As you are reading this….
….bhg is in the house.
At this point I’ve told you….the general population of Wal-Mart….my entire county….the guy at the gas station….my sunday school class….
….and a few random assorted people at Hobby Lobby.
I might be just a little excited.
I had big plans for the day.
Big…..I’m telling you.
Like when it was time for lunch here at Thistlewood…..this is what I was going to be serving them…..
……Cherry Cheesecake in a Jar.
Easy and simple and looks exactly what you should be serving people that come to Kentucky from much fancier places to visit your home with cameras.
There are days when I’m a whole lot of talk and not enough action.
I was hanging stockings and cutting fresh greenery and cleaning the back porch and sewing pillows….and I did spend a considerable amount of time discussing evergreens and the new season of Downton Abbey with everyone in the produce section of Wal-Mart.
And I totally forgot to make it.
Now…. tomorrow is here…and so is bgh.
And there’s nothing for lunch…..
…..good thing we have that famous gas station pizza.
In case gas station pizza isn’t on your menu…..here’s the mason jar recipe just for you.
Cherry Cheesecake In a Jar
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tub of Cool Whip
1 stick of margarine, melted
1 cup of sugar
1 can cherry pie filling
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup of chopped nuts (optional)
4 small mason jars
1. Mix cracker crumbs and melted margarine.
2. Press mixture onto the bottom of each of the mason jars.
3. Mix cream cheese and sugar.
Spread over crumbs in jars.
4. Fill rest of the jar by layering cherry pie filling and Cool Whip.
On the last layer…..add a cherry on top and sprinkle extra graham cracker crumbs on last layer of whipped cream.
Chill before serving.
Makes four servings.
I’ll be back tomorrow with all the details.
The uncensored….uncut version of Christmas and bhg in January.
