Pimento Cheese Spread and a word of thanks!

At last week's monthly Bridge gathering Kathy T. served this fantastic cheese spread from the May 2010 Southern Living magazine:

1-1/2 cups Hellman's mayonaise
4 oz. jar diced pimento, drained
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. onion, finely grated
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1 cup pecans, toasted in 350-degree oven for 8-10 minutes
8 oz extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, finely grated
8 oz. sharp Cheddar cheese, coarsely grated

Mix mayo, pimento, Worcestershire, onion and red pepper in large bowl. Stir in pecans and cheese. Store in refrigerator. Serve with celery sticks and crackers; or make toasted cheese sandwiches in skillet or panini press with the cheese spread.

Last week the Pencil Box Club received two personal thank-you notes from students who received backpacks at the LESA distribution in August. We also got a nice note from LESA Fill Backpacks for Kids Committee Co-chairpersons Jean Garratt and Denis McBride. They said:
Your efforts on behalf of children and families in the county will help children begin the school year with the necessary supplies for successful learning.
