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
