All my food-brain can think about is the forbidden.
unfiltered Sake
Lox Bagels

Instead I drink a lot of Jasmine tea. And today, I made some Boursin-style cream cheese to smear on toast with cucumbers or tomatoes & capers.

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 8 oz butter, room temp
  • 16 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 2 Tbsp grated parm (the real stuff, freshly grated)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh dill, minced or 1 tsp dried dill weed, crumbled 
  • 1 tsp each dried marjoram, basil, chives, black pepper, thyme 
  • 2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley
  • Have cheeses & butter at room temp. Crush garlic. Mix cheeses, butter and garlic. Add remaining ingredients, mix well.
  • Pack into a covered container, just large enough to hold the spread, & refrigerate.
  • To serve, bring to room temperature.
