Cheesecake Anyone?

A Cheesecake shot of our boy Sam
There's nothing like the thought of lunch and company of a good friend to get your attention and make you feel better--Don't you agree?  I met my friend Eileen yesterday for lunch at 'The Cheesecake Factory.' 

In my opinion, what can be more soothing to the soul, tummy-filling and sociable than having lunch and a piece of cheesecake with a friend?  Or if you don't like cheesecake, something else just as delectable?  As always when I get to see my friend, it was really an enjoyable visit and just what I needed to forget that I wasn't feeling well.  I hope your week is ending on a good note too and that you have an enjoyable weekend!

You can dangle cheesecake in front of me all you want, but I'd prefer that beautiful old golden in the top photo over anything. :) What a sweet and loving face!!!

Joanna said...

Oh My Goodness - look at all those lovely cakes! How on earth do you choose?! Definitely just what the doctor ordered.

Hope it made you feel better.

Louise said...

Ohhhhh, that looks so good! I have a giganormous sweet tooth. Some day, when I'm driving down to Woodbridge, maybe I can stop off along the way and eat cheesecake with you!

Miriam said...

Oh my - I just discovered that if I click on the photo the cheesecakes get even bigger. And I can read the labels, which only adds to the torture/enjoyment. I'll have a piece of the Brownie Sundae Cheesecake, please. Do you deliver?

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Isn't cheesecake one of the food groups?

Wish the one in Baltimore was closer to York - but then again, maybe I'm glad it isn't!

Homer said...

Ooooh yes, we love cheesecake! Too bad they don't do decent ones in Italy.

Love,
Homer

I sure hope you start feeling better, Kim. So glad you took some time out to enjoy a slice of cheese cake with a friend. That, I agree, is always good for the soul.

What a coincidence, we had the same
Cheesecake Factory splurge yesterday, incelebration of a co-worker's birthday. It was supposed to be the low carb version, but it sure didn't taste like low carb !
Look at that precious little face, I'd give up chessecake for him :)
Hugs,

Tracey said...

Can I come next time? It looks heaven! xxx

Sharon said...

You had a go for:
Lunch with a friend and cheesecake, I sure could go for either!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We're glad you're feeling enough better to be able to enjoy a restorative lunch with your friend. Cheesecake is a wonderful restorative, especially when joined with a cup of the genial beverage [mama is a devotee of hot tea]. We've never gotten to go to a Cheesecake Factory, but mama has and she says it's delish. We'll have to take her word for it.

Five o'clock in the morning, and I want cheesecake! I need to make one today.

It would only be better, if I had a dear friend to come and share it. You may bring your puppies - we have lots of space for them to run around.
A big hug.

Catherine said...

I don't know what else to say except "Yummy"!

Bobbi said...

Hi Kim. Oh, those desserts look wonderful. I don't care for cheesecake... but I was looking to see if I could find some chocolate eclairs tucked in there somewhere...

I hope you are feeling better.

Sam said...

We love the first picture - and love his nearly pure-white "heart"! That is a sign that old gold is best and most beloved... but, a slice of cheesecake is good too!

KB said...

It sounds like you had a wonderful time with a good friend. Now, I hope that you feel better for real.

The Witch said...

Kim,
I'm just drooling looking at all these beautiful cakes.
Which one did you choose? I think I would have taken a few extras home for dessert during the week. Would have to buy double because Hubby would want some also.
Ok that's just a rotten excuse but it may work.

Barb said...

Glad none of those is within my reach! Sam reminds me of my dear departed friend, Breezy.
