"THE" CHEESECAKE FACTORY

I mentioned last week how my friends and I went to dinner while our husbands were at the Father Daughter Princess Ball. I love it there. It's dark, cozy, and the food is delicious!!

Now, my bloggy friends know that I can't go out to eat without taking pictures of what everyone ordered. I told my girls that they couldn't eat till I took a picture of their plates. We were all so stuffed after dinner that not one of us ordered dessert! I couldn't believe it! The whole point of going there was for the cheesecake. But, I think if I did have a bite of some, I would have exploded!Christina, Lorena, & Jyl. Christina's daughter is the one who went with Gabe and the girls to the ball.
We all shared the chicken nachos. So yummy!!
My friend Erica (not pictured), and I ordered the Chicken Madeira. It is two chicken breasts, topped with mozzarella cheese, marinated mushrooms and asparagus, and a heaping pile of mashed potatoes. I wish I could cook like this at home!
Christina & Jyl ordered the Filet Mignon. It also came with the creamy mashed potatoes. Christina didn't finish all of hers, so guess what? Mocha (my puppy) got a yummy treat!
My flash totally ruined this. It's hard to make out whats under the salmon. But, if I remember correctly, this is called Miso Salad.
If you have never been to The Cheesecake Factory, I highly recommend you go. Even if it's just for the dessert alone, it is a great place for kids and adults! You will not be disappointed!

It is definitely one of our favorites but I've only ordered the same dish everytime - Spicy Cashew Chicken. We totally went our first time ever and didn't get the cheesecake. Pumpkin cheesecake should be in season now and it is yummy. Then again, it all is! Glad you had a fun girls night out.

Yes, I went there last weekend with my daughter and it was fantastic! But, we forced some cheesecake down at the end. ;)

You and your food blog posts WOMAN! You do it to me on purpose I'm sure. Now, I'm starving and I'm almost possitive my cherrios and milk I planned on eating for breakfast aren't going to taste like what I see in those pictures [which is what I realllly want to eat for breakfast].

So thanks :)

Is it a bad thing if that all looks good this early in the morning? Yummy! Been there once and loved it.

Pam said...

That looks so good! We don't have a cheesecake factory in our area, but if I ever find one I want dessert!

Have not been here in ages! I wish I liked cheesecake more but they do have a great salad there. :)

Robyn said...

Sounds like fun and looks yummy. We don't have a cheescake factory around where I live and I'm not sure if there is one in Anchorage or not. I know I'm missing out!

Alicia,

I lived in California for how long (goodness), moved away just a few months ago, and NEVER went to the Cheesecake Factory. I even have a gift card that I never used. What is wrong w/me? Ladies, never be ashamed to box up dessert. I do it all the time. I once dated a guy who refused to do to-go boxes (very American and low class he thought). I guess I'm very much both.

Stephanie said...

I think you committed a sin :) I have never been before but I don't think I could go without cheesecake..in fact I might have just skipped dinner :)

Oh my gosh! It looks so good Alicia! I have a gift certificate to that restaurant but we have never gone. We should : ) Or at the very least, I should give the gift certificate to someone that would use it : )

Susie said...

Stacy said...

The food looks yummy!!!!

Too bad we don't have one around here:(

Carrie said...

The chicken maderia is the best!!!I order it every time I go...sometimes I just crave it! The Cheesecake Factory is my favorite place to eat!!

Erin said...

LOL! Lucky you! I love, love, love the Cheesecake Factory. In fact, we're driving over to Seattle next weekend so we can go to: The Cheesecake Factory (for me), Claim Jumper (for Superman and the kids), IKEA (oh, how I miss Ikea!) and Trader Joe's...these are the things I miss from So Cal! I haven't been to any of them in four years!

Helene said...

Those dishes look SO yummy! Can you believe we don't have a Cheesecake Factory here in Stockton? The closest one is probably Sacramento. Although we did recently get an Olive Garden, so maybe we're making our way on the map!

Looks great! Next time skip dinner and make sure you get cheesecake though...

Muthering Heights said...

Yummmmmmmm...I SOOOOO wish we had a Cheesecake Factory here!

I've heard so much about that place, but never been to one! I don't think we have one here, I guess I'd have to look into Orlando(big city, lol). I have a friend from High School who was part of the 7 person art team that travelled around and did all the painting inside there,...but I've never seen it!
The food looks scrumptious!

I typically get my cheesecake to go. B/c I do not have the self control to leave the Cheesecake Factory without cheesecake. Glad you had a fun night!
