Low Carb Herbed Cream Cheese for a Romantic Bedtime Picnic

DH and I often watch old movies in bed and we have a snack platter to munch on. I like this herbed cream cheese on DH's hard-smoked salmon or crispy red apples. On the snack platter I include some of DH's favorites and low carbohydrate foods - salami, DH's hard-smoked salmon, cheeses, olives, grapes, rye krisps and pickles. For the cream cheese you can use dried herbs but let it sit all day to let the herbs re-hydrate.You can add anything you like to this recipe so make it your own. Now go make a plate of your favorites and pop in an old movie and enjoy your picnic.
