Not a flattering photo, yet the cheesecake is made! I tried to make a big letter “T” on the top for the one who requested this. Tomorrow is the day we celebrate Thomas’ 12th year of jumping into his Earth Suit! We’ll top this with shaved dark chocolate or wild blueberries tomorrow! Hope to be finished tomorrow with the blog post dedicated to Thomas.
I should have sweet dreams tonight as I kinda make a wee mess when using the hand mixer. Cheesecake in my hair and all over my night shirt.
On another note … Going to the grocery store at 9:00 at night is a great non-crowded time to go!!
It is indeed yummy! A no bake version and I use coconut sugar instead of white sugar; which gives it a beautiful tan color!
I have been using coconut sugar in place of white sugar for at least 3 or more years. Works beautifully and so much better for us than processed white sugar. It has a hint of a brown sugar flavor. And if everyone is okay with drinking tan lemonade … It’s great for that too!

The 12th year celebrations have begun!! Cheesecake with a ginger snap pie crust, topped with shaved dark chocolate for breakfast and ‘100’ candles to closer represent his soul age (his choice for the candles!!)
A handmade notebook from Lillian; LEGO set and money for a new coat from The Romano Duo; handmade card, a “new” phone, big bag of sour cream chips (one of his favorite gifts – HA!), and new pair of flip flops from me. Part 1
Then, car picnic lunch with one of our favorite views in Reno.
The 12th year celebrations ended with Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno!! Vegan Cheesy Bruschetta and Totally Tomato soup for me. Smoked Salmon Roll-Ups and Vegan Organic Root beer Float for Thomas.
