Happy Weekend

I hope you have some delicious plans for the weekend.  If your agenda includes a party and you need an hors d'oeuvres idea, here is an easy one that everyone loves.

This simple recipe is just a few easy ingredients combined in a delicious spread for crackers or bread.  I enhanced the smoked flavor of the turkey with about 1/2 teaspoon Liquid Smoke.  Hubby suggested the addition of chopped dried cranberries for color and texture.  

1 8 oz package cream cheese
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 cup (about 6 oz) coarsely chopped, smoked, fully cooked turkey
1/2 cup chopped pecans
6 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Combine cheese and mayonnaise (and Liquid Smoke if using) in a food processor and blend.  Add chopped turkey and process until a paste forms.  Remove to a bowl and add chopped pecans and parsley.  
Serve with crackers and/or bread.  
Have a lovely weekend.
