So pretty much everything tastes wonderful cooked in a Dutch Oven. Camping food, stews, all good things. So today I was hungry for some kind of soup/stew. I had the stuff for chili and was about to make it when I saw the recipe for Beef and Barley soup. Just so happens I had bought some barley. So I made it with a few changes. I added Veggie Stock instead of beef bouillon cubes. I also used fresh carrots and celery instead of frozen veggies that the recipe called for. It turned out WONDERFUL! Really hit the spot. We ate it with salad and garlic bread.
Also in honor of April Fool's Day, we decided to make treats instead of tricks. So we whipped up a batch of cookies. They are dark chocolate macadamin nut oatmeal cookies. I also used Stevia instead of sugar. I have to say they aren't quite as good as usual. I am out of Vanilla. Bummer. Still pretty great cookies though.
