A Treat for the Tastebuds

I am getting in trouble for not posting often enough on this blog, so I am going to try to do better! I do have a billion pictures and they all have a story, so I should just go with that. I may have breaks in my posting, but at least I have stuck with it for this long. I would definitely have made it past "B" in my alphabet! :)
On to more serious matters... cake. Cheesecake. When Stacy was here we tried to do all things "New York" and she said she could not leave before we had some of that world-famous New York Cheesecake. It was her last night here and we had not managed to get any, so we made a special trip into midtown in search of the perfect slice.
We had gone to the Stage Deli on 7th Avenue for a pastrami sandwich one afternoon. I work in this area and it was easy for us to meet there. The sandwiches are piled high and served with a pickle on the side. We eyeballed the mountainous cheesecakes that day, but decided the mile-high pastrami was filling enough for that day. I digress... we are talking about cheesecake, not pastrami....
So... this trip back into midtown... we went into several delis in the area looking for the perfect cake and we were drawn back into the Stage Deli.
The other places looked wonderful, but there was something about that place that pulled us back in. We settled on the strawberry - split three ways. Three ways, you ask??? Yes. This is a serious slice - enough to satisfy three. Actually, more than just satisfy. It was enough to STUFF three. Just look at it!
It was so rich and creamy. I'd call it a "quintessential" ending to a New York trip...whatever that means. Yes, we finished the whole thing, and we were a few very happy people. No, we did not lick the plate. Not that we didn't think about it...

THAT CHEESE-CAKE IS NOT "JUST A SLIVER" IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE IT IS UP-TOWN.
