Ravioli and Photo Tag

Guess what mom discovered?
That this kidney girl can have ricotta cheese and we already knew that I could have oonies!
Well, that's what ravioli is, right?Mom NEVER shares ravioli with us because it's one of her very favorite meals in the whole wide world and she's STINGY!
She must be in a very good mood because lookie what we got!
OMG, they were worth waiting for!
We got tagged by both Dave of the Army of Four and Sonic to open our first photo folder, scroll down to the 10th photo, post that photo and tell the story behind it, then tag 5 more bloggers.

Our first folder is called ABB and it stands for Art By Butterfly. When our artist friend, Miss Barbara, was selling paintings on ebay, ABB was her ebay ID. Mom just loves her work and she used to snag lots of pictures of her paintings because she couldn't afford them all and she wanted to enjoy them.
This painting is of an Airedale at the Brandt Point lighthouse and Brandt Point lighthouse just happens to be on Nantucket, our favorite summer vacation spot!We're going to break the rules and tell you that this is a lot of fun so if you want to play, please do so!

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Oh yum! That ravioli looks delish and of course we love ricotta cheese too. We're glad your mom decided to share. Your expressions look very intense! We like the Airedale picture.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Well we know for a fact that D went to the farmers market on Sunday morning and bought a tub of fresh ravioli filled with ricotta, proscuitto and pecorino. Do you think we'll get to see any of that? Nooooo probably not hehe.

Ruby and Penny said...

Ravioli sounds so yummy.
Love Ruby & Penny
Pees - we love your St. Patty's header

Mack said...

That Barbara is an amazing artist!
And that ravioli looks like heaven on earth!

Gus said...

Yes, we are in the Ravenous for Ravioli fan club too. We like the ones that muzzer brings back from St. Loulis a lot, and the local ones ain't bad either. Do you get sauce? We don't usually, but we like the one with browned butter and walnuts that comes on the mushroomy ones.


Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

Yummers!! You think our Mom would let us have some - it looks delish.

Fred said...

Love that painting and love the bank, too! They are nice to share their biscuits!

Life With Dogs said...

LOL! You two look like you just discovered peanut butter in that pic!

Sonic said...

That's such a nice painting! And I haven't had ravioli either...


Dexter said...

Hey! I sometimes see comments from you guys on Mischka the German Airedale's blog. I use Google Translate to read his blog. I must say that I do enjoy the missteps that it makes sometimes. I've been also using it to leave comments, but try to keep my sentences simple. I actually won the German award in high school but that was 10,000 years ago.

I get comments from Mischka which are great! Just thought I would suggest the google translate if you aren't already using it.

The Army of Four said...

Mmmm... I can have pasta, but not cheese. Maybe I could have empty ravioli?
Great job with the tag - what a gorgeous painting!
Play bows,

Martine said...

Ravioli!?!?! YUMMM YUMMMMERS!!

We are glad your mom shared!

TwoSpecialWires said...

YUM! We just checked. We've got the pasta AND the ricotta on the pantry shelf and in the fridge. Now we just have to convince Moma that ravioli should be the Number One Priority today. Maybe she'll be convincible. She DID go look to see what the number ten photo in the number one folder was ... and it brought a big smile. Trouble is, it also reminded her that one of her "goals" is to get the photos on the 'puter organized. We're guessing we'll probably be left watching the snow melt and imagining the tastiness of ravioli. (That's better than nothing. And maybe we'll get lucky.)

Happy new week!

Holy ravioli, Maggie and Mitch! Lookit how much you are lovin' that nummy stuff. I have been thinking back in my mind and I don't think I have ever hads ravioli! I will make sure and get mom to put it on the grocery list. Oh, and I likes that painting. It's very pretty and happy.

Wiggles & Wags,

Sue said...

You two sure eat well. Tonight we're having shrimp on our dinner. Mom's eyes were bigger then her tummy, so guess who gets the leftovers.

We also like ravioli and lasagna.

snoopydogknits said...

