HAPPY NATIONAL CHEESECAKE DAY

TODAY July 30th is National Cheesecake Day!!! Who would have thought they would have such a day!! Cheesecake is sweet dessert that is a mixture of soft fresh cheese, cream cheese or cottage cheese, eggs, and sugar on a crust made from some sort of crushed crackers or some pastry. Cheesecake can be baked or unbaked. They have many different varieties and versions out there today. Did you know there are over 1,500 National Days??

I have to admit…I only made the unbaked cheesecake version…I think I will have to try to make the REAL DEAL in the near future!! I love the cheesecake from Ruth Chris…by far that is MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!

Tonight after dinner we went to Cheesecake Factory in Metairie and they had half price any slice…but you had to dine in and its 1 slice per customer. So we decided to each order whatever flavor we wanted…my FAVORITE tonight was the chocolate mousse!!!
