Oxtail and Barley Soup to Welcome Fall

I was giddy walking to my car yesterday. I was cold. Yes, cold. Funny how you can forget that sensation during the summer. Cold is so welcomed in the fall and then so disdained come late March.

So in celebration of fleeces, Uggs, and waaaaaay too many Pinterest fall decor and craft ideas . . . I give you one of my most comforting soups. Perfect to come home to after a Sunday drive through the country, after waiting in the cold for your kid’s coach to wrap up practice, or after an afternoon of apple picking.
