The Master's Tournament, Waynesboro County Club, and Pimento Cheese

On this Easter weekend, hubby and friends are recreating their own Master's Tournament at the Waynesboro Country Club. 
Each player drew a partner's name from the Master's roster after Round 2 was completed.

I understand that Pimento Cheese is a Master's tradition.  So in honor of the tradition, I've made my pimento cheese spread to entertain my lady friends...
1 8 oz. block* of extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 8 oz block* of sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/3 cups mayonnaise
1 4oz jar diced pimento
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon grated onion
1/8 teaspoon red pepper

* Block cheese is a must.  Preshredded does not work nearly as well!

1.  In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, pimento, Worchestershire sauce, grated onion, and red pepper.
2.  Grate the cheese using two graters-one with a  small shredding side and one with a large shredding side.
For instance, grate the extra sharp cheese using the small size and the sharp cheddar cheese on the large size.
3.  Add the grated cheeses to the mayo mixture.  Stir thoroughly and chill for several hours. (I use a hand mixer or food processor) 
4.  Enjoy!

This will make almost  4cups of pimento spread.. 
Happy Easter from Applejack Lane!

April Fool's Day

It's April Fool's Day at Applejack Lane.  I hope Mother Nature is not pulling a trick on us with the gorgeous weather we have been having these last few weeks. These are some of the views outside my windows.

Apple blossoms for  Applejack Lane...
 Our Lynwood forsythia has never been fuller...
The white Bleeding Heart made it through low 30 degree temps, but the red one is limping along...
The Cherokee Brave Dogwood is more heat tolerant for our windy hill...

Join me again soon!
