Righteous Herb Cheese Spread

Make sure everyone eats this, because the flavors are very strong and you'll want everyone to smell like garlic! I've been making this for years, always on Thanksgiving but other times as well. It was named by my sister-in-law, Beth.

Righteous Herb Cheese Spread

This spread is great with crackers or vegetables. It also is good as a sandwich spread, especially with roast beef. Another way I serve it is in sliced cucumber rounds, about 3/4 inch thick. If you salt the cucumbers, let them sit in a colander layered with paper towels, rinse, and pat dry, the cucumbers won't "sweat."

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill weed (or 1 heaping T. dried)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil (or 1 heaping T. dried)
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together. Chill to let flavors blend.
