Smoky Goat Gouda Pimento Cheese

Smoky Pimento Cheese I love pimento cheese!  And I haven’t been able to make it or eat it since 2014 when I finally acknowledged that I just couldn’t handle dairy anymore.   In the old days, I used to make this killer recipe – Died and Went To Pimento Cheese Heaven!

The Weekly Menu Oct. 23, 2017

What’s On the Menu this week? Well we’re making a lot of pasta and meatballs this week, because I’ve had trouble with my teeth and I’m searching for soft foods that are easy to chew.
