    This recipe was made on 4/4/13 for mine and my SO's dinner. I did make a couple of changes to the recipe,but I don't think it affected the recipe at all. The chopped celery was replaced with a couple of teaspoons of celery powder.I only had two bouillon cubes,so 3 teaspoons of beef bouillon powder replaced the remaining cubes.Also, I didn't have stewed tomatoes, so the same size can of diced was used.As the soup was cooking, I was hoping that it tasted as incredible as it smelled. And after tasting, I wasn't disappointed at all.And with the slow cooking,the different seasonings and spices had a long time to meld together perfectly. Thank you so very much for posting a great tasting soup. " Keep Smiling :) "

    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
