      Perfect for our beautiful fall day. I made this as posted except I did not have crushed tomatoes so instead put in half water and half tomato juice hence the redness in photo. I also put in 1/2 cup quick barley about 3 hours before done and extra black pepper. Thank you Engrossed for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.

      The thyme smelled sooo good as this was cooking. The soup really hit the spot on this cold snowy day. The kids had a 'snow day' and keep asking when it was going to be done. I did add 1 cup more of the water. But the soup was really just perfect. Thank you for posting Made for *1 2 3 Hit Wonders* game 2008

      I used some Healthy Meat Balls that were in the freezer in place of the ground beef and beef soup base. I'm not sure that the chili powder and mustard helped the flavor here but I found that I didn't have the stewed tomato's I thought I did and since I didn't think tomato sauce would be a good sub I didn't add any tomato at all. That could well have made the difference so I'm not giving it any stars as I don't feel that it would be fair to the recipe. I liked it but I think I'd add more barley and make sure that I have the stewed tomato's next time.
