Monogram Shower

On Saturday I had my monogram shower and it was so much fun. After the shower I had to model some of my new "ELR" gear.

I got 5 "ELR" aprons at my shower. So the girls that hosted the shower each put one on for a photo session. I hope that all the aprons help with my cooking skills. :)

Thanks girls for hosting this shower it was so much fun.

  1. Marinated Cheese

    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup white wine vinegar
    1 (2 ounce) bottle diced pimento, drained
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    3 tablespoons minced green onions
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon sugar
    3/4 teaspoon dried basil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 (8 ounce) package Cheddar cheese
    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cold


    1. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the olive oil, wine vinegar, pimento, parsley, green onion, garlic, sugar, basil, salt and pepper. Shake vigorously to blend. Set aside.

    2. Cut the block of Cheddar cheese in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 1/4 inch slices to form squares. Repeat with cream cheese. Arrange cheese squares alternately in a shallow baking dish with slices standing on edge. You can arrange in a single long row, or 2 parallel rows depending on the size of your dish. Pour the marinade from the jar over the cheese slices, cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

    3. To serve, remove slices to a serving platter so they are still arranged in an alternating pattern. Spoon some of the extra marinade over the cheese, and serve with crackers.
