Sunday Jan 22nd –
Church was a little different then usual for me since the translating wasn’t available.
I made do by reading a message on my phone and trying my best to focus on that and not the noise of German being spoke around me 😋
Once we were back in Velp we quickly stopped at the grocery store for a few things, since I’d kind of forgotten until late the night before, that when you have guests over you should probably also have dessert 😜
Mikes cousins were our guests for the afternoon and lunch was my typical Sunday fare if we eat at the apartment, taco salad.
I’d managed to whip up a Lazy Cheesecake for something sweet and we enjoyed that, and our company until late that afternoon.
I spent some time working on my lettering later that evening and then chatted with mother and father for a few moments before calling it a day.

The strong smell of our citrus couch cleaner may or may not have subconsciously effected that mornings drawing 😜🍋
Could it have effected the avocado with lemon and lemon pepper I prepared too???
Just realized how easily I could be manipulated😳
Anyways, I prepared rice, cream cheese salmon and carrots for supper… and we opted for Burger King instead 🙈
Turns out Mike felt like it and I’d felt like it earlier in the day and neither of us had said anything to the other but then it came out sooo we packed up the fish and headed out for a date night. Continue reading “Burger King Date Night > Salmon Fillet Supper”
I thought for sure that I had shared this recipe before but I guess not and it’s high time to remedy that issue!
I love this cheesecake style dessert for a number of reasons, it’s super simple and easy to whip up and tastes amazing as a dessert, snack or breakfast (preferably enjoyed with coffee at any of said times😉).
I’ve taken to calling it ‘lazy’ cheesecake because obviously enough, it’s super easy annnnd because I always forget the real name it goes by 😜
(Real name, Sopapillas Cheesecake)
2 pkgs refrigerated crescent rolls
2 pkgs (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

The day we forgot the water was being turned off 😬
There were notices posted around the building stating that on Tuesday, there would be no water and we took note and talked about it many times!
Only to wake up on Tuesday and go to run the water and be greeted by a sputtering nothing…
And we were out of coffee beans, so not the best morning around 😏
I heated up some milk and we had chia latte mix with some instant coffee for some sort of caffeine intake and I then settled in to write/edit pictures.
The water actually came back on around 2:00, though hot water didn’t follow until later but it was enough to feel like I could do a few things.
Like bake a lazy cheesecake 😁
You see, I don’t have a ton of dishes, so when I bake, a dish or two probably has to get rewashed and reused a few times during the baking process, thus needing water to bake.
The cheesecake turned out nicer then usual actually, the sugar and cinnamon topping becoming an even golden color over the entire thing👌🏻
I love this super easy cheesecake, (recipe will follow 😉) though it’s a bit on the sweet side so coffee would have been delicious with it 😕
