Spinach Herb Cheese Spread

Currently I am sitting at my in-laws, little man is napping and the boys (i.e. husband and friends) have headed to the lake for the afternoon. I think all boys need a day with their buddies, no wives, no kids, no nagging, so that is what I gave them.

Thankfully, tomorrow all of us are headed to the lake - babies, kids, ladies and all. So, I'm looking forward to that. Until then, I'll sit in a quiet house and enjoy it.

Since I'm not at home, I cannot just run over to the kitchen and whip something up, but I thought I would share a cheese spread I created last week for the farmer's market. It's simple and easy, and can be eaten on crackers, with relishes, and my favorite as a spread on sandwiches.


Spinach Herb Cheese Spread
8 oz. cream cheese
4 T. Tastefully Simple Spinach & Herb Seasoning (dried spinach flakes, dried onion, dill, parsley, dried garlic)
1 T. garlic salt
1/2 c. parmesan cheese

Let cream cheese come to room temperature. Mix all seasonings into cream cheese and chill for at least an hour.

*If you don't have access to this seasoning mix, simply add the above mentioned seasonings until desired taste*

I'd like nothing better right now than a hot panini slathered with this stuff. Yum!

What are everyone's weekend plans? Tomorrow and Sunday are lake days for us. I need to head to Walmart and see if they carry life jackets for the little man....anyone know if they do? I'm in a small town, so unfortunately Walmart is my only option.

If not, we'll play on the beach:)

  3. That spread sounds excellent! I love anything with cream cheese.

    This weekend I am hanging out with friends - a little slumber party of sorts, and then taking it easy at home.

  4. have a great time at the lake! and yes they do make life jackets for babies...or infants. make sure it has what i call a "head rest" this insures that if he lands in the water it will flip him over! the others without it will not flip him over!

  5. I agree, men need their time and their space, away from us, just like we do. I hope you enjoyed that time, I know I always do!
