Two Holidays That Go Hand in Hand- Cheesecake and Fathers-in-Law... How Sweet it Is!

CheesecakeWell if you think last weekend was a holiday treat, you're going to love today... July 30th is National Cheesecake Day AND National Father-In-Law Day.   

 I have no idea where or how these days were chosen but all I know is I'll take any excuse or reason to eat cheesecake.  Are you a New York  or Philadelphia Cheesecake aficionado .... I prefer mine creamy and topped with strawberries!  

When I think of cheesecake,  the episode of Friends when Chandler and Rachel steal find a cheesecake and can't get enough of it is what comes to mind.   So grab your fork and dig in.  Try Ina Garten's recipe for Mixed Berry Cheesecake. 

Or, if you think you want to kick it up a notch, try Paula Deen's Ultimate Fantasy Deep-Fried Cheesecake!  Forget about guilt!

Let's not forget our Father's-In-Law and their special day.   Let's face it... Fathers and GrillingFather's in law often get the short end of the stick when it comes to recognition.  They are usually around to accommodate all of us.... going along with the crowd to family events.... standing over the grill for weekend cook-outs.... waiting to be told where to go and where to stand at their child's wedding. 

My Father-in-Law, Bill, is no longer with us but I loved his dry sense of humor.  At his 70th birthday he had us all in stitches.  He loved to tease and kid and was so easy to have around. 

So, if you're lucky enough to still have your Father-in-Law with you, how about giving him a call or a visit ..... bring a couple of forks and dig in to a nice cheesecake. 


And, a favorite Father-in-Law and Father-of-the Bride:

Well, I don't have a father-in-law BARFF, but any excuse to eat cheesecake will work for me..........guilt free.  After all, it is a holiday, right?  I just brought Mickey strawberry cheesecake on Thursday, yum!

Hi Kathy--I love my father-in-law much more than cheesecake!  I never knew there was a father-in-law's day--is there a Mother-in-law one, too?

Hey Kathy-now you are talking! I actually knew it was Cheesecake day and am planning on going to the Cheesecake factory on Las Olas here in Lauderdale for their newest creation debuting today. Can't wait! Of course I will be in the gym all day tomorrow but hey:) Never had a father-in-law so no comment on that.

Oh ps- I have had Ina's mixed berry cc and it is good!

What a font of information.  Father-in-law day? I actually liked my father-in-law better than my ex-husband, and always celebrated father's day with him.  Anyway, we are Italian Cheesecake lovers so I'm going to buy one in his honor.

I didn't know there was such days... Cheesecakes and Father-in-Laws!  Kathy you are such a gem to share your tribute to Bill with us. I'm sure your memories are dear.

Enjoy your week-end.

Kathy, I never had a father-in-law but at least I've had cheesecake! Your's looks scrumptious! And if I could have a father-in-law, I would love to have someone just like Steve Martin. What a lovely post!

Michael- I don't get cheesecake but probably once a year.... but when I do.. I love it. 

BARFF- my favorite cheesecake!  And, if it's a holiday, then you HAVE to eat it. 

Barbara- coming from you... that means a lot!  Thank you.  I loved my Father-in- law and always hoped that he would come and live with us.  

Janet- I'll have to look up Mothers-in-law day.  Hopefully it's paired with another dessert day!

Marco- I forgot all about the Cheesecake Factory.  May have to sneak that in tonight (there's one at Town Center in Boca)  I'm going to have to make Ina's recipe.  So far, I've had luck using her recipes. 

Gabe - oh how funny!  OK...a double CC!

Toni- Have an extra piece of cheesecake in his honor!  (you're welcome... I forgot to come back to your post and tell you I'd reblogged it!)

Joanna- you're the second one who liked their Father-in-law better than their ex!  I'd say have the cheesecake in his honor.

Pamela- hey... I'll look for any excuse to have dessert!  I still miss my Father-in-law!

Patricia- don't you just love Stave Martin... if I weren't married, I take him for a husband!  Forget the Father-in-Law!!

BLiz- Yes.. and you should go out and satisfy your cravings!

Kathy, unfortunately, my father-in-law isn't with us anymore but there is no reason why I couldn't have some cheesecake in his honor!  Anything for an excuse!  :-)
