Tropical Wheat Berry Salad
This morning I was in a mad dash to pack lunch and I was absolutely convinced I had Craisins in the pantry. I didn’t see them where I usually keep them, so I immediately proceeded to rip through everything on all the shelves, searching frantically. Don’t asked me why I was so obsessed with finding dried cranberries.
I made a pitiful attempt at putting things back, then gave up. Looks like somebody’s organizing the pantry tonight. (I’m sure the husband thoroughly appreciated all the ruckus so early in the morning. Actually, I’m even more certain he slept through it like a rock.)
Don’t worry, I found the Craisins:
Exactly where I first looked. I blame the pre-oats morning stupor.
When I was making my oatmeal, I realized I might have gone a little overboard in my wheat berry making escapade. I have SO many wheat berries pre-cooked in the fridge that I’ll never get through them by oats alone.
I decide to make a wheat berry salad. As I threw things in to the wheat berries, it quickly took on a tropical theme: Granny Smith apples, dried cranberries, lime juice, unsweetened coconut, walnuts, and celery. (Celery? You know, that famous tropical celery?)
Next time I’d ditch the celery. That was just strange.
You can’t live on salad alone, so I also had barbeque pizza.
Told you I’d turn into pizza. Just wait. I’m ok with it.
So on the radio on the way to work this morning they changed the snow prediction to little accumulation and mostly overnight tonight. Umm I just looked out the window…the cars in the parking lot are already covered! Geez. Bring on the 60 degrees.
