Wednesday Words

Happy Wednesday everyone! So the week is half over…excellent! My monster workout is over. I tried something new today (so unlike me!! haha) and I did a 30 minutes on the elliptical and then swam 1.5 miles. I know it doesn’t sound like a lot but believe me I was tired after it was all over. Is 1.5 miles a lot in a pool…truthfully I have no idea? I like swimming and I have always been a good swimmer so I thought I would spice it up today and try it out. I feel like I used some new and different muscles and that is always a good thing! Aside from my attractive goggle lines and my fabulous purple swim cap…I am a little hottie! I definitely kid!

Now I am drinking coffee and remembering the delicious dinner I made last night. I definitely don’t wish that was over! I got creative again and put a new spin on meatloaf! I like to make meatloaf because I think it is fun to experiment with different flavors. In case you missed my previous meatloaf creations they are:

And now I give you: Mustard Apple Meatloaf!

MUSTARD APPLE MEATLOAF

  • 2 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I actually used steel cut oats as  my binder)
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Turkey bacon, optional

Mix all ingredients together. (If using bacon…layer the peices over the top of the meatloaf and secure with toothpicks)Bake in a loaf pan at 375 degrees for 60-75 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink in the center. Dig in!

Do you like meatloaf? Do you have a creative recipe for me to try?

I end on a fun note! A few days ago on Nancy’s blog she had a fun little survey posted. I thought why not add it on my blog too! Please feel free to fill in your own answers in the comments. I think it would be fun read and learn more about you all!

  1. Bacon! Yes, yes, yes. 🙂 I think I’ve mentioned that I have only tried meatloaf once before and it was terrible. So I must try one of your recipes. My husband has been dying for some.

  2. Swimming is no joke! It looks so easy but it’s a great workout.

    I like the meatloaf recipe from the Eating for Life cookbook. It’s pretty standard but you add a pkt of Knorr’s seasoning…mmm….

  3. Swimming is really hard! 1.5 miles sounds like a lot to me!!

    Have a great Wednesday, Kelly!

  4. 1.5 miles is a LOT! Nice work!!

  5. I kind of miss having access to a lap pool! I am no swimmer, but it was a fun way to work it out a little from time to time…

  6. You go girl!! So glad that you went outside of your usual workout and went swimming. 😀

    • Thanks A! You know how routine I am…so I was proud of myself for actually stepping out of my exercise box. It was fun! Although I think it is funny that today is National Running Day and I didn’t run! haha…what are the odds?

  7. OK I’ll go first:

  9. Swimming is such a fun switcheroo. I love meatloaf, but I don’t have any fun recipes. I usually just throw a bunch of ingredients together and it always turns out great. I love your idea of pineapple meatloaf!

  10. Oh, that meatloaf sounds great Kelly! My husband would be sold on it because of the bacon. The combination of the apple sauce and the saltier flavors must be really good!!

  11. Ok, gotta try Glorias. You said it was good but to be the answer to favorite skyrockets it to the top of the try list. And your my bestie, too 🙂

  12. And I’m stealing this for my blog 🙂

  13. Kelly – you’re seriously Ironman ready. You should look into doing a triathlon at least. I bet you’d kick some serious butt.

  14. Heyy!! I totally have a purple Speedo swim cap and goggle lines after i swim too!!! No kidding. 🙂 I think those goggle lines (and sometimes the swim cap line) makes me proud…it’s the only remaining souvenir of a lovely long swim right? hehe

    Thats a gorgeous meatloaf!!!

  15. That meatloaf sounds fantastic. I’ve only ever tried meatloaf once in my life. I should be a good girlfriend and make some over the weekend.

  16. I just found out it was national running day today too, but today was supposed to be a cross training day… I think if I celebrate it one day late running won’t mind too much! 🙂

  17. Love your list! I always forget about meatloaf – it seems like such the dinner my mom would make. But your recipes sounds so different and delish I might need to give one a try. Hubby despises pineapple so that one is out (and it’s the one I wanted to try the most!). Thanks for sharing.

  18. Woo 1.5 miles in the pool is awesome! Nice work.

  19. i love learning more about bloggers…ill have to do this for a post later 🙂 as for meatloaves, i always manage to ruin the recipe even though it would probably be the easiest thing to make, i can still ruin it. story of my life.

  20. Horray for 1.5 miles in the pool! I tend to get stuck in a workout rut too…But when I do mix it up, I always feel so good!

    Your meatloaf recipes sound yummy!
