When I was a little kid, I remember going to Friendly’s with my Dad one Saturday afternoon. I don’t remember how old I was. Maybe 8 or 10 or something like that. I do remember that I had the most delicious beef barley soup. Although, I had eaten beef barley soup several times before, it had never been so wonderful. That Saturday afternoon began a love affair with beef barley soup that I thought would last a lifetime.
Relationships do not alway work out as we plan. Beef barley soup contains gluten. Beef barley soup and I are no more.
Although I hate wheat with a burning passion, I strangely still do not hate barley. If fact, I have only warm feelings for barley, particularly beef barley soup. Unfortunately, those warm feelings are no longer in my belly.
Bye Bye Beef Barley.
