It's also a reminder for me to finish my "Love is Patient" cross stitch and "Love is Patient" Prisma colored pencil project.
Love IS patient, but really! I do need to and will get back on task this week.

It's their second annual health issue - visit their website and get your copy. Healthy can still be tasty though -- be sure to check out the Date Kisses on page 51, a low sugar cocoa mix on page 60, and slow cooker potato soup on page 18.

Once upon a time, we believed the world was flat --
That beyond a certain point, there would be nowhere to go.
And though we now know the world is round,
we still fear falling off imaginary edges,
too often thinking there is only so far we can stretch,
so hard we can push.
But the most dangerous limits are those in our own head.
When you feel you're at your edge, look again --
You can go farther.

Cost: $9.99 at Whole Foods
Number of teabags: 36
Type of tea: Red Herbal
Steeping time: Per label 5-7 minutes, I did 7
Add ins: Silk Fat Free Almond milk and 1/2 package of Stevia
Teabag fragrance: Almond with a hint of coconut
Ingredients: Certified Kosher pareve rooibos, natural almond, coconut and macaroon flavoring
Opinion: While it didn't taste exactly like a macaroon cookie, it was a very delightful blend of toasted almonds and coconut flavors. It helps that I find rooibos tea a little on the sweet side, so I really didn't need to add much more sweetener. And I thought the almond milk kicked it up another nutty notch. If you like almonds, you will really like this tea.

I ordered the Southwest Green Chile cheeseburger (the cheese covers, holds and protects green chile sauce - genius!), hubby got one of the Mardi Gras specials, a muffaletta. Both yummy, both inhaled, hence no photo.
Apricot Peach iced tea! Oh. My. Goodness. No sweetener necessary. I could save the carbs for the desserts! I drank two of these huge glasses. They also had Papaya Mint, along with regular iced tea.
And the desserts! How to choose?! They had THREE different triple-layered cakes. Cookies, brownies... And this peach cobbler -- didn't even need ice cream. They warmed it up. So good, I nearly slid under the table. Hubby got the gingersnap cookie - large, sugared, crispy.

Since 2004, the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement has been educating millions of women on the urgent truths of heart disease.
The fact is: More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. Unfortunately, this killer isn't as easy to see and is often silent, hidden and misunderstood. Go Red For Women works to spread life-saving truths about heart disease and fund lifesaving research - all which can make the difference between life and death. Learn more at www.GoRedForWomen.org
Once again Macy's is having a Wear Red Sale to raise funds and awareness for Go Red For Women. Beginning Wednesday, Feb. 1, through Sunday, Feb. 5, 2012, customers who wear red will receive all-day savings throughout the store.
Customers not wearing red can purchase a Red Dress pin for $2.00 and receive the all-day savings.
If you have a Facebook or Twitter account, from Feb. 1 through Feb. 14, 2012 for every Valentine conversation heart sent through Macy's Facebook page and for every Tweet or reTweet of #heart and @Macy's, Macy's will donate $2 to Go Red For Women, up to $250,000.

This week - Allegro Pomegranate Green tea, with cranberry!Cost: $3.49 on sale at Whole Foods (regular price $3.99)
Number of teabags: 20
Type of tea: Green
Steeping time: 4 minutes
Add ins: I tried Stevia and fat free half and half, then just honey, then only Stevia.
Teabag fragrance: Fruity-cranberry!
Ingredients: Organic Chinese green tea, natural pomegranate and cranberry flavors, with other (?) natural flavors.
Opinion: Strong anticipation (green tea! pomegranate! cranberry!), only weakened in the end. A bit blah. I even let it steep longer, but without any bump-up in flavor. Its fragrance is stronger than the taste. As I was writing this post, I was at Starbucks and gave them two bags to try in a Grande tea latte for me. It was overpowered by the milk! Hmmf!
