Lots of salads, bowls of fruit, raw veggies with Al-Amir hummus and cheese with crackers; all hot weather-friendly dishes.
However, The Lady holds the keys to my cheese fridge, which she keeps stocked, and today she made yet another pimento cheese combining cheddar and gouda. This time she used a wedge of Parrano and Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar.
Here’s what she did…
6 Ounces Chopped Pimento, with juice
6 Ounces Mayo
1 pound Extra Sharp Tillamook Cheddar
1/2 pound Parrano
Using the food processor, she blended the pimento, pimento juice and mayo. Adding the shred plate, she added the cheeses and blended until almost creamy…
Now about that cake… The Lady and I avoid issues but decided to join Reverend Jesse Jackson, President Jimmy Carter and a couple million fans in showing solidarity with Paula Deen. This weekend is her son’s birthday and Jamie’s favorite cake is coconut. The Lady made one using Ms. Deen’s recipe from her Southern Cooking Bible, which you can buy on Amazon by clicking on the icon below. Of course, now we have coconut cake around The Manse; so it was a win-win… just sayin’…
