Thinking I started something.

Centerville, TX

A few weeks ago I made a favorite of ours.  A type of cheesecakie thingie.   I got the recipe off Facebook some months ago.   Everyone who has tried it, loved it.   The recipe can not be simpler unless one buys a cheesecake from the store.

Cody, one of the company men here at the gate always stops the talks to Leonard.   As I had just made the cheesecakie thingie, I gave him a hefty couple of slices.    Then he started strongly hinting about it most times he came through the site.  About the same time, one of the construction drivers asked what time was lunch. I told him no lunch!  But, being the sweet person I am, I gave him some cheesecakie thingie.

Leonard had been talking to another company man, Casey,  about Cajun Food.   He was making Crawish etouffee the next night and invited Casey to dinner.   So, ! make the cheesecakie thingie again.   He didn't have time to stay to eat so took the etouffee back to the site.  I sent most of the cheesecakie thingie with him on condition he return my pan.  (he did).

A few days ago Cody came in with some other workers in the truck with him.   He said  he told them how good my cheesecakie thingie is but they didn't believe him.   What do you think he was telling me.  The same day the truck driver told me the cheesecakie thingie was good except for one thing.  I didn't give him enough.

Yesterday I made another batch.   I gave some to Cody, some to Casey, some to another man (the pumper) who comes through the gate several times a night.   Leonard also gave two slices to a boss company man.  Never saw the truck driver yesterday  Guess he was out of luck.

When I went to bed last night there were two slices left.   This morning two ladies who do the catering when the various crews finish their part of the process came through the gate.    Len gave them the last two slices.   One was so glad to get it because she had tried the cheesecakie thingie that one of the guys had.   Glad she liked it because when she grills for the crew, we also get the benefit.

If interested, this is the recipe for the cheesecakie thingie.   No idea what it is really called.

1.  Take one tube of refrigerated crescent rolls and lay on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
2.   Mix together two blocks of cream cheese, one cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of vanilla.
3.   Spread cheese cheese mixture over crescent rolls.
4.   Cover with another tube a crescent rolls.
5.  Melt one stick of butter and pour over
6.  Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of sugar mixed with cinnamon.  I have no idea how much, I just keep adding until it       looks right.
7.   Bake at 350 until edges are brown - about 25 minutes.

There!  Easy cheesecakie thingie.   Just be careful who you give some to.  They might be hinting for more.


  1. What is with the thingie word. We need to replace it with a word like Creation or Paradise. Yea, Cheesecake Paradise by Phyllis.
