WOW! Where has the time went?!?!?
Only a little more than a week until Christmas!!!!! YIKES!!!
Do you have everything done yet???
In fact, I’ve been so busy with the “day job” that I JUST finished decorating the Christmas Tree!! Like – a few hours ago finished!!! UGH.
At least the presents are “in the works”. Not finished – but at least I’m making progress. That’s something – right???? 😉
However, three of them have actually been “in the works” for almost a year now! I guess that kinda deflates that “making progress” balloon, huh??? 🙂
Going to work before sunrise, and getting home after dark, with a day filled with strenuous activity outdoors (in nasty cold weather) doesn’t leave you very motivated in the evenings to do much! A hot meal, a hot bath and curling up under some warm blankets while calling it a day is about it!!
I’m ready for Spring!!
How about you?????
In the mean time…..
Here’s a quick recipe I thought you might like to try if you are in a hurry for a last-minute get-together:
Super Simple Cheesecake
2 blocks of cream cheese (do NOT use low-fat) – softened
2 cups of powdered sugar (sifted)
16 oz tub of Cool Whip
2 1/4 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sugar
9 Tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
To make the crust:
Mix your graham cracker crumbs, your sugar, your melted butter, and cinnamon until well blended. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
To make the filling:
Mix the cream cheese with mixer until smooth. Then add the powdered sugar one cup at a time and mix until smooth. Add in the entire tub of cool whip and mix until smooth.
****Please do not add items out of this order or your mixture will be lumpy.
Put it in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving.
When ready to serve: drizzle with chocolate, or sprinkle with nuts and caramel, or add your favorite pie filling on the top. 🙂
Have a piece for me!!!
