙂 Thank you.
