Sometimes a very simple idea can be so good. Not just a cheeseburger – a pimento cheeseburger. Why has this not occurred to me before? Probably in part because it’s only within the last year that I was introduced to pimento cheese. Clearly, I’m not a southern girl. In any case, I’m very glad to have come across the idea. The pimento cheese is all the condiment you need for this burger. These were a melty cheesy mess and totally delicious. (And perfectly accompanied by the soda I treat myself to once every three months or so. Mmmm.) Next time I may try these with a tex-mex version of pimento cheese like in the best cheese dip ever. My, oh my.
This meal is a splurge for sure, but definitely worth the indulgence on occasion. On a related note, you know what’s another simple yet fabulous idea? Spontaneous picnics in the yard. We recently invested in a set of patio furniture. Andrew was bursting with excitement for its delivery but unfortunately it was still a few days away. He just couldn’t wait anymore so I told him we could eat dinner that evening as a picnic in our yard. You would have thought he had won the lottery. He thought this was so super cool. Admittedly, it did make an already wonderful dinner even better. I mean, great food and then family cuddles on a blanket in beautiful weather? I don’t know how it gets better than that.