Delicious ravioli! You are two very lucky airedales. Oscar asked me to tell you that he really does enjoy snails. He's been finding lots of them in the garden. Nice and crunchy on the outside, with a squishy centre :) Ros

Martha said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch
We have never tasted ravioli! You guys may have a stingy mom but she is better than ours!!!
We just loved that painting of the airedale.
love and kisses

Yay on the ravioli - Phantom just loves any kind of pasta, even if he can't have the sauce.

That is a beautiful painting. We wish we could go to Nantucket - you always seem to have so much fun there.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

That ravioli looks exactly like what is missing from my diet!
I need some too! And cheese- I need cheese.
The painting at the Brandt Point lighthouse is awsome. And it looks like some doggys that i know, and their initials are m&m

Bocci said...

Yummy! That ravioli looks delish. don't think I've ever had the pleasure, but I know that it's one of Parental Unit's favorite dishes when she goes out to eat (without me).
And yes, that painting is beautiful, especially the doggie part!

Your buddy,

Oskar said...

I'd like to play along, but my mom persons old computer machine died & she doesn't have most of the pictures transferred over yet.

Those ravioli look droolicious!

Unknown said...

Hey you ravioli-eating-rule breakers! How did it taste??? I loved playing tag too.

Golden Samantha said...

Nom nom - never had ravioli, but looking forward to my first tastes heheh! And that painting is just bootiful - we know Barbara is a fave!

Ina in Alaska said...

About 300 years ago when our mom was a young girl she called raviolis oonies too!! What a funny coincidence!!! xoxo Toby Ginger Jeter & Halle

Stardust said...

Since mom loves Ravioli that much, does she have a recipe?

I LOVE the painting! It is really difficult to paint anything other than still life, I think the painting is amazing!

Oreo said...

HEy Mitch and Maggie
I am so jealous, you get ravioli!! I dont get all that good stuff here. It just isnt fair. Can I come nad live with you?? Your pictures are just too cute, it must be the airdale thing!! :-)


Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

What a pawsome post! So lucky that you got raviolli! You sure look like you both enjoyed it.

McGillicutty said...

Maggie and Mitch!

RAV-I-OL-I? What's that? I know so many foods, me can't hardly believe that me mom has never fed us THAT treat or that we have never counter-surfed (STOLEN) that treat! It looks YUMMY!!!!!! The painting was pawsome, but I'm still stuck of that treat that made you guys so excited you were almost cross-eyed! GOTTA get some of that!

Okay, now because I'm new to this compuawter stuff. I need to know how to "tag" someone. I found #10 in me folder... very interesting, but I don't know what to do next. I'm a big Irish Blogging Ignoramus! I'm not good at the compuawter stuff----ooof and Photoshop??! TOTALLY over me head!!!

Come back to me site and see the Barkday cards. I FINALLY figured out how to load them so I can share them with the rest of the world!!!

Irish Love,

TwoSpecialWires said...

Guess what we got to eat last night? Homemade cannellonis with ricotta cheese! Yummmm! We loved them and now have convinced Moma this needs to happen more often! You guys are GREAT!

So grateful,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Toffee said...

mmmm ravioli.

Just came by to say hello...I am sorry that we have been bad bloggie friends - I blame it on mom's new work schedule.

Glad to see that you are well.

Pedro said...

Oh wow! I'd like to have some raviolis!!


Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Dear Maggie - I am never allowed cheese let alone ravioli!

White Dog Blog said...

Ravioli is ALMOST as good as cheesecake! Hope you enjoyed...a LOT! Thanks for stopping by my blog and helping the cause of Eskie Rescue on my mom's birthday! You have kind hearts!

Stanislaw said...

Do you do a low phosphorous/high protein diet for your kidneys, Maggie? We never knew about any of that before we started raw, and it seems like plain ol' raw feasts did the trick for my brother, so we don't worry about a kidney diet for him. But we've read some really good things about the low phosphorous diet.

Enjoy your ravioli feastables! My dad likes to call those "pierogies" and I think they are majorly tasty!!

Dewey Dewster said...

Gee Gram doesn't share ravioli with us either but not because she just loves's way too messy fer doggies....

Where have I heard that excuse before???? Hope yer all well....

Dewey Dewster returns...

CoCo said...

Amber and Nala said...
