This month the Virtual Supper Club is taking a trip to the Oscars. I chose to represent one of my favorite movies of all time, The Help. While I would have loved to made,eaten, and shared with you an amazing recipe for Fried Chicken or a Chocolate Pie, alas, I had to go with something that would not kill my diet. These Pimento Cheese Tea Sandwiches were just the right bite and a southern favorite for sure!

Pimento Cheese Tea Sandwiches
My Aunt Ann and I went to watch “The Help” when the movie was out in theaters.  We never laughed nor cried so much at one movie so much. It was a perfect afternoon movie date with my Aunt and the movie really was heart touching to me. When Minny brought that Chocolate Pie to Miss Hilly and watched her eat it and then promptly told her what to eat, I about died laughing! If you haven’t seen this movie, then I highly recommend you watch it!

    This an ole Southern gal has a soft spot in her heart for pimento cheese. It's interesting to see a lighter version and I will definitely give it a try. I've visiting from More Than Burned Toast.

    What a great film, Shelby! I saw The help with my daughter and we loved it also! I'd never heard of Pimento Cheese until my daughter's friend from Arkansas mentioned it as a Southern staple of parties and school lunches. It really IS tasty! What a great post for 'Going to the Oscars'!
