The Thing About Spring is That Cold Weather is Never Far Away: Beef Barley Soup

12:49 PM

The last few days have had our little family buzzing with outdoor activity. The birds were singing, the flowers were starting to bloom, and the bugs were out in force. We spent most of our time outdoors, and even met our new neighbors.  But then, BANG!  Today hit and the snow is flying again. 

Here's a hearty soup to keep us all warm (eventhough my eldest daughter is wearing shorts over her leggings today):

Traditional Beef Barley Soup
2 1/2 quarts water
1 lb stew meat cut into small pieces
1 can diced tomatoes (or 4 roma tomatoes, diced)
1 large onion diced
3 stalks celery diced
1 soup bone (beef marrow)
1 cup barley
Seasalt to taste

Add all ingredients to a large pot.  Bring to boil and reduce heat to low.  Stir often.  Cook 2-3 hours.

Serve and enjoy!  We had big baby spinach salads with this... it IS spring, afterall!
