blueberry cheesecake jars!!!


We delighted in a great end of the week. Saturday was spent going “over the waterway and through the forested areas” to Grandpa Grape’s (Greg’s) house. We brought tidbits and wine and brew and hung out for a couple of hours. Fun discussion and heaps of snickers, as usual. On our way home we made a stop at Trader Joe’s for a touch of shopping binge. Truly, I could go through days in that store. We got a couple of Christmas presents completely DONE while we were there alongside some shopping for food. What’s more, would i be able to reveal to you the amount I LOVE the beautiful, 99-penny, TJ’s reusable basic food item sacks as blessing packs? They’re so bubbly and they twofold as sea shore packs in the mid year. Discussion about “repurposing.” Honestly such a lot of in a way that is better than purchasing one more bushel that will gather dust in some corner. I love crates, yet you just need 8 dozen and afterward they simply begin getting unnecessary. 😉

Anyhoo, I guess I should educate you concerning these delightful cheesecake containers. Um, YUM. They’re not difficult to assemble, charming, and they travel well as well. On the off chance that blueberries aren’t your thing, you can undoubtedly substitute cherries, lemon, chocolate pudding, or peaches for the blueberries. Simply ensure you’re utilizing all set pie filling, and not simply canned natural product, or your cheesecakes will get soaked.
