Colorado Table

My favorite apple concoction is apple pie a la mode. While I love to occasionally indulge on the real deal, I scratch the cinnamon-apple and cream itch with my healthier individual inside-out apple crumbles! It’s a baked apple with the crumble cozily tucked away on the inside of the apple where the core used to be. I love individual desserts because they feel a smidge fancy. They also have their own portion control built right in. What a perfect way to celebrate fall.

Tomatoes are so meaty and satisfying that I’m sure everyone — even die-hard carnivores — will be happy to see a slice or two of this pie set down for lunch, maybe with a simple green salad on the side. And picnickers take note: This tart happens to be as scrumptious served at room temperature as it is hot right out of the oven.

Tomato lovers wait for this moment all year, that moment when the plants in the garden are struggling under the weight of those gorgeous red (or yellow or orange or even green) orbs, and the tables at the farmers markets threaten to buckle under the load. We slice and eat them as fast as we can, but we still can’t keep up. Nor can we ever get enough.

Ten years ago next Monday, the storm was two days’ past. Whole neighborhoods had all but disappeared under water that was still flowing in through failed levees. Thousands were stranded. No power. No running water. Food and drink in short supply.

If you don’t wish to grill them, the burgers can be cooked in a lightly oiled skillet or under the broiler for roughly the same amount of time. There is a sauce that goes along with these burgers, but you are welcome to use plain old mustard or ketchup if you prefer. I wish for world peace, and for more people to like turkey burgers. Today I’ll start with turkey burgers.
