Yesterday, I had a proper lazy Saturday. I mean really lazy, I watched an American film and a National Geographic documentary called LA92 about the 1992 Los Angeles protests and riots. Today, will probably be the same with some cooking in between and a little ironing in readiness for the coming working week tomorrow.
Now onto food. We finished of eating the last of this Iranian Pearl Barley Soup known as Ash-e Jo or Ash-e-Jow . It looks deceptively plain, but it has so much depth and flavour mostly from the fresh herbs. As well as barley and chickpeas which are visible, there are lots of greens in it such as spinach, dill and coriander and a homegrown leek which came from my own allotment garden plot. We both loved this Iranian Pearl Barley Soup that I will definitely make it again.
