Phone Dump - Recipe

 The funny thing is that I've been titling my pics for this week as "rest week".  Ha ha....that's a funny joke.  There is no such thing as rest around here.  I should have said "recovery week", but even so we aren't doing much of that either.
This is actually from last week, but I just had to include it.  Reno got a burr or a buzz, I don't really know what the difference is.  Isn't the look on his face so funny.  Mama is really enjoying the cut and no crazy hair all the time.  
We came home to this.  Our cups, bowls, basket, runneth over with yummy garden food.  We have to get better at picking okra, it seems like I look at it and think it's too small, but then it's too big by the next day.  Loving it!  
 Here's a little conversation Riley and I had. Corny, of course but don't all parents hope their babies want to be cowboys when they grow up?

Monday afternoon we received a little bitty shower.  When I say little bitty, I mean it.  I'm not even sure this sprinkle settled the dust.  Either way, we are glad for it and the kiddos had fun playing with the umbrella.
More beater licking for my kiddos.  We made Nutella Cheesecake.  It is quite possibly the easiest thing ever.  I didn't do it exactly as the recipe called for.  I made one and it calls for individual dishes.  It worked and  is no longer with us.  I'm calling it success!

No Bake Nutella Cheesecake

12 oreo cookies, crushed into crumbs
(I used a pre-made oreo crust)
3 T. unsalted butter, melted
1 - 8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
2/3 c. Nutella
1 tsp. vanilla
1 - 8 oz. tub Cool Whip, thawed
Cool Whip, optional
chocolate shavings, optional
toasted, chopped hazelnuts, optional

1.  In a medium bowl, stir together the Oreo cookie crumbs and melted butter.  Evenly divide the crumbs between your individual serving dished and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer.  

2.  In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and Nutella until smooth.  add vanilla and mix to combine.  Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping until well blended and no streaks remain.  

3.  Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

4.  If desired, garnish!

Easy is good! :) Sounds delish. Your kids are possibly some of the cutest on the face of the planet. I have never heard the term burr, but think I would love to incorporate that into my everyday lingo-cause it sounds about as cute as yer kid's names.

Eat some of the delish garden food for me! :)
