Cheescake and Atonement


I woke up at 5:30 this morning with the realization that the last time I made cheesecake (months ago) my springform pan broke.  And here I was planning to make cheesecake today for my dinner guests tomorrow night.  Bah. 

And I had just gone to town yesterday and could have easily bought a new one, had I only remembered, but there’s not much chance of finding one locally.  Double Bah.

So I dozed back into a restless sleep, evaluating the possibility of serving cheesecake out of a pie pan, which sounds like a crumbly mess.

When I got up, I went straight to the cabinet and, lo and behold, there was my springform pan.  It even seems to work properly.  A miraculous resurrection!  Well, sort of.  I think I must have patched the mechanism together after it broke, though I had forgotten.  I will be treating it rather gently and hoping that it holds together one more time.

So today I want to make three or four pies, a cheesecake, chicken mushroom lasagnas, pumpkin muffins, and cut up a bunch of celery sticks.  Hopefully, that should take care of my food prep for the weekend.  I have guests who are bringing the rest of the food–what a treat!


This Sunday night begins Yom Kippur, Judaism’s most high holy day.  When I think of the solemnity of a Day of Atonement, a day when one needs to have everything set right, to reconcile all differences, and get right with God, I am so thankful that my Jesus was my atonement. 

Amazing love–how can it be
That Thou my God wouldst die for me?

My Messiah–the fulfillment of Yom Kippur.   Praise His Holy NAME~

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    My springform pans are somewhere in storage.  I have a mini-springform pan, so I have thought of halving a recipe.  I haven’t made cheesecake much, but I’d like to master it.  And, i have a new recipe i am eager to try.  Happy cooking and baking today.  Are any of those going to be cherry pies? And, AMEN to Jesus being our atonement!  Bless His holy name!

    @BooksForMe -Only one cherry pie.    And a Chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake.  drool…  The pan held together, but I’m just hoping I didn’t ruin it!  I let it cool in the oven, then later turned on the oven to preheat for the pies.      It still looks and smells okay, but I haven’t taken it out of the pan.  Praying…
