Souping it up

The long suffering Mrs. Copper has issued an edict. She announced that effective today, despite the fact that it is 75 degrees outside, soup season has officially begun. In fact she has declared 2009 the year of the soup.

In my never ending effort to satisfy every whim of my long suffering wife I prepared the ingredients above and combined them with some spiffy spices and they are currently simmering on the stove top.

I had hoped to boldly attempt a Puerto Rican/Polish fusion in this endeavor but it seems that my stash of dried mushrooms has gone missing.

Within the hour we will have the answer to the age old question. Is there such a thing as too much garlic in beef barley soup?
