This is the best gosh darn soup! MIL makes it every year and I finagled the recipe from her..I know it sounds weird but its heavenly. She got the recipe out of a store flyer.

This turned out wonderfully! I made a double batch with the leftovers from the Thanksgiving dinner I made while visiting a friend in Florida. He took it to work for "potluck" and they all wanted the recipe. I used more barley than called for as I wanted to ensure a "stew" consistency rather than a soup. I was sorry I could not take any home on the plane!
