My Cherry Delight Recipe

I  make this dessert every year for my dad and brother and that would
be there Christmas present and they would fight over who got the bigger container :)
Well my dad passed away in 2006 so now I just make it for my brother and that first
year sucked without him and his big bowl.
But life goes on right? and so now it's all about my Brothers Belly :)
It is really simple to make and I made a double batch as you can simply cut down
and use 1 or 2 of the items to make it smaller...I am sure there is probably a recipe out there with the same ingredients and another name I do not know about...This is a recipe my grandma had and she quit making it and I just took over with it.
So here is what I use

2 packs of instant Vanilla Pudding
2 things of Cream Cheese
2 Boxes of Graham Crackers
4 cans of Comstock Cherrys in sauce
4 Tubs of Cool Whip
Milk of your choice for the pudding mix
Mix Cream Cheese and instant pudding together in blender
I did one cream cheese and one pudding for my first layer and saved
the other 2 for my next layer.
(again you will need to add or subtract depending on how
much you want to make)
I cut up the cream cheese into chunks so they mix better
In my big pan I bought at Krogers I start my layers
First layer is Graham Crackers
The second layer is your pudding/cream cheese mix
Next layer is Cherries
2 cans on this layer was used
Then Cool Whip goes on top of that
Well like I said earlier you can just make it all one layer and leave it alone
depends on how much you want to make.
I then started another layer on my brothers and again I add
Graham Crackers
Pudding Mix
Cool Whip and then a few Graham Crackers sprinkles and crumbled up on top for looks
and then this is what it looks like
Would be a great dessert to take to your next party!!
Enjoy and Happy New Year to Everyone

My Blue Christmas Bathroom

Hiya everyone....I hope all is well with you as we are getting closer to that Christmas day.
Are you done shopping? 
I don't buy alot and my son is 12 and actually does not have anything that he wants for Christmas which makes things hard as I still want to kinda have that Christmas morning were Santa came you know......and I don't want it to be just clothes, but hey If that is what he needs then that is what he will get as I see no point in wasting money on things that will never be used and just sit there...
I did that when he was young and that was just dumb and wasteful.
I know, I know he doesn't believe anymore and that is hard and really just makes Christmas SUCK if you want my honest feel about the
So anyways I did do some decorating to make the house feel cozy and to change the looks for at least 4 to 5 weeks out of the year.  I do like to look at my Christmas tree as I use things that mean alot to me to hang on it...example my grandpa and dads watch and my great grandmas pin cushion and a dog collar from a special little pepper :)  things like that..and if you are interested in checking it out stop over and read one of my older posts to refresh your memories Memories on my tree
 Do you have special things you hang on your tree?  What is it?  Share with me I wanna know...
ok, ok so now to the good part as we all love to see people house and how they decorate a room...I do anyways.  So here is my bathroom

This is the view going in to my bathroom.. duh :)

I hung cute little stars from my light fixture with grey ribbon

A great Free Snowman Picture looks awesome and just makes the space
feel perfect for winter...yes..yes..FREE...a box of items from a yard sale
was given to me from my neighbor and this was in it...LOVE it

Oh and the Let it Snow sign hanging was also FREE from the box of goodies

This was a big piece of wood I had and just painted it with black paint and used
a few coats..(not chalkboard paint just plain old black paint) 
I just took chalk and wrote out JOY...perfect... :)  and just wipes away when I want to add
something different to it

Just a view from when I look in my mirror.
And that is it...My simple and cheap Blue Christmas Bathroom
Oh and the awesome shower curtain that I just LOVE was found
at Krogers in the clearance section for only $3.00  yes...3 bucks
I LOVE shower curtains....
Yay so I did another blog this month and I wanna thank you for reading it.
I wish you all a great December...Stay happy and healthy
