Then I came home and made cookies, because that is just what you do to make yourself feel better about anything right?

Monday, I woke up STILL sounding like a smoker and had THIS workout to do. Fitzoner is a benchmark workout at GPP and it is one I love to fear.

I took the night off of Attack and made dinner instead with a side of bachelorette.
BLUEBERRY TURKEY BURGERS
- 1.5 pds of lean ground turkey
- 2 eggs
- 1 small sweet potato shredded
- 1/2 C. Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Mix all ingredients together into a bowl using your hands. (I know its sick, but kind of fun at the same time)

It may not be a cure for a sore throat and it does absoluteley nothing for my mufasa hair, but a burger fresh off the grill is good for the soul.
We decided to have some corn on the cob for a side and grill a peach for dessert but were so surprised how good our burgers were we completely forgot about the grill for awhile.
Question of the day:
