Cheesecake, please

I’ll take the lower right side. Someday.

The text from my terrific daughter Elisabeth shared an exciting new Central New York menu.

She and George Three had stopped at Big Mama’s Cheesecakes after work and brought home several slices.

Yes, I said, my dear wife Karen and I would make a weekend stop.

The owner fellow talked a good game. Nice guy. Unfortunately, most of his chat with me was about how they had not yet started to make the sugar free varieties listed on the bottom right of the menu.

He suggested I order a regular slice and eat half of it at a time. I told him no thanks, explaining how I wished not to tease the diabetes gods.

One bite made me smile.

My small sampling of Karen’s cherry cream was quite tasty. It was good enough for a return trip when they announce on the Big Mama’s Cheesecake Co Facebook page that sugar free has made its debut.

  1. Many, many, many years ago I had a slice of cheescake at Lindy’s on New York City’s 7th Avenue, and it was good, but Big Mama’s sounds like it alone would be worth a trip to Syracuse.


  2. that would be so hard to resist, but you are very good at doing so and your health is happy about that. I’ve been trying to do more of that with sweets, just have one wonderful bite of something and move on. most of the time it works for me, but not always. now if I was to encounter salty, crunchy, greasy carbs, the game is over and I cannot even have them in my house. )
