A Tasty Treat for a Spring Luncheon

I love  the fresh taste of Spring.  One fond remembrance is the tangy taste of Olive Cream Cheese Spread on date bread.  My first taste of this delicious spread was in Key West back in the 70's at a Duval Street restaurant.  




The NEXT best thing I found this week is 
Ritz Everything Crackers!   A savory cracker 
with Onion, Poppy Seeds, Garlic & Sea Salt!

This sounds like a spread I would really enjoy as I am an olive lover.

Great minds think alike! I've made this countless times and it's on my blog when I first started doing it. I'm rushing out to buy date bread to go with it! And then I have to look for those crackers! I'm drooling big time... And Duval Street, been there many times... It's still cold and rainy here, grass starting to green and then there's Key West...
