CCF Makes for a Great Day!

              We Love the Cheesecake Factory!


You know,    ......this place is just plain good...


The food is great, the cheesecake is more than great, and the prices....well, they are ???


When Sam and I woke up Saturday morning, the weather was not the best, with cloudy skies and heavy rain in the forecast.  We decided that the best thing for us to do was to make a small road trip.  In this case, it was to the big city of Frisco, Texas...


We had no other agenda, other than having lunch together and enjoying the afternoon doing whatever we wanted to do...


If you have never tried the ORANGE CHICKEN
from this place, then you have missed out on a delicious food dish...Sam and I both ordered the orange chicken and as our side, we ordered the sauteed spinach.  Can I tell you that the combination of flavors in these two dishes was absolutely the best....



Orange Chicken (we did NOT have the rice)

and


Sauteed Spinach.......


Why, have I not ever gone to cooking school?
How about y'all....have you ever attended a 
cooking school??

Geez, I would love to know how to cook like the chefs at the CCF.     Most of us can cook chicken and most of us know how to saute spinach, but it's those flavors, the sauces, that make the food soooo good!

I would love to work in the kitchen of this place (for about a month)....Just enough time to learn the secrets and the ingredients that are used to deliver the most delectable foods to each of their customers...

Did I mention that the company and the conversation that I shared with my hubby is what really made this lunch date the BEST!

After our two hour lunch, we traveled a hundred miles (in the rain) back home to enjoy a wonderful evening of total relaxation....

What a great day it was!  The perfect start to 
SPRING BREAK!

Blessings and morning hugs....

Oh....and BTW.....we did NOT have Cheesecake!!

So there really is a cheesecake factory and it's not just part of the big bang theory tv show with penny working there :]

This is a fave restaurant for us.
No cheesecake? What willpower!!!

Kimmie's comment is so funny, cause when I see pennyat work on Big Bang it crackes me up!

Glad you had a super day.

Sounds alot different from that 'fast' you were on a few weeks ago.... ha ha.... Did you lose weight on that fast? If so, has it all come back to you?????? Losing weight is easier for me than keeping it off....

I've eaten at the Cheesecake Factory--but it would be hard to eat there without eating some cheesecake....

The orange chicken sounds delicious... Glad you had a great day with your hubby.

We are home from our 2nd trip is a month--and both of us have colds.. Yuk! Guess it will be REST for this upcoming week for both of us.

Hugs,
Betsy

What fun, you made the best of the day! I am too afraid to go or drive anywhere in the rain. My footing is so bad, and I am so clumsy. I have been to Cheesecake Factory a number of times, but the closest one is over an hour away. BUT I never had the Orange Chicken or this spinach! Now I will know what to order next time!! If you ever watch the hilarious show "The Big Bang", Cheesecake Factory is featured on it.

Cheesecake Factory is one of my son's favorites! Sounds like you and hubby turned what could have been a gray day into a sunny day together...sweet!

The chicken especially looks wonderful. I've never been to cooking school although I take lessons from native chefs when we travel. I'm off to try and find a copy cat recipe for the chicken. Have a great evening.Blessings...Mary
