My mother-in-law brought over a container of "chicken soup" and I was delighted! I thought I would have a wonderful bowl of chicken soup for lunch on a cold day. Well, I was shocked to see that it had barley in it. I am somewhat traumatized because I thought it was rice and I have never had barley. I tried to eat it but I just could not get past the texture.
When was the last time your expectations fell short? Food or otherwise?
