Old School Thursday: Thank You for Being a Friend Edition

It’s a quiet day in food world. The only major event was the death of Jacob Perkins (1849). Perkins received the first U.S. patent for a refrigerating machine.

Just as well, anyway, since that gives us plenty of time to celebrate National Cheesecake Day. I’m actually not a huge fan of cheesecake myself (I’ll eat it, but I don’t order it), but I am a huge fan of the Golden Girls. And what’s more golden than cheesecake?

As an aside, I just learned from IMDB that the Golden Girls ate over 100 cheesecakes during the show's run (seven years) and that Bea Arthur hated cheesecake. Learning something new every day.
