Chili chicken legs with barley, honey glazed carrots, and salad; phish food for dessert. Chili chicken legs with barley, honey glazed carrots, and salad. Ben and Jerry's Phish Food ice cream for dessert.

The chicken dish was good, with great flavor - I used barley instead of the called-for wheat, because we have some on hand. Now, this (pearl) barley we have, we've been using rather slowly: tossing a tablespoon here and there into large pots of soup. Tonight was my first foray into actually eating barley like a thing unto itself. I didn't like it; it is too chewy. I half-suspect our barley may be too old, though, and that may cause it. I've heard about putting barley into dishes with ground beef to replace some of the meat, in leaner times, and no one but the cook being the wiser. That wouldn't work with barley this chewy, I'm pretty sure. Anyhow, next time I'll try it with rice instead: I know I like rice. Other than the swapped grain issue, this was a really good dish, and really easy, and we'll definitely make it again!

My idea for saving the prepped peaches for cobbler a few nights' hence failed to take into account the more rapid deterioration rate of peeled and sliced peaches. Ah, well. Times like these is why we keep ice cream in the freezer. And it is very nummy ice cream, indeed!
