If you remember, one of my goals for June was to try wheat berries!
So, yesterday was the day to make them. . . I followed Kath’s directions.
I tasted them right after cooking and they were nice and chewy. Since I have never had wheat berries I have no idea how they are supposed to taste, but they seemed good!
I decided to use the wheat berries as a base for a ‘salad’ for lunch today.
1/2 cup of wheat berries = the base + radishes + peas + tomatoes + apples + carrots + green onion
It was a really really good lunch. Wheat berries don’t have much of a ‘taste’ to them, but add a good amount of chew to the meal. It seemed like a good base to my salad: 1/2 cup = 120 calories.
After work, I took Abby on a 4 mile run at the Red Jacket trail. I love that trail cause Abby can be off leash pretty much the whole time. Every once in a while a ‘serious’ biker comes along and gets angry if she is on their side of the trail but thankfully that doesn’t happen very often.
Dinner was grilled chicken that I marinated in this blackberry chipotle sauce I got from Harry and David. It was just ok, pretty decent flavor but it still had blackberry seeds. . .
With roasted asparagus (in 400 degree oven, drizzled with olive oil, sea salt and pepper, ,10-15 minutes) from our weekly CSA share.
On tap for tonight: Glee and ice cream!
Hope you had a great hump day. . . one day closer to the weekend!
Have you tried anything ‘new’ this week?
