Hello everyone! Dog days of summer. I will get a lot of hate over this, but I like summer way more than winter. I do not like to be cold. All three of my grandkids like fall and winter. I do love fall because y’all know how much I love Halloween.

Some of my stories are so crazy, but they are all true. I didn’t date a lot of guys in my day, but it seems like the ones I did date always ended up with a crazy story. Why were there not any normal guys back in the 80’s? I’m sure there was, but not in my circle. Seems like Lisa Favela was always in on these shenanigans. One time she set me up on a blind date with her date’s brother and I had to actually get out of the car and act like I was throwing up to get out of it. Whew! That was a close one! I’m not Pamela Anderson, but some things I draw the line on. This is another story on this particular night. We were on a double date headed to Ft. Smith, we get into town and low and behold their truck broke down. See what I mean? Always something. So, we are going down Pheonix Avenue and pulled into some business there. They fiddled with that truck, and it would not start. We had to call a wrecker to have them haul it back to my house. Here comes the wrecker service with this big guy looking pretty rough. He is going to tow us back to Mansfield. Might I add, single cab. We asked to ride with him, why on Earth did we not call someone to come get us is beyond me. Lisa and me are fighting over who has to sit by the wrecker guy. I drew the short straw. There are five of us in the cab of a wrecker truck headed to Mansfield. We are packed in there like sardines. It was just awful. We finally get to Mansfield after what seems like hours and the big wrecker guy gets out and starts rubbing the side of his leg and he says, “you have just about rubbed the hide off my leg!” I was so embarrassed I could have croaked. Yes, I know what you are wondering, and yes, we did go back out with the guys. Oh, the fun we had back in them good old days.

This week’s recipe is crescent roll cheesecake, and my sister-in-law had this at my brother’s birthday party, and they are soooo good. My grands loved them.

2 cans of crescent rolls
2 8 oz. packages of cream cheese (softened)
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick of butter (not margarine)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Unroll and press one can of the crescent rolls into the bottom of your pan and press the seams together. In a separate bowl, blend the cream cheese, 1 cup of the sugar and 1 tsp. of vanilla. Mix well and spread over the top of the crescent dough in your pan. Unroll the second can of crescent rolls and place on top on the top off the cream cheese mixture, pressing the seams together. Melt the butter and pour over the top of the crescent rolls. Mix the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon together and sprinkle on top. Now, if you don’t think that’s enough, you can do a little more. More is always better in my book. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until bubbly. Cool and enjoy. Have agreat week!
