Is it too early?

Last night I went out to dinner with about 15 other mommies from my mommies' group. We were supposed to head to The Cheesecake Factory, which led me dreaming of pumpkin cheesecake all day. And I do mean ALL. DAY. LONG.

We ended up heading to Champps (really great service, and a really great turkey burger, but that will be a post for a different day) for dinner, and picked up cheesecake to bring home. We got home so late that I honestly wasn't even up for eating it. (Shocking! The horror!)

And so, this morning, at 11AM, I opened up my fridge and it called to me.

PC: Aaaandrea. Oh, Annndreaaaaa.

Me: I cannot see you or hear you. I have already broken the rules of the morning by having my 1/2 turkey burger leftovers for breakfast.

PC: You know you want me.

Me: Are you trying to be a Calle Ocho song now? Get over yourself.

PC: Just one bite. Then you can put me away.

Me: As if. I'm closing the door now. Shutting off the light. Go take a nap.

PC: See you in five ...

And sure enough, I caved. I took a few bites, but then, you know what? I went back and had a few more.
Of course, I attracted the attention of my wee one. It figures. So she herself has enjoyed a bite or two before noon. Ah, well. At least SHE had a normal breakfast! Two cups of Cheerios with vanilla soymilk IS normal, right?

As I opened up the refrigerator door I swear I heard:

"Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about ..."

Anyway, I didn't get through the entire slice. But man, it is SO good. I love fall. I love pumpkins. And I LOVE pumpkin cheesecake. Ahhh, yum.


  1. That does sound good! I made home made pumpkin pie yesterday.

  2. Yummy! My pumpkin indulgence today was a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. This is just the beginning of the delicious and hard-to-resist holiday treats!
