There's is nothing I hate more than having food reach it's used by date in the back, unloved corner of my pantry and having to be unceremoniously tossed out.
I had a bag of pearl barley nearing this predicament so Taste.com to the rescue.
Twas a delicious meal with the cherry on cake being the avoidance of "unnecessary waste guilt".
Next on the "must use v. soon" is polenta and Israeli couscous.
What can I say, I get excited at the supermarket.
