If you know me, I love a ‘fussy dessert’ that is relatively low maintenance. Cheesecake is THAT dessert in my book. Sure, are there a few steps involved in this creamy, delicious dessert? Yes. However, with a little make-ahead planning, this dessert will be the star of your spread any time of the year.
Last night I was frosting and filling the layers of a cake you’ll be seeing on here next week. My daughter loves to be in the kitchen, especially when there is frosting involved. Sometimes as a Mom, you forgo the perfection in things (this cake having 6 layers) for your children’s happiness, right? So we left the 6th layer out of the cake and she got to make her own mini cake. We didn’t get to bed until almost 9:30 p.m. but it was worth it. No school today either!
We’re off to handle chores and check in on some pigs that are due to farrow (have babies) this week. Cherry D, OINK and Diamond are all ready to go in the warm farrowing house. They are in their crates and we’ve got heat lamps over black mats for the piglets to head to when they are born to keep warm. It is blustery and pretty brutal here today, boy do I miss the summer-show pig-nonsense.
Cookie Dough will farrow in a month.
This picture is still one of my favorites of last year. I can’t wait until the grass is green (minus the mowing) and the weather is warm.
Have a great weekend, and as usual, I hope you get to do something fun with the people who mean most to you.
