Good morning Debby. The soup sounds delicious! Twice baked potatoes don’t seem any different to me than once baked :confused:

We are taking the dogs to the park of course, then I’m making the kids help me with some chores and making apple fritters for the first time ever. Sending those to work with Igor tomorrow, all the guys have been asking about me this weekend. So sweet.

Good morning IM!

The mushroom barley soup is one of our favorites (plus it's an easy one to make). DH called to say he's coming home tomorrow so I got a batch of his best-liked bread going.

The dogs will enjoy the park! Good luck with the apple fritters, they sound wonderful.

Good morning IM, Debby , Janie , DMC , I crave mushroom soup , saw a couple pinkies ( that's what we call white button mushrooms ) yesterday . The Aborted Entaloma , shrimpies , as we call them, never made a good showing . I may have to buy some . I put Shiitake , Golden oyster ,White button mushrooms when I make soup . I haven't tried barley.

Morning Mark :frow

Here's my soup recipe if you'd like to try it:

MUSHROOM BARLEY SOUP

2 Tab butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 ribs celery with leaves, diced
1/4 Cup parsley
1 carrot, peeled and chopped
1 lb. fresh mushrooms
1 Tab flour
2 quarts beef broth
1 Cup whole barley
2 tsp salt

1. Melt butter in large skillet and sauce onion, celery, 2 Tab parsley, carrot, garlic mushrooms until soft (about 5 minutes).
2. Lower heat and add flour. Stir often for about 5 minutes or until thick.
3. In soup pot heat beef broth. Stir in the mushroom mixture.
4. Turn heat to high and add barley. Stir well and add salt to taste.
5. Simmer, covered about 1 hour or until barley is tender and the soup thickened. Stir often.

And it just gets better the 2nd (and 3rd) day.

Good morning, Everyone.

The Princess and I are going to a community theater production of ? This is her deal - not mine - that's our story. Everyone will be masked so relatively safe. No reaction to the Moderna booster.

Morning Sour, does the Princess have any upcoming plays she'll be in?

Hope you have a good time!
