Roasted barley flour
It turns out to be incredibly peaceful to stand at the stove and roast barley flour in a hot hot hot pan. And while I wasn't roasting it just for me me me, but for the other seven members of soup swap, it turned out to be a lovely, calm activity. And since this week's mide (middah) is, in fact, Calmness, it was a joy to discover calmness in an unlikely, but then in retrospect likely, place.
