Monday Munchies ~ Beef Barley Soup

Each Monday we will kick off the week with a Must have recipe to help get you out of the kitchen and back stitching ASAP!

Fall is right around the corner and that means 1 thing at the Leader house ~ SOUP. We LOVE soup in our house. Not canned soup mind you (too much salt and not enough flavor), homemade soup. My husband always makes soup and I love this Beef Barley Recipe. I wish this was a scratch and sniff blog, b/c the smell at my house is amazing! Hope you enjoy this as much as we will tonight!
