That took courage for me to say on Superbowl Sunday. 😉
I had the great good fortune to marry a man from Ireland, who never followed American football and still doesn’t. Still, in the spirit of the day, I searched to find an easy thyme-containing snack recipe. Thyme is for courage, remember? https://cecigiltenan.com/2014/01/25/thyme-is-for-courage.
I found this easy recipe at Taste of Home.
Creamy Thyme Spread
8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, thyme, parsley and garlic; mix well. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Serve with crackers.
This one from The Food Network also looks interesting.
Thyme and Honey Ricotta Spread
1 1/2 cups fresh ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons whole fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon good-quality olive oil
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
Crostini, for serving
Place the ricotta in a shallow serving dish. Gently warm the honey and thyme in a small skillet over medium-low heat until fragrant and the honey just begins to bubble, about 4 minutes. Pour over the ricotta. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Serve with crostini.
If you aren’t too interested in Football, you could enjoy these snacks with a nice glass of wine while reading a good romance!
