White Wednesday Wishes

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday. The sky today in Kuwait was white instead of brilliant blue like it has been for the past many days. Makes for a blah day.

But it's been a busy and productive day. I made Snowballs(Mexican wedding cookies; Russian teacakes; sandtarts) -- this cookie goes by so many different names. For today, let's call them Snowballs.

Blogging buddy Dee Dee posted a recipe for Oatmeal Scotchies. Unfortunately, I couldn't find butterscotch chips so just used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead. The consensus from the kids is that they are great.

Also, twice now, I've seen a post for toasted or fried ravioli. First, when I was visiting blogging buddy Linda (click on her name and it will take you right to her ravioli post)and then today at Skip to My Lou. I don't normally fry foods, but thought I should give this a try. Let me tell you, it is really, really good. The kids loved it. Would be great for an appetizer or party hors d'oeuvres. I made zucchini soup to go along with the ravioli and that was our dinner.

A few more whites below. A quotable mug from Leslie (who also crocheted the purse I showed yesterday). I love quotations.

Another friend at school gave me this monogrammed tote that I can use when I go grocery shopping.

For my living room, I used an old carved wooden bowl and a swag that was on my front door last year, placed white candles in the middle and have a nice little centerpiece for the holidays.

I am loving this latest dishcloth pattern as it is so easy and pretty. I can't tell you how many I've made in so many different colors so far.

It's getting close to bedtime so I need to finish tidying everything up so I can hit the hay. Happy Holiday Wishes! Tammy

Fried ravioli, oh yum...I love that type of pasta.

Lovely crocheted dish cloths, very nice pattern to those.

You are always getting so much done! The cookies look delicious and I'm thinking fried ravioli sounds pretty tasty.
Have a wonderful holiday.

My sister makes those snowball cookies every year and I'm always so anxious to eat a bunch of them that I inhale the powdered sugar like an idiot, coughing and trying to catch my breath!

Merry Christmas to you and your family! Enjoy the day, it comes but once a year!!

Love the tote, the dishclothes and the centerpiece!! Very, very pretty indeed.
The cold we've been having...gone during daytime! It was blue, warm and sunny today. Good thing we still have cold and windy nights...they make it feel very Christmas-y.
Have a wonderful day ahead!

Your break from work seems to be very relaxing. I am loving the fact that you are having time to bake, craft, blog and simply enjoy yourself. The wedding cookies I made last week are gone, thank goodness, as they are too good to have in the house without eating them... I love the tote you got from the friend at work. What a great idea!! Your dishclothes are beautiful!! One of these days, I want to learn to crochet, and you can teach me how to make them!!
Enjoy your day!!
