I had a very pleasant Mother's Day. Unfortunately, it is followed by a Monday, but I won't dwell on it now ;) I received roses, a handmade card, and... chocolate cheesecake.
B decided to indulge me by purchasing those four cheesecake on a tray dealies from our local warehouse store. Now, I've drooled over those tasty treats when we've gone shopping and unhappily turned away from them because they weren't necessary. Now I know they really weren't necessary. Don't get me wrong. In this case B hit the mark perfectly for me, but The Father's Table cheesecake didn't live up to the high expectations.
The four flavors were triple chocolate, turtle, Mississippi mud, and fudge brownie. All of the cheesecake was decent enough. Sweet, liked the chips, nuts, and caramel. What brought it all to a grinding halt was the graham cracker crust. It chewed like sand, gritty. The first slice I had I thought that maybe it was that flavor, but it wasn't. I took to scraping the cheesecake part off. And that's pretty bad.
Maybe the mistake was the whole Father's Table on Mother's Day thing.
The one I tried is on the top.
