Military going away Card and recipe

  Hello and Happy 4th of July. Today I'm sharing with you a card that I made for my great niece Shania.

 She Is in the Navy and has been stationed in Japan. So wanted to make her a going away card.

This card was super easy to make. Don't you all love a quick and easy card?

Used the stamp set by Whimsy Stamps called Christmas Scene Builder.

 Wanted to share the recipe of the pie I made last night. Will be taking it to a 4th of July cookout today.

 Sorry the picture Is so dark.

Busy Day Lemon Cheesecake (1959)

1 8 oz. Cream Cheese
2 C. Whole Milk
1 small box Lemon Pudding
8" Graham Cracker Crust

Soften Cream Cheese
With an electric mixer slowly add half a cup of milk.
Add remaining milk and pudding mix.

Beat slowly w/ mixer just until well blended (Do not over beat)

Pour at once into crust.

While making topping I place in fridge to firm up. I let it sit for 30 minutes before adding topping.


1/2 of a 16 oz. container of Sour Cream
1 TBS Sugar ( I added just a little more)
1/4 tsp Vanilla (or just a little more like i do) 

( The original recipe calls for a whole container of sour cream. I think that is way to much so I only use half.)

Add topping to pie and let sit at least for two hours.I keep in fridge overnight.
You can add crumbled Graham crackers on top (optional) or some cool whip.

Also I have a Spinach Cheese Egg Bake recipe I shared a few post back if you want to check it out. It has step by step pictures.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a fun day celebrating. 


God bless the U.S.A
