What an unusual year 2021 was for us. First we had the heat and drought of Summer followed by torrential rain and floods of Fall. Now we're experiencing record breaking low temperatures and snowfall.
We hope for better things to come in 2022.
Today the sun shone even if it didn't rise above freezing. Some paths were shoveled both in the front and back yard. Bird feeders needed filling and my bunny needed attention. (She is quite comfortable in her cozy house with a warming bulb overhead.)
I baked a Date Square and added the last of the cranberry sauce to the date filling. I think it adds a lovely tang to what can be an overly sweet filling. Then I made a Cheesecake, the kind that is whipped up in a few minutes and has exactly 3 ingredients ( besides the graham crust). If you're interested the filling asks for a pkg. of cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and most of a container of Cool Whip. Once you've got the cream cheese and sugar well mixed you fold in the Cool Whip and that's it. There's an on-going debate around here which is better....baked cheesecake or unbaked. The former is more work and calls for more ingredients so you know which one I';m more apt to make.
We'll be spending our New Years Eve quietly at home the way we've done for many years. Do you have any special way to celebrate?
Here are a few pictures that my dear DIL took today. (I still haven't figured out getting my pictures onto my blog with this new computer).
Thanks for coming by, Granny M.
