Giving + Pimento Cheese

Sorry I didn’t post this yesterday. I wasn’t really feeling spiritually adept enough to write about God- I want being a very good example of a Christian, so why should I ask you all to be? Never fear, though! Here is yesterday’s post:

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

This chapter (and this verse, in particular) is just sublimely beautiful. Be on the lookout for more from that chapter sometime soon!

Anyways, often we think of giving as, well, giving.

Food drives, soup kitchens, cash donations.

While these are very (very!) worthwhile and wonderful things to do, God also calls us to use what he has given us to help others- like this little ol’ blog here. I’m trying to make this a contribution of mine. :)

God gave us each individual, admirable talents to be used not for our own glory, but for His. We should use those talents to show others his beautiful glory and give to others all that God has given us- compassion, forgiveness, a forever-listening ear.

That’s a lot to pile on our plates, but just what does God do for all of us every single day?

To celebrate the end of National Grilled Cheese Month (actually, no, it was just a coincidence, but we can pretend), I made you all a Turkey Tomato Pimento Cheese Sandwich!

A dish with a title as long as that should be very delicious, no?

Mmm. It was.

This recipe is so easy I can barely call it a recipe! But I can- the pimento cheese is homemade and, as you all should have figured out by now, slightly healthier. Slab some of that cheesy goodness on a pretzel roll, toast it up, and add tomato, lettuce, turkey, red pepper flakes, and a bit of s + p; and you’re golden! Here’s how to make the pimento cheese:

1 cup fat free shredded cheddar
1/2 cup shredded cheddar jack
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
1 tablespoon pimentos
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Enjoy!
