No kidding, they were $4.99 a pound! And I had a hard time finding them, they were in the freezer case, which means they don't sell much...so why so expensive?

I just put the barley in and it smells heavenly! Shrek is already chomping at the bit, "When will it be done?" Once it's done I will divide it in half and add diced tomatoes to mine. Shrek doesn't like cooked tomato chunk in his soup.

Looks like about a gallon of it! I wanted to make sure I had enough for at least one lunch at work!

Dinner was postponed till tomorrow. LOL Well actually home cooked dinner is postponed till tomorrow. Everyone wanted to order chinese. I went out for 2 hours and the car A/C isn't working properly (its blowing warm air, it was 90F outside and the temp in the car was around 100F. It was cooler outside when I got out of the car!) by the time I got home I felt so sick from the heat (and there was a lot of traffic I actually made myself car sick from the stop and go) I didn't argue. I will probably have a green salad or tomato salad later.
