Summer.....Kissed by the Sun

At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun.

People take pictures of the summer, just in case
 someone thought they had missed it, and to prove that it really existed.

Need an idea for a delicious summer sandwich that the entire family will enjoy? When everyone is splish-splashing in the pool, this recipe is enough to make everyone take time for lunch and then catch a siesta before evening fun!

1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup grated sharp cheddar
1 cup grated Monterey Jack
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 t. garlic powder
3 tablespoons pimentos, chopped finely 
1 teaspoon grated onion
Cracked black pepper, to taste
2 t. Tabasco sauce
Cooked bacon slices, 2 per sandwich
Fresh tomato slices
Rye Bread

Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Add all of the remaining ingredients and beat until well blended. Estelle's always uses a good jewish rye bread for this sandwich. Prepare the sandwich by spreading a little butter on each side of the bread. Spread with the pimento cheese mixture, add two slices of bacon, two fresh tomato slices...then grill to your desired preferance. This is a terrific sandwich and goes beautifully when paired with tomato soup!
