Bacon and pimento cheese spread sandwiches

We had a truly revolutionary Bacon Wednesday a few weeks ago. Betsy made her grandmother’s pimento cheese spread. We used it on bacon and pimento cheese sandwiches.

Mystery boxes

A more traditional enterprise might call this inventory control. We just call it sorting.
