Turkey Barley Soup

I found this on allrecipes when I was looking for something to use up my Thanksgiving leftovers. I was pleasantly surprised and will make this again when I have leftover chicken or pork to use. Bonus -- it's super easy!!

2 quarts chicken broth
1 1/2 cup diced celery
1 cup barley {I'll probably do 1/2 cup next time}
1 onion, diced
3/4 cup diced carrots
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp sage
1 bay leaf
1/8 tsp allspice
dash cayenne
2 cups cubed turkey {or chicken or pork}
1/4 cup parsley

Combine first 12 ingredients in large pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30-40 minutes. Add turkey and parsley. Heat through and serve.
