Amaretto Cheesecake

A while back I went to a local Bazaar with my sister and two friends. I'd love to be one of those people who makes EVERYTHING from scratch. Truly, I'd love to do that. I believe it's better for our bodies and souls. Mixes like this cheesecake one though make it easy for me to NOT be that way. Maybe one day I'll get there...

DeeDee Desserts No Bake Cheesecake Mix
16 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed
9" prepared graham cracker pie crust

Whip cream cheese. Add in mix and Cool Whip; blend until smooth, 2-3 minutes. Spoon into pie crust. Refrigerate at least one hour.

So Far This Week...

everything has gone as planned! We went out Monday night, had Hungry Jack Pots on Tuesday evening, went "out" Wednesday night, and I went out last night. Tonight we're having Can-Can Chicken before we go grocery shopping. Tomorrow is our friend's 6th birthday party (Yay!), and Sunday I plan on making potato soup. That Quesadilla Casserole is going to be pushed back a week again!

Hungry Jack Pots

My Mom has been making these for as long as I can remember. I usually make them with corn or macaroni and cheese, and a fruit.

1 10-count can biscuits
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/4-1/3 c barbecue sauce
Shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown ground beef; drain. Mix barbecue sauce into ground beef. Press biscuits into muffin tins. Fill with beef mixture. Top with shredded cheese. Bake 10 minutes.

Menu Plan Monday

Tonight is our weekly outing with our friends at Chick-fil-a!
Wednesday night we are going to a ham dinner at church.
Thursday I'm going out (childless!) with one of my friends for dinner.
Saturday we'll be at a birthday party in the late afternoon, which we'll count as dinner.

What a busy week! That only leaves Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday for us to cook meals! On those three nights we'll choose from these four meals:
Hungry Jack Pots
Can-Can Chicken
Potato Soup
Quesadilla Casserole (that we did not make this past week - instead we had a new meatloaf recipe that we weren't impressed with...)

Have a great week!
