We all ate our fill of soup, salad, veggies, fried rice, and Hibachi shrimp and steak. My younger son, who was up way past his bedtime, ate until he was beyond full then tucked his exhausted head under my arm. He fell asleep in the car as soon as we left the restaurant. What a peaceful drive home!
One of Eric's favorite desserts is cheesecake. I pulled out an old recipe that he's always enjoyed. It's so simple and delicious. He enjoyed a slice before he left for another marathon work schedule. But, I'm glad he made it home to celebrate for a little while.
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
1-16.5 oz. tube refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
3-8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of a 9"x13" baking dish. Combine the remaining ingredients until smooth and pour over the cookie dough. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Keep refrigerated.
Happy Birthday, Eric!
