Once that was all done, I made a cheesy herb dip which we enjoyed with olives and crackers out on the back deck. Even Alexander had some and he must've liked it because he kept coming back for more. Oh my - olives and dip! That boy is turning out to be quite the gourmet, don't you think? Here's the recipe, if you're interested...
1 garlic clove, chopped
200g cream cheese
3 tablespoon mixed fresh herbs (I used golden oregano, chives, purple basil and parsley), chopped
2 tablespoon grated tasty or cheddar cheese
A pinch of ground smoked paprika
1. Melt butter in frying pan over low heat. Add garlic and fry until fragrant. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
2. Add cream cheese chopped herbs, cooled butter and garlic mix into a food processor and pulse until combined. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
3. Add grated cheese and use a wooden spoon to stir into the mixture until it forms a paste. Sprinkle over paprika and serve with crackers.
