Finished my three hour training stint....uphill treadmill, followed by boot camp, and then personal training session. Was tortured at physical therapy, then home to soak for a bit. Now I'm laying in my adjustable Sleep Number bed, Giada on in the background, and I want to share a serious comfort food I made last week, but healthy version of course. It is a combination of a recipes from The Chew and Ellie Krieger. It is Bomb!!
