Red, White and Blueberry Mini-Cheesecakes

I am feeling quite festive, it is Friday and I am off for the next four days from work.  Yay Me!  I am starting my Fiesta Friday 4th of July off right with good food and good friends.  Todays menu consists of Barbecue Ribs, Potato Salad and Baked Beans …maybe a vegetable salad of some sort.   When I asked my son what I should make for dessert he said, without any hesitation, cheesecake please!  I decided this was an excellent choice not only for our 4th of July dessert, but also for Fiesta Friday over at Angie’s, The Novice Gardener.  So come on over, will you join us?
