morning in the heart of Illinois. The sun is shining and it is 64 degrees to reach 90 degrees today. It is a great day to be alive and I thank God that am. I have finished my 4th week of recovery and today begins my 5th week. I am gaining more strength each day. I think I will try and tackle a quick once over cleaning this week.
My son is coming to see me this Friday and my brother and his wife the next day on the 14th. I am in a dilemma on what to have to eat while they are here. My brother made it simple and said ‘Sis, don’t worry about it, we will take you out to eat and if that doesn’t work we’ll get you a gallon of homemade soup.’ My son is a different story. I definitely will make his lemon cream cheese bars that are his favorites. I have everything I need to make them. It will all work out!
These lemon bars are a great favorite of my son. Easy to make too!
Mix 1 box yellow cake mix with
1/3 cup oil and
Mix until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup. Pat remaining mixture into a 13X9 ungreased pan. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile do
Beat 8 ounce package of softened cream cheese with
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar and
1 egg until light and fluffy.
Spread over baked crumb mixture. Sprinkle remaining crumbly mixture over top. Bake 15 minutes longer. Do NOT overbake. Chill completely and cut into squares.
I hope your weekend is a good one. Stay safe and be happy!!
