A White Christmas Lunch

After school today, I went to my friend Shereen's for lunch.
It was obvious right away that she decided to make this a white Christmas.
Lunch was a potato and feta patty along with a warm orzo salad with tomatoes, olive, pine nuts and parsley and a balsamic/olive oil dressing. Yum!
Green tea, shortbread cookies and stollen for dessert.
Early Christmas presents.
And a beautiful sunset to end the day.
Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday too!

I just love a white Christmas. But, as you can guess not in this house. Plus, it's pouring out, not a flake yet either. I really want some snow for some new ideas to take pictures of. Have a great holiday season.

Shereen has the gift for hospitality. Everything looks so beautiful and the food sounds delicious. I'm drinking a cup of green tea as I read ... would you mind passing one of those cookies my way? ;)

Dear Tammy...It was, indeed, a super day today.Your lunch sounded great and the sunset was the perfect, non-caloric dessert. Shereen always makes you terrific lunches.

Dearest Tammy,

That was quite a 'treasure' day for you! The lunch looks yummy and I am amazed that you too have stollen! We enjoyed it together with daughter Liz the other day. It even is now available here at TJ Maxx locally. We got ours from Atlanta from World Market Cost Plus.
Have another happy day today.
Love to you,

Mariette

If I ever make it to see you in Kuwait, I want to meet Shereen. Her decorating style and presentation of food is just amazing. I am sure it was a very relaxing, enjoyable afternoon. Good luck getting your own home decorated. I am guessing you are off from school for a few weeks now. ENJOY!!!

XOXO

Hi Tammy
thanks for the comment on Bertie and the platform.
One of my cat, Willow, I call my workroom buddy as she waits for me at the bottom of the stairs and then when I start going up she rushes up before me. She is so nosey and keeps trying to get into the bins and push the flip top lid open to the box I keep my notelets in because she knows there may be scellotape in there. What the fascination with scellotape is I don't know it may have a fishy smell or something. these animals are so clever.....,
Snowing here at the moment and very,very cold.
