Not a Typical Monday

 

 

 

Because of spring break, both of my daughters are home and we are taking advantage of the time. Last night we decided to go to the fairly new Cheesecake Factory for dinner, thinking that on a Monday night, the wait time would not be as bad. Since this is the first Cheesecake Factory in the area, it has been constantly busy, since it opened in the fall and we have been waiting to find the right time to go for a piece of that yummy cheesecake.

 

 

Luckily, we had all the time in the world, because we did have to wait, but it was definitely worth it. We had a wonderful time, laughing and talking all through dinner; catching up on life. And, you may be full from dinner and the huge portions served, but you don't go to The Cheesecake Factory without a piece of cheesecake to finish the night. We shared two pieces - raspberry lemon cream and chocolate tuxedo. Both were so delicious, but we all agreed the raspberry lemon flavor was our favorite.

Not our typical way to spend a Monday night and I'm thankful for the time we were able to spend together.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Looks like a nice time. I don't know if the novelty of having the Cheesecake Factory here will ever wear off -- I've only been once. My daughter gets a slice "to go" now and then and the raspberry lemon is our favorite also.

  9. So glad you are enjoying your time with the girls. We love the Cheesecake factory (can't eat the cheesecake anymore, but they have a fantastic gluten free menu).

  12. We don't have Cheesecake Factories here in Canada, but I hear they are yummy.

    And isn't it wonderful that a simple dinner out turns into something special when the kids come home?

  15. You can always count on at least an hour wait at our Cheesecake Factory. If you are smart you can spend that hour power walking through the mall and earn that piece of cheesecake! They are soooo good! Isn't it wonderful having the girls home!
