Now, this isn’t one of those “officially” declared days of celebration by the President of the United States of America or an elected town official, but it is certainly a rich and delectable day to celebrate cheesecake officially! According to historical archives, cheesecake is believed to have its origins in ancient Greece, over 4,000 years ago, on the island of Samos. Although we really don’t need a reason to delve into this creamy dessert that so many of us have come to know, cheesecake is truly one of our favorite comfort foods.
As a fan of “The Golden Girls” television show, I especially loved the part when someone would grab the cheesecake and saucers when one of the characters was facing a crisis. Estelle Getty (Sophia), Bea Arthur (Dorothy), Rue McClanahan (Blanche) and Betty White (Rose) always sat down with a slice of mouthwatering cheesecake, fellowshipped and solved the problem with good, fun and encouraging conversation. I hated to miss an episode! I loved this show and the part where they brought out the cheesecake!
So whether you are having a Golden Girls moment, a Divas brunch or a Boys Club conclave, just close your eyes and allow the creamy, rich taste of heavenly bliss tantalize your taste buds! It’s National Cheesecake Day, so dive in and indulge your senses!
And look at what I found on Facebook! The Cheesecake Factory is offering ½ price on a slice of cheesecake in celebration of National Cheesecake Day today!
Don’t miss it!!! And by the way, what is your favorite cheesecake? Personally, I love good old cherry-topped cheesecake and a cup of tea! Sheer bliss!!!
