“Just Roll with It” Serving up Recipes and Humor

Hello everyone! It’s a beautiful day here in the River Valley. I hope y’all got some good laughs over that dog hiking its leg and peeing on me. Well, I thought I had washed my shoe really good, and I went to my son’s house on Memorial Day and as soon as I got set down here come my grand dogs and they both went straight to my left foot and started smelling my shoe. I am marked for life, I guess.

I’m telling ya crazy things happen to me. I’m 60 years old and this is another thing you young whipper snappers need to know once you get older. You cannot sleep at night. I literally can go to bed and fall asleep and wake every two hours just like a baby. I could probably eat but won’t let myself. It’s awful, thankfully I don’t require a lot of sleep and never sleep in. I don’t know if y’all know this about me, but I don’t like spiders. I got bit by one when I was young and had to have the bite lanced so ever since, I am scared of them. Back to my story, I was in bed one night and I woke up and thought there was a spider on my face. Well, I am flouncing around like fish in that bed, going wild, slinging covers and I am half asleep. Then, I decided it bit me, and it was a brown recluse, and my face was going to rot off.

Who knows what really happened. When I woke up, I couldn’t find a spider or a spider bite, so I don’t know if I dreamed it, or it really happened. One morning I got up half asleep and went in the kitchen to take my medicine. I have a glass on the sink that I use. I felt something on my throat, and I think there was a spider in that cup, and I swallowed it. You know I was gagging and carrying on over that. So, if y’all see me hanging from a web on the side of a building, keep in mind it’s going to have to be a strong one, think nothing of it. I had enough encounters with spiders to be Spiderwoman, the senior citizen version.

Hope y’all have a good week. Enjoy the hot weather, because that’s what we are having.

This week’s recipe is a four-layer delight and I have all those white chocolate chips, so I am going to make it.

VANILLA DREAMBOAT DESSERT
1 package of golden Oreos crushed fine
6 tablespoons of butter melted
1 tub of Philadelphia no bake cheesecake filling
1 regular tub of Cool Whip
2 packages instant vanilla pudding
3 1/4 cups of whole milk
1 bag of white chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine the Oreos and butter until fully coated. Press into an ungreased 9×13 dish. Spread the cheesecake filling on top of the Oreos (you can make your own with cream cheese if you prefer). Mix the pudding and milk together with a whisk until well combined and starts to thicken and spread on the cream cheese layer. Let this set in the refrigerator for a little bit and then put Cool Whip on the top and sprinkle the white chocolate chips on top. Keep in the refrigerator and let cool for about four hours before serving. Enjoy!
