thanksgiving weekend





Every year, as my contribution to Thanksgiving dinner, I make my specialty cheesecakes. It's not like I have a choice in the matter. I'm always told, "This is what you're bringing and nothing else." Good thing Thanksgiving only comes once a year (unless you celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving followed by the American Thanksgiving holiday)! These cheesecakes are not overly sweet (I've reduced the amount of sugar in my recipes) and I try to use ingredients with 'less fat'...but hey, this is cheesecake, so either way, diabetics beware!


Things I'm thankful for this holiday weekend:
-spending time with family and friends
-my little brother coming up to the Island to be with us :) I love that kid!!!
-deer grazing in our frontyard
-my wonderful husband
-gorgeous sunsets
-living on such a beautiful island

:) Thanks for popping by my blog, Northern Mom! Glad to see a fellow Northerner out there!

BTW, I almost never eat the cakes or other sweets I make! I try not to eat desserts, but I do love baking! The fundraising organizers love me! LOL!

Christine:

Thanks for stopping by my blog “Headlines On Things That Matter” and commenting.

Those cheesecakes look great. Did you post the recipes? I make them also but not as fancy … yes I cook too. Yes, I also reduce the amount of sugar and cream cheese to give it the more German/European flavor and no sour cream.

I am wondering if you have any problems getting the berries during November?

Happy Holidays

Hi Providian! I have no problems with the berries in November, as I pick the berries from our garden in the summer, put them in plastic baggies, and pop them into the freezer for the winter time! :) I had more berries than I could pick this season, so one of our freezers has nothing but produce from my garden!

I'll post the recipes soon!
