Sometimes the long three day weekends end up causing a tough Tuesday after the fact.
On days like that, I tend to get a good case of the munchies. Luckily when doing the weekly shopping the night before a new week, I tend to avoid buying a bunch of junk food because I know exactly how I am going to be wanting to eat a bunch of crap food come Monday (or in this case, Tuesday) morning.
I did, however, buy myself a box of cinnamon graham crackers last night. Not the *best* food, but far better than other choices I could have made. I was in a particularly munchie mood this morning and had a AH-HA moment when I thought about the leftover whipped cream cheese I had in the fridge with no bagels in sight to use it up on. I thought how perfect would it be to create a little mini faux cheesecake delight. And that is EXACTLY what I did.
2 graham cracker sheets, split in half (gives you four squares)
2-3 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
Baker's or regular sugarSmear cream cheese onto each graham square. Sprinkle with sugar (as little or as much as your heart desires) and ENJOY.

I am very happy to announce that Silentgoddess Art Jewelry has launched a stand-alone store. My jewelry is still available on Etsy and Artfire however I was ready to make the jump to an independent web store so I could utilize some customizable features such as a blog, gallery, tutorials and calendar all in one place. silentgoddess art jewelry and see what is new! If you are an artist looking to build and/or expand your online presence, I highly recommend Indiemade. The interface is super clean and easy to use and the monthly cost is a very manageable flat fee. No more listing fees or sales percentages taken from your bottom line. Plus your first month is FREE.
