What's in my fridge

I had dinner last night with my friend Ellen. After my life started it's amazing trip down the shitter, around February 2006, Ell and I used to have dinner together every other Monday. Last night, we re-instituted Monday Night Dinners.

We went to the Cheesecake Factory at Woodfield Mall. I was too full of calimari and fish tacos (yes, Kelly, and they're really good) to enjoy a piece of cheesecake, so I got my white chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake with extra whipped cream to go.

I can't stop thinking about it. It's in my fridge, taunting me.

You should meet Ellen. She's a wonderful friend. We had such a great time catching up, talking about the old days, and letting our delightful server, Chris, in on our inside jokes (i.e., Roger continually squashed my creativity, ergo he's an evil, evil man.)

Chris, it turns out, is returning to school to study graphic design, so naturally the three of us were like old friends by the time we finished dinner - Ellen and I are both designers, so he's promised to make us proud.

The unbeatable combination of good food, good friends, hot tea and cheesecake to go ... makes Margot a happy woman.

It sounds like you fed your soul along with your belly.

I like that.

The cheesecake is under lock and key, protected by two panther-like felines. Hands off my dessert, lady!

I like the Cheescake factory except for one thing...
They dont sell NY style cheesecake.. if you dont know what NY style is, its only the bestest most thick, dense, creamy cheesecake you can get! Its soooooo good... Although, I do make the BEST homemade NY style cheesecake... I am still disappointed that a restaurant calling itself the "Cheesecake Factory" would not have one of the most famous styles of cheesecake! However... their food is YUMMY!!
But I'm glad you enjoyed it and had fun! I think I wanna go and have dinner there soon... anyone wanna come to the Nashville Cheesecake Factory and join me?? I'm buying!
