Hello Friends and Happy Good Fri-Yay!
I trust you all had a wonderful week despite the fact that Tuesday was Tax Day. Unfortunately, we owe money to Uncle Sam so at 7:00 p.m. I was in line at the Post Office mailing in a payment. Oh well, it could be worse so I am not going to complain too loudly about it.
Saturday I went to Home Depot and purchased patio cushions for the deck furniture and a new Pressure Washer, something we desperately needed, stay tuned for an unsolicited product review. Oh and I finally received my “Blogger” license plate – I am super excited and proud to advertise my blog daily across two states.
This weekend the weather won’t be as nice, but we will be outside cleaning out the garage and shoveling mulch…thank goodness it’s not snow!

Have a blessed weekend!
By now, most of you know that I am a self-proclaimed “Crock Pot Queen” and very seldom do I do any baking. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth and most of my cakes have been flops. However, this week I decided to try a no-bake Cheesecake and I must admit that it was easy breezy good!
- 1 package of mini Ready Crust Graham Cracker Crusts
- 1 – 8 oz package of cream cheese – softened
- 1 – 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1 can cherry pie filling
I had hubby take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator several hours before I got home to ensure it was room temperature soft. Put the cream cheese in a bowl along with the sweetened condensed milk and beat with a hand mixer until fluffy.
Stir in 1/3 cup of lemon juice
Spoon Cream Cheese mixture into Graham Cracker Crusts
Chill at least 3 hours in the refrigerator, then enjoy! Didn’t I tell you it was easy breezy!
What is your favorite no-bake dessert, and no, Oreo cookies don’t count!
Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday
‘Ole Man Winter is finally giving up with temps rising every day this week, by Good Friday all the snow should be melted. Yesterday schools dismissed early so kids in the neighborhood had a chance to play in the snow, 1 house even made a family of snow people including a dog, it was so cute.
I miss not having little guys anymore and hate to see kids that are too attached to electronics. I’ve seen toddlers in grocery carts playing with their parent’s iPhones or iPads. I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to go outside and play! Growing up we were up and out early riding bikes, jumping Double Dutch, playing Jacks, BoxBall, Hop Scotch, Red Light Green Light 1-2-3, Freeze Tag, all kinds of outside games.
I truly miss those times – what were some of your favorite childhood games?
