I think my "comfort food for the day" will be mac and cheese. I toss in broccoli, maybe some sausage.

Thanks Patricia.  Too bad it's a 2,400+ mile drive for me.

Well, the barley soup/stew came out great, even if I do say so myself. Wonderful meal for a cold winter's evening. Only problem (a major one) is the oven on my stove gave out, so I couldn't make any bread. Another expense I don't need!!!! AAAAGGHHHH!!!!!!

Randall, just cook a cup or two of barley separately...in broth, preferably....then add it to the soup pot when the beans, or whatever,  are done.

I've done that for more years than I can count, and it works fine.

I love barley or wild rice as a nice hearty addition to a soup or stew, which are always great in winter.

My proofreading skills have been steadily eroding for a while. I'll occasionally find a blatant spelling error on a PowerPoint slide I've used several times. Embarrassing!

Is soup considered a "comfort food"? I pulled out 5 soup recipes from my recipe box. No "barely" soup. Maybe lentil. Decision time.

I wondered about bonenkruid, too, Chris. When I read zonnebloemolie I thought that must be a blossom. 

Trying to translate without looking words up was fun! Now, I think I will make the recipe. 

Comment by Plinius on January 11, 2015 at 3:53am

200 gr. of white beans

250 gr. of string beans

2 medium onions

3 spoonfuls of sunflower oil

100 gr. lean smoked bacon (1 slice)

2 dl. vegetable or chicken stock (cube)

1 dl. white wine

1 spoonful of savory (bonenkruid; bonen = beans, kruid = herb)

2 teaspoons of chopped rosemary

Now that you mention bone crud - it puzzles me: dirt from bones? How could that be something in cooking?

Thank you! You make me blush! And I feel so stupid when I'm puzzled with a typo or new idiom! I'm a teacher, so I got used to reading quite slowly and attentively, and yes, I correct my own spelling. Even so I sometimes meet people who say:"You can't be a teacher!? Why don't you know this?"

I've had an interesting adventure. I wondered how a recipe in Dutch would look: 

200 gr. witte bonen, 250 gr, snijbonen, 2 middelgrote uien, 2 teentjes knoflook, 3 eetl. zonnebloemolie, 100 mager rookspek (plak) 2 dl. groente- of kippebouillon (tablet) 1 dl. witte wijn, 1 eetl. gehakt bonenkruid, 2 theel. gehakte rozemarijn.

I think I saw white bone, onion, bouillon, white wine, bone crud, and rosemary. I see there are a lot of "oo" in Dutch as there are in Belgian.
