April shower morning

Awakening to a gray damp April morning. It seems a good day to make a pot of vegetable soup. There were some leftover corn, tomatoes, and okra from last nights dinner. That will form the great base for a pot of vegetables simmering in chicken stock with the addition of fresh carrots and celery and some frozen corn from last year‘s garden. No measurements needed really here ! I had about 1/4 cup of dried beans that I was soaking to cook today so I just added those to the stock pot and also added 1/4 cup of barley. Now I just sit back and drink my coffee while heat works its science to this part of nourishment.
