Mushroom Barley Soup

Jan 7, 2013

Well, Daniel's gone this week for meetings and Maddox and I are alone together. Last night was pretty rough, not sure if Maddox has a touch of the flu or is just on sleep strike. He's napping good today so far and seems to be pretty happy. Hopefully the rest of the day goes well.

I was craving something warm and comforting for lunches this week, but something healthy. This soup is pretty filling, and tastes pretty close to a beef barley soup, just without any kind of meat.
