As soon as I spotted this recipe in the January 2005 issue of Country Extra magazine, I knew I would like it, for I am a big fan of barley. It was sent in by Jean Thomsen from Melfort, Saskatchewan. We had this at lunch yesterday (a cold day here in Colorado) with a bowl of hot tomato bisque soup....luscious! Thankfully, we have some leftovers, too. My thanks to Jean.
