Tonight there was a special presentation by Apple Crumble’s very own chef  TED!  With just a little guidance, Ted cooked a terrific dish for his sister Debbie and brother Richard.  Here is his dish which, from the sounds of delight coming from the dining room, was a great hit.

Turkey Corn Casserole by Ted


  • 1 lb Ground Turkey
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 15 oz can of Sweet Corn
  • 1 1/2  cups Homemade pasta sauce (you will have to see the post Ms. K’s Spaghetti Sauce for that one).
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 Butternut squash

Cook butternut squash in microwave for about 10 minutes. Slice and remove insides, toss away the seeds, put the cooked squash in a bowl.

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Cook the turkey on the stove top with the 1 tsp garlic in 2 TBS olive oil until done.  Add the corn and the pasta sauce and put into a casserole dish.  Spread the cooked squash on top and bake for 30 minutes, or until bubbling on the sides.


You can add any veggie you like to this dish such as peas, green beans, carrots… what’s your favorite?

As for me, I was busy tonight with tomorrow morning’s goodies.  Apple Crumbles has a cake for a dedication to Veterans and also a cookie bouquet.  Check  tomorrow to see the results of such baking fun.

Pleasant dreams all!

A Berry Good Breakfast

Happy Tuesday.  Quick post as I’m running late.

Last nights DVD was “The Lodger”.  It was a good movie. Nothing more than 2 1/2 stars but not too bad. The story line focuses on a serial killer imitating Jack The Ripper killings.  You continue to guess “who did it” throughout the movie.

DSCN1083The workout today was legs. Glorious legs.  4 sets x 12 reps.

  • Walking lunges and Leg Press
  • Dead Lifts and Led Curls
  • Leg Extensions and Seated Calf raises
  • Squats

The warm up was 32 minutes of ET. The post aerobic activity was a 42 minute walk-jog with Shane.

Today’s breakfast.

  • A Raspberry Delight Spiru-Tein Whey Shake: It had a wonderful strong smell of raspberry but was really disappointing when tasted. It lacked flavor.
  • 1/2 a grapefruit, 2 juicy strawberries, 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats with cinnamon and raisins.  

DSCN1085Everyone…have a super Tuesday.
