I didn’t have high expectations for this dish. I was actually even dreading it. After a pointless trip to Chicago (the judge changed the date of the status while I was on the train) and a long day getting ready for some depositions tomorrow, I really just wanted to get take out. Unfortunately (or fortunately if you are on a diet), there aren’t any good take out restaurants in Woodstock. I stopped at Jewel to get extra mushrooms and went home to start making Mushrooms & Cannellini Paprikas and scarlet barley. The barley was more of a light pink than scarlet, because I am afraid of beats and only used some pink water from a can of sliced beats. The mushroom & cannellini paprikas dish was very hearty. H said that this was one of his favorite dishes. It’s the perfect dish for a cold snowy day. Another AFR success!
