I had already bought a graham cracker crust, then realised I only had one box of "cheesecake" pudding (need 2 for pie). So I looked around to see what else I might have on hand to give it more volume and discovered i had an extra container of sour cream (16 oz.)...so i used that in place of the 1 1/2 cups milk. Then i found a lemon, so i added the zest and juice. I even found a little jar of strawberry ice cream topping, so i micro'd it for 30 seconds and poured it on...and "voila" ....strawberry lemon cheesecake in a flash done Thanksgiving morning! =^.~=
