When you have a spouse and your spouse spends time with your mother he is realizing what you will soon become.
Luckily for me Adam likes my mom. Which is good because in about 25 years that is what he's going to get but probably with a few extra pounds and a dash of Gianeskis sarcasm.
My mom makes a mean Pimento and Cheese Dip (among many other things!) and Adam can't get enough of it. After trying to recreate it here in Chicago I realized that this must really be a southern thing because I had to search high and low for some of the ingredients, but it was worth it.
Anna's Pimento + Cheese

1/4 t each S & P
1/4 t Chipotle Chili Powder
1/4 t Garlic Powder
What you will do:
First microwave cream cheese in a bowl for about a minute until melted and smooth. Stir. Add in the pimentos.
