A HEARTY AND DELICIOUS SOUP THAT WILL WARM YOU INSIDE AND OUT.

SERVES: 6

If you have followed me for very long, you will know that it’s no secret that I am a huge fan of soup.  I could seriously eat it EVERY day.  Some weeks, I do! This is a quality that (most) of my children share.  This bowlful of Vegetable Beef, Barley & Mushroom Soup treated our bellies kindly when fall officially hit our neck of the woods a couple of weeks ago.

I recently picked up a freebie magazine that has many dietary tips and recipes in it from our local HyVee store.  This recipe was one that was featured.  I didn’t change much about it, just small tweaks here and there, and it had a great flavor.  My ONLY note about it is this.  If you are NOT a fan of thyme, you may choose to omit it.  It isn’t one of my favorite spices, and I even cut the portion down and it still was a tad over powering for our taste.  If you are a fan, by all means, keep it!  Seems that most stews and vegetable soups call for thyme.

Not sure why my family isn’t a fan, but I guess we can’t like everything. right?

I giggle to myself when I remember a stew I made last winter and my oldest son said as he was eating, “Mom, you can really taste all of the thyme you put into this dinner!” I know where he gets his sarcasm, so I can appreciate it.
