30-Before-30: Pimento Cheese

After several tries, I just couldn't give up TV for a week for one of my 30 things. It was just more fun to make a tasty new dish instead. Guess I should have tried giving up TV on a week I was busy, it's too tempting when I'm home on summer break. :)

I had never thought of pimento cheese as something you could make at home until my friend Ruth mentioned it.  It's super easy and something I'll definitely make again - I didn't even know Matt liked pimento cheese, but it turns out he likes it even more than I do!
