Yours is by far the best!

Hey Martha. It was so great seeing you today. We came home and devoured the pimento cheese. We went with the girls for brunch a couple of weeks ago and they wanted to take back some pimiento cheese but then forgot it here.  I’m not big on that pimento cheese but since it was sitting in my fridge George and I decided to do a taste testing of both and ... no comparison. Yours is by far the best. Much much better! It’s delicious 😋
