Turkey Stock and Pimento Cheese Spread

I have to make some easy food for the kids after school program this week since I am busy cooking for Thanksgiving.  I made them a big meat, cheese and fruit platter this morning (forgot to take a pic of it) and I made them some pimento cheese spread.  The recipe is below.
 I harvested some of my celery yesterday.

 And today I am making pots of turkey stock to make turkey gravy.  My house smells like Thanksgiving.

 I doubled the pimento cheese recipe but I will give you the makings of a single recipe.  Combine 1 - 8 oz. bar of cream cheese, 2 cups of grated cheddar cheese, 1/3 cup of mayo, 1 tsp. of your favorite seasoned salt, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, 1 small grated onion, 1 tsp. granulated garlic and 4 tablespoons of diced pimento. Mix thoroughly and refrigerate for at least a few hours.

 I use the paddle attachment on my mixer to do this.

This is so good spread on crackers and makes a good Thanksgiving appetizer.
