Cook bacon pieces in a large pan over medium heat until the fat has been rendered and bacon looks crispy. Then add in chopped onion, celery, carrots and garlic. Saute until soft. Deglaze pan with chicken (or vegetable) broth (in other words--add broth and use a wooden spoon to scrape brown bits from bottom of pan). Remove and put contents in a food processor or blender and puree. Put puree back into pan. Then puree the tomatoes and add them. You can leave them as chunky or as smooth as you like. Bring up to a simmer and season with salt, pepper, marjoram and basil. Stir in the milk (optional) and it is ready to serve.
