So there’s this place not far from my house called Mrs Jones Cafe & Cheesecake Co. and while I’ve eaten there at least a dozen times over the years I’ve never tried their cheesecake. And I mean they make a big deal about their cheesecake. It’s what they’re know for. It’s in the name of the darn restaurant, yet somehow I’ve never tried it. Mainly it’s because I’m not big on sweets, I’m a “Cheesecake? meh.” sort of girl.
Last weekend hubby and I went out for a kid free lunch date. We both got their lunch deal, with includes a cookie for dessert. New since our last visit they now offered an “upgrade” where you could swap your cookie out for a cheesecake. So we both splurged for cheesecake. And O. M. G. this right here, this pumpkin swirl cheesecake that my hubby ordered? This is the most amazing thing I have ever put in my mouth.
See this picture? Front and centre, that is my Tiramasu cheesecake and across the way that is hubby’s pumpkin swirl cheesecake. My cheesecake was good, but hubby’s was divine. The moral of this story, boys and girls? Splurge now and then! Seize the day! Try the cheesecake! (and make sure to steal a bite from your date.)
