Another Pleasant Barley Monday. 11/30/15

I made vegetable soup. Of course I put in too much barley. It's good, but plenty thick.

Hope your plates are better! What's on them?

Unfortunately barley has a way of becoming more than you planned on. But I love barley in any soup and for me there is never too much. Just serve up the barley for me. I do soak my barley overnight. That way it won't absorb as much of the liquid.

Thumbs up

I am a great fan of barley, e.g. particularly pot barley (the whole grain). I use it instead of rice - usually with some stock instead of water. I love the flavour and texture of it.

I have scalloped ham, potatoes and cheese with peas in the oven and black pepper-rosemary drop biscuits cooling on the counter.

I love barley too. My problem is I don't measure. I poured it out of the box into the soup. Soup is pretty stiff. DH likes it though.

We used meatballs that were made ahead, with a thin tomato sauce. A nice side salad rounded out the meal. Karen found one of my favorite degestivos, Ponche Caballero. It is an orange based liquior from Spain with additional fruit and spices.

Mmmm....vegetable barley soup. That's going on the menu soon.

Tonight's dinner was a 2 egg veggie omelet, using up what I had in the fridge. Chopped asparagus, red and green bells, onions, and topped with shredded cheddar and chives. Sides were a fruit salad of chopped granny smith apples and Cuties, and toasted sourdough. Pretty yummy.
