Okay, this is more red than pink, but I lost track of time and oops! forgot today was Saturday .... I was out of sync all week. Tuesday is usually my assistant's day off, but this week she swapped it for Wednesday. So Tuesday felt like Monday or Wednesday and Wednesday felt like Tuesday....I was so mixed up.
Yesterday my Dad ran me ragged. We started a little bit of Christmas shopping, we went to Sam's Club (not just for the Samples - that day is always a farce), and then on to the grocery store to get our turkey (23 lbs for 10 people) - I think we'll have enough - don't you? I actually filled my gas tank for $1.71 per gallon. $18.00 to fill my tank! Our day out always includes lunch and we chose Chili's this week. I have the same thing I always have (how predictable) the Chicken Crispers with the loaded mashed potatoes, and my Dad had his Baby Back Ribs.
Oh yes, onto the recipe.....
Cherry Delight is a quick and easy version of a cheesecake dessert.
We have to make it for every holiday because everybody in the family loves it. It is light and refreshing after all the heavy food.
3 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1 stick of butter (melted)
1/2 cup sugar
Mix and press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan
2 8oz packages of cream cheese (softened to room temp)
1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1 8 oz container of cool whip
1 can of cherry pie filling
Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar with mixer until light and fluffy, fold in Cool Whip. Spread mixture over the graham cracker crust. Refrigerate until firm. Top with cherry pie filling.
I hope this qualifies as great pink substitute for you today. To see some other great pink ideas visit Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound for the list of all of the other Pink Participants today!
I apologize for my lateness today, I finally re-upholstered my dining room chairs. Nothing like a holiday to motivate me to get my projects done!
Hope you all are having a Happy Pink Saturday!
