It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend 

For the past month every Friday Matt sings this song in the morning and then it gets stuck in my head all day. It's killing me slowly. Rebecca Black, you're hurting my brain. Also - your song is quite catchy. You win.

We have no commitments this weekend, our list of things to do is mostly gardening and walks in the sun with a small dash of buying a new stove.

Easy Friday night dinner tonight is sumac grilled halibut (oh delicious sumac with your lemony astringent tartness!) and a super delicious and healthy salad.

Edamame, Chickpea and Wheat Berry Salad
1 1/2 cups chickpeas (15 oz can), drained and rinsed
1 cup edamame, shelled
1 cup cooked wheat berries (I cheat and use these)
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp plain yogurt
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped or grated
juice and zest of one lemon
salt and pepper to taste

• Cook shelled edamame in boiling water for 3-4 minutes until beans are cooked, drain and rinse in cold water.
• In a mixing bowl combine chickpeas, edamame, wheat berries, green onions and dill together.
• In a separate bowl whisk together olive oil, yogurt, mustard, garlic, lemon juice and zest. Mix over other ingredients and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serves 4 and seriously - so tasty and fresh and healthy!
