Off to have dinner with the Brown family tonight. We met the Brown family down at Saturday morning cricket. They are an awesome family and fun to hang out with. Have whipped up an old New Zealand friends cheesecake recipe from the 90’s, stumbled across it the other day in my old recipe book. I remember it being delicious. Hope it tastes as good as it looks
