Dad's Cheesecake-#SundaySupper

June 16, 2013

Welcome to this week's edition of #SundaySupper!  
Our host (and founder of #SundaySupper!) : Isabel at Family Foodie.

Of course, today's theme is very fitting..Father's Day.  Whew..time to be really honest.  This week has been a little tough. Tuesday was year since my Eliza was born.  And, of course, today is Father's Day.  Unfortunately, I lost my dad back in 1998.  
Me and my siblings with my dad circa 1970's..I will let you guess which one is me :)

My father's very favorite dessert was cheesecake. Nothing fancy, nothing too flashy. My mom's recipe.  It was served every year for his birthday.  It will be one of the little reminders of my childhood, for the rest of my life.  That's how much he loved it.   My Dad was a wonderful man. A great provider with a silly sense of humor, while still running a strict household.  He liked things organized, but, simple. 

Hence, the very simple above photo..served up just the way he liked it..with a fork to dig in.  
Happy Father's Day Dad.  Enjoy.
