Wheat Berry Salad with Kale and Feta

If I could have three wishes, I would be super tempted to make Mondays off one of them.  I was lucky enough to have two in a row in January and again in February, and I definitely made the most of them.

Even though it was unusually chilly (we got super spoiled with the awesome weather the last couple weeks), we went to the playground in the morning.

After lunch and a nap, we met up with the grandparents at the zoo!

We spent most of the time in the little house with the monitor lizard, but also said hello to some birds, the elephants, and the meerkats.

Dinner was really quick and easy.  I cooked up a whole bunch of wheat berries this weekend, so all I had to do for this was crumble up the feta and slice up some vegetables.  There are a ton of variations on this, and the leftovers are perfect to take for lunch.

    Having every Monday off would be spectacular, probably even better than having every Friday off.

    The salad looks fantastic – doubly fantastic since you just have to throw it together.

    I need to cook up some wheatberries – right now my fridge is full of quinoa, which I could substitute, but it doesn’t have the same chewy goodness.

    I love taking fresh salads like this for lunch. This one looks really hearty but not filling.

    I’ve never had wheat berries, I do fancy trying them. I have a bag full of kasha in my pantry – ever tried it? Any ideas as to how to glam it up?

    This looks AWESOME. Never heard of wheat berries but I will have to try them.
