Celebrating National Cheesecake Day

Wednesday, August 1, 2012
Did you know July 30th is National Cheesecake Day? If you missed it, mark your calendars for next year!

The Cheesecake Factory offers half-priced slices on this day every year. Now, I'm not a huge fan of cheesecake, but I am a huge fan of discounted slices.

The girls and I had a perfect excuse to indulge!

We don't go to The Cheesecake Factory often. It always seems to cost us a fortune. But on this particular visit, I realized that you can keep it reasonable by choosing a few things from their Small Plates & Snacks menu which includes some of their "SkinnyLicious" items (under 500 calories). Most items are priced at just under $5, are perfect portions, and are tasty and healthy. We ordered the Greek salad, the arugula salad, hummus, and chicken samosas to share. It was a perfectly light lunch for the 3 of us.

But let's not kid ourselves. We were there for dessert, and we were not messing around.
Cheesecakes from l. to r., White Chocolate Raspberry, Kahlua Cocoa Coffee, Oreo Dream Extreme.

Lots of smiling faces once dessert was served!
