June 26 2012 CD - Mushroom Barley Soup

not actually our soup but it looked just like this
from The Joy of Cooking

3 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 lbs mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup chopped shallots
1 tsp dried thyme
2 cups veggie stock (bweeyawn cubes work)
2 1/2 cups water
3/4 cups dried barley groats
1 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper

1. Try really hard not to interfere with Brennon's absurdly messy chopping style
Bstyle and the outraged OCD chicken
2. Blend oil and butter on high heat,
3. add mushrooms and shallots, cook until mushrooms are wilted, about 5 minutes
4. add thyme, reduce heat and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes 
5. add broth, barley, salt, pepper
6. bring to a boil, reduce heat*, cover and simmer until barley is tender, about 1 hour
*Brennon actually boiled this hard for an unknown length of time before intervention so it's a pretty bulletproof recipe
