Yup, it is that time of the year again. My sweet Mother’s birthday!
I won’t say her age because she might kill me later, haha. 😉
Of course all my Mom wanted for her birthday was to be with her family. So her husband decided to coordinate a big family dinner with my sisters and I. She chose The Cheesecake Factory, which was fine with me! I love that place, even if it is a huge calorie bomb.
Seriously, how is their food so good? I guess you get what you pay for because this place is also so freaking expensive. Good thing her husband was paying! You have to take advantage of those few times during the year when someone offers to buy you a meal right? 😉
My Mom decided to order the avocado rolls appetizer and we all smashed it. I love avocados! I have to figure out how to make this at home because it was sooo good. For the main course I went with my usual Miso Salmon. That stuff is addicting. My hubby went for the Factory Burrito Grande which seriously lived up to it’s name… he actually finished it which blew my mind.
I decided since I was eating horribly I would go ahead and order their Tropical Smoothie. How can I explain the deliciousness? My Mom tried mine and had to order one for herself. Check out my sister photobombing in the background with her boyfriend… LOL.
But the real star of the restaurant is the cheesecake of course! 🙂
My Mom went for white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, and they brought it out on a pretty decorated plate with a candle for her birthday. It was very cute!
My sister went for the pina colada cheesecake which is half cheesecake and half actual cake. I wasn’t really a fan of the combination myself but my sister liked it. My Mom’s husband had the tuxedo cheesecake which was so rich! I just had a bit and it was enough.
I shared a mango key lime cheesecake with my hubby and it was sooo good! The bottom is keylime and the top is mango flavored. Tart and sweet at the same time! Yum.
Overall, we all had a really nice time. My Mom is looking as great as ever. 🙂 I can only hope I will age as well as she has. When I was younger everyone always thought she was my sister, which was annoying then but now I can only hope I’ll keep that same genetic trait haha.
Happy birthday to my lovely Mom! ♥
