Sorry this is going to be a quickie, Charlie just walked in the door. My poor guy ended up working late and then he was sweet enough to pickup something at the grocery store for me. I needed one ingredient to make the strawberry sauce for the cheesecake.
I started with a delicious bowl of oatmeal after my 6.6 mile run in the great outdoors this morning. Then it was off to the gym for my weekly babysitting shift.
Lunch was a salad – red pepper, tomato, zucchini, summer squash, jicama, avocado, balsamic and a dash of salt.
I also consumed some soaked oats mixed with plain greek yogurt, cinnamon, 1/2 a pear and 1/2 a peach.
I gotta get my grains and oats work best for me.
Then it was cheesecake baking time.
D passed the time with some computer action.
He didn’t want to stop looking at the screen long enough for me to snap a shot.
I followed the King Arthur Flour recipe for an original cheesecake. Here is the crust.
All pressed in the pan. It is not the traditional graham cracker crush but more of a pie dough variety.
All the cheesecake goods.
The finished product sans the strawberry sauce that I have yet to make. I am serving it on the side per their request.
I whipped up something fun for myself tonight. I made a cinnamon apple topping for my vanilla frozen yogurt.
I cooked a peeled, cored and chopped apple in a nonstick pan until it was soft but not mushy. I added cinnamon at the end of the cooking process.
It was so tasty and simple to make.
That is it my friends. I have a little monkey that needs to get to bed. I hope you had a fabulous day. See you tomorrow.
