    4       sl           Canadian bacon, cut in thin
                         -strips
    1       qt           Skim milk
    2                    Medium-sized potatoes,
                         -peeled and cut in 1/2-inch
                         -chunks (2 cups)
    1       c            Chopped onion
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Pepper
    3       tb           All-purpose flour
    1       c            Fresh, frozen or canned corn
                         -kernels
    4       c            Coarsely shredded romaine or
                         -other crisp lettuce
    1                    Large ripe tomato, coarsely
                         -chopped (1 1/2 cups)
 
   Cook bacon in a large, preferably non-stick saucepan
   over medium-high heat 1 to 2 minutes, stirring
   occasionally, until lightly browned.
   
   Add 3 cups of the milk, the potatoes, onion, salt and
   pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer
   5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes
   are tender.
   
   While potatoes cook, whisk 1/2 cup of the remaining
   milk with the flour until blended. Stir milk mixture
   into soup along with the remaining 1/2 cup of milk and
   the corn. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 2 to
   3 minutes, until slightly thickened.
   
   Add romaine and tomatoes and cook 1 minute longer, or
   until lettuce is wilted. Makes 8 1/2 cups.
