So I’m spoiling the surprise a little. My Mom hasn’t gotten this yet because she was away this weekend and I know she reads my blog first thing, so surprise. I made cheesecake for Mother’s Day. I’ve never made cheesecake, and in all actuality this isn’t cheesecake but a cheesecake pie. All those married years baking and I never did it because I didn’t think I had a springform pan. Well, low and behold when leaving the old homestead did I find not one, but two springform pans. A regular and individual size. But, this recipe comes from that great new pie book I got at the library, which by the way I liked so much I went on Half.com today and got for…..drumroll….$0.75. It’s an ex-library copy, so not only is it pre-used, it is benefiting a library as well.
Then my girls had surprises for me too. There were the pretty little packages from the ceramics group they did at Kilby’s Creamery, (cow to cone in two days) our favorite place for the cows, the ice cream and the arts.
And I know this is a really horrid picture, but I just took it last minute to show you the gift I had hidden in the garage for me this morning. My darling daughters told my Grandmother how I was sad that I had to leave my rosebush at the old house when I left the husband and wanted to get me one. Well, that’s all you have to say and here is my second Mother’s Day present. They could barely contain their excitement.
