Anyway, to try to be thrifty, I decided to buy one of those large, restaurant-sized tomato juice cans, so then I decided, when I was going to make the up-coming recipes, that I should figure out how I can make my own tomato sauce (which is slightly thicker than tomato juice) with the tomato juice I had on hand. In comes Google! This is so simple, and just add a bit more flour if it isn't getting thick enough for you!
