As you know I’m Southern, when I was growing up this was a mainstay in our house…Pimento Cheese! Not all Southerners like Pimento Cheese as it turns out, The Husband wrinkles his nose when I crave it. I ate at a fun place in Midtown Atlanta twice last week (South City Kitchen), on the weekends they serve Pimento Cheese as an appetizer! This is what got me thinking about P.C. Sometime restaurants around town offer Pimento Cheese Burgers…I’ve never eaten one of those but I’m going to try one sometime! This is NOTHING like the P.C. you get prepackaged in the grocery store. My mom made it but sadly I never got her recipe. I did however find one online and (as usual) changed it up a bit…
You could also eat this as a sandwich on white bread…that’s the way Mama used to serve it!
*1/2 lb. sharp cheddar
*1/4 lb Monterey Jack
*4 ounce jar of pimentos (drained)
*1 kosher dill spear (chopped fine)
Cut ingredients except pimentos into large chunks. Place all ingredients in food processor and pulse just long enough to roughly chop. Don’t puree.
Put in large bowl and mix with 5-7 tablespoons of Duke’s Mayo…(or whatever mayo you like!)
Refrigerate but set out for 20 minutes before use.
Okay…my next little random food is fun and exciting for two reasons…the first reason: they’re Smore Cookies!!! We’re talking graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows…now that’s what I’m talkin about! These are EASY! And when I pulled them out of the oven all gooey and warm I thought ‘this would be perfect for a kids sleep over snack!!!!’ Then I poured a mug of milk and thought ‘these are also good for a 47 year olds late night snack‘…and I ate 4 right before bed. They were GOOD Peeps!
Remember I said they were fun and exciting for two reasons? Well the second reason is that the recipe is from the new website by the Pioneer Woman!!! You know how much you love her at Confessions of a Pioneer Woman? Well you are going to double … no triple love her when you see Tasty Kitchen...you’ve probably already seen it but just in case I had to try these and send you right over to look around …the recipe for these yumalicious little temptations is here...
