Creamy Garlic and Thyme Spread

Many people like flavored cheese spreads, and pay quite a bit of money for top quality products.  Why pay for expensive spreads, when you can make your own?  This recipe is dynamite and perfect for any occasion. The flavors are bold, as the garlic compliments the fresh herbs beautifully. I was hooked immediately, while also noting that I should be careful when speaking to others afterwards because of garlic breath. But, it is so worth it! You can top crackers or toasted bread with this spread. I kept toasting wheat sour dough bread and topping with this. Such a yummy late night snack, as the calories are very low. So awesome!

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
