Peanut Butter Chocolate vs. Strawberry – This is gonna be good!

This week’s quarterfinal matchup of the First Ever Cheesecake Playoffs pits the upstart #3 seed Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake against the classic (and yummy) #6 seeded Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake.

The Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake just came out this year – a newcomer to the stalwart cheesecake menu of the Cheesecake Factory.  In fact, when we started tasting every cheesecake on the Cheesecake Factory’s menu at the beginning of this year, it wasn’t even available. 

Personally, I really liked it (of course, ranking high with the Farris Clan with a solid ranking of 24 out of a possible 30…).  It seems to be a cross between the 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake and Adam’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple Cheesecake (apparently, merging the #1 and #2 seed together yields only the #3 seed – or at least they add…   1+2=3?…)

Hey, and also Stephanie is having her birthday this Saturday – so, woo woo!  We’re going to celebrate at the Thousand Oaks Cheesecake Factory after a full day of Monroeness. 

First, a soccer game and then a little studying…  Then, we go to practice shooting and rebounding in preparation for her girls basketball tourament this weekend.  She has a first round game, and depending on whether her team wins or loses, we may have to hoof it to another gym across town for the second game (yes, you heard me right – TWO basketball games on Saturday, in addition to her morning soccer game!…).

This leaves us with scheduling an intimate birthday dinner for Stephanie at around 8:00 PM (and I’m sure Monroe will be DOG tired!…).  And certainly, we’ll be celebrating another round of “delectaliciousness” with the Cheesecake Playoffs.

We’ll post the winners (and birthday pics!) later on in the weekend!…
