Here is my ode to barley: barley is awesome, barley is tasty, barley has a really nice texture, barley would make a great prom date. I realize that is not particularly poetic (or sensical), but that is how I feel. I like barley because it is healthy, it is easy to make, and you can throw pretty much anything in with it and it will come out dandy.

Case in point: yesterday my coworker gave me a whole bunch of tomatoes from his garden, so I boiled up some barley, plucked a mess of basil from our plant, and made a barley, tomato and fresh mozzarella salad with basil dressing. It was durn easy, and delicious. 
My iPhone keeps taking progressively crappier pictures, but you get the idea - tasty healthy make you strong like bull.
