I know, everyone and their dog is complaining about the deep freeze from the polar vortex, but MAN it’s cold!!!
That was the temp in our garage this morning. UGH. Granted, I’m laughing at people back home/out East, because we here on the Plains seem to get hit like this every couple years. I think Jay said the last time it was this cold was 2 years ago, maybe 3. They called school off due to the wind chills (I don’t even want to find out what that’s at right now!), so the bambino and I hung out at home today (no daycare). Poor Jay still had to venture out and go to work, so I thought a nice hot meal would help take the chill away once he got home. Something warm and filling, like Barley Beef Soup:
I made this in the crock-pot, so it’s fairly similar to my other Crock-Pot Barley Beef Soup. The only real difference is that I used tomato sauce rather than diced tomatoes this time.
And this makes plenty of leftovers, which will be nice for lunch, since it’s not supposed to warm up until the weekend!
Just a friendly reminder, you have until Friday to enter my Eggland’s Best giveaway!
