This Weeks Recommendations

1. Hot Toddy. I've felt like I'm fighting a cold so when we went out to dinner with Missy & Jon, I ordered this drink. Ahhh, it was steaming hot and the honey and lemon coat your throat so good! Here's a good recipe we use at home:

1.5 ounces Bourbon
1 ounce Honey
1/3 ounce Lemon Juice
3 ounces Water (Hot)

Warm the honey and lemon juice for about half a minute in microwave and then to add hot water and the bourbon.

2. Peppermint Joe Joe's (from Trader Joes). They're only here for the holidays... so hurry. And stock up.

3. The Five A's. We mentor some of the young couples who go through Rock Harbor's premarital class. We thought that since we keep them accountable to doing The Five A's each night, that we should do it ourselves. It's really a cool thing and is helpful in bringing up things you might not think to talk about. Here they are:
-Affirmation (I appreciated it today when you...)
-Affection (A hug, kiss, snuggling, massage, etc)
-Apology (Is there any way I irritated, frustrated, or hurt you today?)
-Ask (Is there anything you would like me to do today, tomorrow, or this week?)
-Amen (Ask your spouse if there's anything specific you can pray for them. End in prayer.)
