This and That!

I forgot to show you the picture of the sweet Easter banner I purchased from Lesley at Small Meadow Press. I just love the beautiful simplicity of her designs. You probably will have to enlarge the picture to see.

All I can say is, YUM! Cherry Cream Cheese Pie is the first dessert I learned to make as a young girl. It is so easy to do and tastes absolutely delicious~ it has always been a family favorite around here!
Cherry Cream Cheese Pie
1 graham cracker crust
1 can cherry pie filling
1 block cream cheese
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons vanilla
Cream together softened cream cheese, eagle brand milk, lemon juice and vanilla. Pour into pie shell and refrigerate. When pie is "set" pour cherry pie filling on top~ that's it!

Finally, here is the newest addition to our back porch! When we purchased it I had visions of me lounging around with a book in one hand and lemonade in the other. I plan on doing a little of that this weekend, if Bailey decides to share;) Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!
Much love,
Susan P.

Well, I was over at Kelli's visiting this morning, and saw the sweet comment you left her, and I feel that way about you!!!! You make everything so pretty and special for your family, too! Can I come to your house????

I hope you enjoy your porch sitting with a lemonade, and plate of that yummy looking cherry cream cheese pie, a book, AND a Bailey in your lap, I'm sure! Very pretty lounge chair. I'd love to be out there with you!

Enjoy your week-end!

Oh, Susan, I love this pie. I used to make it a lot when I was first married, and my oldest daughter likes to make it now. And I think Bailey much appreciates his new chair; he might let you have a corner! ;o)

Ahh, I can just imagine relaxing in that lovely chaise with a favorite book in hand. Well, maybe a piece of pie in hand instead. :)

I'm so excited to have found the pie recipe! My mother-in-law used to make this for my husband when he was young, and I have lost the recipe. Now my hubby will be so happy when I surprise him.
