I can’t believe that it’s only 8:30 and I’m already sleepy. I think after this episode of Murder, She Wrote goes off I’m going to bed. I’ve got a kind of busy day ahead of me tomorrow since a couple of things have gone awry. I forgot to make my first payment for this semester of school when I went and brought my books yesterday and a book I ordered from Amazon is not the one that was shown on the site. So I have to go back to school tomorrow and make that payment and buy that book. I also have to make the Bourbon Chocolate Pecan cheesecake tomorrow. I never knew so much work went into baking a cheesecake. I think the Caramel Pumpkin Pecan Gingersnap one turned out how it was suppose to. I was surprised that it didn’t have any cracks when I took it out the oven. I’ll be putting it in the deep freezer tomorrow; that’s why I want to get the other baked. I think freezing them will help when I ship them.


Looks like I have a full day ahead of me tomorrow. I have to go buy books for school, buy the rest of the ingredients for two cheesecakes I’m making, hopefully buy boxes to ship them in and make the cheesecakes. With all the running around I’ll be doing I probably won’t make them until Thursday. Actually now that I think about it I’ll have to make them then because I’m going to Chicago next week and the week after that school starts back. So the cheesecakes I’m making are Bourbon Chocolate Pecan and Caramel Pumpkin Pecan Gingersnap. I think they will be the first entries on Cooking Hijinx.


My grandmother and aunt want to go grocery shopping tomorrow. On Christmas Eve. I hope we go early and that there’s not a crowd. I figured that since we’re going I might as well pick up what I need to make cheesecakes for two of my friends. I still need to figure out how I’m going to ship them;¬†especially¬†since I’m cooking them in a water bath. To all those reading this Happy Festivus!
