To make a short story long...
The other day I was at work and, as I didn't have any work to do, I was reading The Journals of Sylvia Plath (so good!). At one point she happened to mention cream cheese. So, of course, my mind started wandering...I started daydreaming about that wonderful, smooth, deliciousness. It occurred to me that it could be really delicious to take cream cheese, add fresh chopped herbs, and make a dip out of it (I know, I'm soo creative and original!).
So, when I got home, that's what I did.
The first time, I just added thyme, and I ate it right away, so it wasn't very strong. The second time I added thyme and basil and then let it sit for 15 ish minutes before eating it (I had to walk away to maintain my self control), and it was delicious! But I will warn you - that basil stuff is strong. Don't add too much, or it could be overwhelming. Unless you really like basil...in which case, you might like a ton.
Cream Cheese and Herb Cracker Dip
- Cream cheese
- Fresh herbs
- Crackers - I recommend Wheat Thins
Cut a chunk of cream cheese (I used about 1/4 of a cube for myself ). If you wanted to take the lazy way out (or if you were in a hurry), you could microwave the cream cheese for a few seconds to soften it up some. Chop up your herbs and stir them into the cream cheese. Let sit for 10 minutes, and enjoy. Chill leftovers in the refrigerator.
