Vacation Update Numero Two: Pool Party! and Pimento Cheese
It’s time for another Summer Update. This one’s about…Pool Party! I think I’m still recovering from a long, hard weekend of cold beers, underwater photos, limoncello shots, diving into the “No Diving” end, hot sausages, pimiento cheese, some stuff I shouldn’t talk about, and one lost flip flop. Several things to celebrate this past weekend: Mr. Alan’s un-birthday, BF’s nursing school milestone, and Mark’s new found awesomeness at playing DJ Hero. Let’s begin.
(And on the side, here’s my recipe for pimiento cheese which is very delicious despite what your friend told you. Also, has anyone seen my flip flop?)
|Pimento Cheese Recipe||
Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 10 mins
Best pimento cheese you’ll ever eat!
- 1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar
- 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 Tablespoons mustard ( I like dijon or spicy brown, but whatever)
- 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
- 4 oz jar pimientos, drained and chopped
- Optional: 1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped OR pickled jalapenos, chopped OR 2 tablespoons Ajvar
- Mash all that together. It helps if the cream cheese is softened.
- Eat that with healthy stuff like celery sticks or just make a sandwich.
No lyin’ or frontin’, this is the BEST pimento cheese I have ever EVER had. I don’t know Hilah from Adam, I just randomly came across a party of exceptionally good looking people at the pool on Saturday. While they were busy with that Jacques Cousteau business underwater, I covertly commandeered a spoonful of this orangey goodness, then another, then another, then I was rubbing it on tortillas, on bread, on my palm – EGAD! It’s summer picnic heaven. Plain and simple.
I don’t know you, either, but I can tell by your picture that you’d never lie or front on me or anyone. Thanks, bro.
I’m looking forward to “Vacation Update Número Tres”! It looks like you are having loads of fun.
I will try out this recipe very soon.
Thanks! I gotta figure out how to put accentos on my Spanish words!
sounds mmm, mmm, good! especially on a hot day. i’m going to go make some now.
Thanks for visiting my blog, glad I was able to shed some light on the wonders of purslane! How was the water at Port A? the last 2 times we’ve gone the beach and shore were full of sargasso seaweed, yuck. But we love it and want to go again. Gimme your seashore forecast!
We didn’t see much in the way of seaweed when we were there at the end of July, but a friend of mine went the following weekend and took pictures that showed piles of seaweed on the beaches. Literal piles, a foot tall, of seaweed. Serious yuck! Unless you can eat it…?
Nice feet. I can’t eat all this cheese though. My dog likes it though.
