Chewed Cable And Recipe

You'll never guess why our TV wasn't working.

The cable for the satellite runs along the outside of our house, and about six inches of it shows on the corner of our porch.

I was wondering why Harvey spent so much time on the porch.

That's right, he chewed the cable almost in half. No wonder it wasn't working.

Thankfully we had bought some sort of protection plan without knowing it, so the satellite company replaced the wire at no extra charge.

This is getting a little ridiculous, no? That sidebar list is coming soon.

I got a few things baked last Friday, but not nearly as much as I wanted to. Derek and I had a great weekend seeing extended family for Christmas - I'll tell you about it as soon as I have time to write a real post! It was a great weekend, but there was no time to get caught up n baking, so I'm planning on doing more tomorrow.

I'm just going to end this post by sharing the recipe of one of my favorite Christmas cookies - Snowdrop cookies! Because of their white appearance my husband fondly refers to them as Snowman droppings, but they are fabulous and pretty easy to make, so if you have a chance this week, give them a try!

Here's the recipe:

Snowdrop Cookies

2 egg whites
¾ tsp. cream of tartar
¾ c. sugar
1 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Take out the oven racks and place foil over them before heating. Leave racks out of oven. Beat egg whites with hand mixer until foamy. Add cream of tartar; beat until stiff. Slowly beat in sugar; beat until stiff. Add chocolate chips. Place by teaspoon on foil-covered racks and put racks in oven. Turn oven OFF. Leave overnight.
