Now I know you guys are just dying in anticipation but my next secret ingredient recipe, but you will have to wait just a little bit longer!
First I have to get to my mid afternoon snack…
Going along with the Apple theme I decided to try the other flavor of Kashi cereal bars I bought over the weekend. I really liked the apple flavor. It was just like a yummy apple pie. I’m am so glad I finally had a chance to try these.
Ok now for dinner…
I love pork chops and applesauce. The combo goes so perfectly that I wanted to think of a new twist on this concept. On Monday I had an apple chicken sausage, which really got the apple and pork idea in my head, but instead of a sausage I decided to go to another all-american food choice for the concept.
I present to you….
Applesauce Pork Burgers
- 1/2 pound lean ground pork
- 1 small red apple, chopped
- 4 oz container unsweetened applesauce
- 1 1/2 tbsp raw sugar
- green onion
I combined all the ingredients and formed three patties. I grilled one on the george foreman, along with a couple of slices of apple. I placed the burger on a slice of whole wheat toast with Annie’s Organic Smoky Maple BBQ sauce. I topped the burger with the grilled slices of apple.
I highly suggest this burger to anyone who loves applesauce on their pork chops. It’s a tasty twist on a classic combo. I am very happy to submit this recipe for the secret ingredient this week. Thanks Care to Eat for letting me participate. I can’t wait to see what next week’s ingredient will be.
Along with my fabulous burger I had steamed broccoli + cauliflower
And 1/2 a microwaved baked potato. I could only eat 1/2 of this 1/2… the rest went to Abbie’s dinner bowl.
My landlord has been trying to get me to one of her arbonne ‘spa parties’ since I’ve moved here. Tonight I finally gave in and went. I’m not a fan of so called ‘spa parties.’ There was a time in college when my close circle of friends really got into throwing Mary Kay parties so I sadly got talked into going to one once a week for a while. The arbonne reminded me of Mary Kay, just not my cup of tea. Its cool that women who are really into it can get so much out of the company, but I think I still prefer to buy my cosmetics and skin products from Target. I know I’m a cheap bastard.
At the ‘spa party’ I had a sliver of pumpkin bread someone had made. It was very yummy and really made me want to make my own healthy version of pumpkin bread, maybe next week? We’ll see…
