Growing up, I don’t think Pimiento Cheese was a staple at home. If ever it was only in the form of CheezWhiz which I would use to spruce up a kiddie macaroni and cheese. I honestly do not know why I even started wanting Pimiento Cheese. Must have been something I saw on the Food Network and started craving for it. After browsing through several recipes, I got a little ingredientsfrom here and there and concocted my own.
The first batch I made was for my son’s Teacher’s Day get together. My son wanted cheese sticks but I wasn’t in the mood for wrapping individual sticks. Since my son said that the student council was ona budget, then I had to scrimp on the ingredients but definitely not the flavor. I haven’t heard feedback from the teachers yet. Let’s see.
The second batch was more expensive because of the ingredients I used. Definitely richer and stronger in flavor because I used Seriously Strong Cheddar Cheese and Mature Cheese from a company called Mclelland. But it was good.
I made my son bring a jar to his friend’s houses yesterday. They must have enjoyed and their mother’s want to order from me. Teehee.
I have always been fascinated with Mason Jars. I like the rustic home vintage feel it brings. Not to mention it’s recyclable. Just check out Pinterest and the amount of ideas you get is overwhelming. I’m big on ordering things on line. I found this local site that had Ball™ Mason Jars. Ordered a couple pint size both regular and wide mouth jars. Oooh all the things I could think of were already racing through my head.
Of course the first thing I think of is FOOD or anything related to it. Teehee.
Vietnamese Style Iced Barako Coffee; Fill the bottom of the jar with 1-2 tablespoons condensed milk, add ice cubes, pour in your daily brew.
Overnight Refrigerator Strawberry Oatmeal. 1 cup oats of your choice (old fashion or rolled oats), 1 cup milk, cleaned and halved fresh strawberries. Refrigerate overnight. Serve the next day.
Overnight Refrigerator Mango Oatmeal. Same procedure as the first one.
Lemon Ginger Honey Tea. 1 cleaned and sliced lemon, 1 knob of sliced ginger, 2-3 tablespoons honey. Add hot water and enjoy.
