Cream Soup Subsititue

I got this out of the Confident Choices Cookbook.  You can use this in lieu of canned soups in recipes.  It suggests using it as a base in casserole's, Soups, as a Pizza Sauce, ect.   It was really good.  I would eat it as is with crackers on a winter night. 

Ingredients:
2 T Butter
2 T Flour
12 oz can of skim evaporated milk
1/2 t salt
1/4 t garlic powder (I use minced garlic, I handle it better)
3/4 T chopped dried chives (or Onion if you can handle)
1/8 t pepper, if tolerated

Directions:
Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat.  Add flour blending with whisk until sooth.  Slowly add milk, whisking constantly constantly until mixture thickens, remove from heat.  Blend in seasonings.
