Work and a totally delicious Strawberry kind of cheescake

Hello, beautiful followers and random people are reading this. 
I apologize, yet once again, for being such a terrible blogger. 
However! Rejoice! 
For I have great news and a great recipe to share with you all n.n 

I have landed an awesome job... that I do for free... 
I guess you could call it a kind of Social Service that needs to be done so I can get my diploma from my cooking lessons, that are in reality a sort of Associates Degree kind of thing. 
Anyway... I landed an awesome job at this really nice, beautiful, really fun place called: La Estacion, Comida de Mercado. 
Now if you go back a few posts to January, you'll find that I spent New Years Eve at this same restaurant and that I fell in love with it, and surprise surprise I work there now! 
And I L O V E it! 
And even though I am the only girl, female, working there and it gets a little uncomfortable at times. I just love it. I've learned some tricks over the last weeks and have been so inspired I am sort of writing a Mexican Cookbook based on my experience in this restaurant and stuff. 
I've been there the last couple of weeks, so I've reduced my cooking hours at home quite a lot.
Yet I found the time to make this awesome kind of cheesecake! 

It turned out to be really really good. 

The crust so simple to do but extremely satisfying: 
I used icing sugar, butter and flour. Mixed them all together until I got a sandy-like appearance. Stuffed it in the fridge for an hour. 

The filling:
Is your regular cream cheese beaten with icing sugar and lemon drops until smooth and nice and tasty. 
with chopped strawberries (and I added bananas too).

The topping:
Are just graham crackers crushed into tiny nice pieces.

Easy and lovely! Just the way I like it!
