I am enjoying the "10 Soup" project so much! Here is Soup #3 which we had on Friday evening when Kristin La Flamme was visiting. This is the Mushroom Barley Soup and we served it with Cheddar Bacon scones.
Kristin reported that the rest of her family doesn't like soup, so I was happy to give her the opportunity to enjoy a food that's a staple in our family, especially in the winter. (Who doesn't like soup?!)
I've never cooked with barley, so I'm continuing to add new things to my cooking skills and tool box.
Here is the magazine image. As you can tell, I'm no food stylist and my lighting was awful -- but this is more about the soup than the picture!
If I was looked for an excuse to use the work "umami" in my blog, this is the perfect time!
The scones were great too.
So far, the three soups I've made have been really good. I'd even make them again. I wonder how the other seven will turn out. Stay tuned.
