Tapas for May 2017

It was Tapas Night this past weekend and this time round I wasn't the hostess. 
I know, right.
I got to play guest, and it reflected in the pictures, cause I missed getting shots of a few of the dishes including one I'd brought.
Here they are, the ones I did get pictures of.
There were wings,
 Sliders and slaw
 Frittata bites
 A Moroccan Seafood dish (Sorry don't remember the name of it)
 Marinated Olives
 Cantaloupe and Prosciutto wrapped cheese
 Mushroom Crostini
 Broccoli Slaw Salad
 Potato Salad
 Home made salsa and chips
 Roasted peppers
 Pasta Salad
 Couscous salad
 Hot dogs
Perfection Salad

I made a plate of shrimp along with some Homemade Cocktail sauce, and forgot to take a picture of it.
There was also Strawberry Jello salad, but my picture was too blurry to use.
Along with the Strawberry Jello Salad I also made and brought some Raspberry Soup and Kammerjunkere.

Hindbær Suppe (Raspberry Soup) for Soup Saturday Swappers

It's Soup Saturday Swappers time.   This is the time of the month where we make and post about a soup and then share it.  Each month has a different theme.    Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm started this group and since it's the third Saturday, it's time for soup. 
Camilla is our hostess this month, and she wanted us to do a Fruit Soup.  

Raspberry Soup (Hindbær suppe) with Kammerjunkere

Hey, I'm a Dane and we make a lot of  fruit soups.  
I mean.   I got this.  I'd made some Kammerjunkere for the Improv Cooking Challenge.  This month's challenge was Cookies and Cream.   
Kammerjunkere are served not only with Koldskål, but also with fruit soups of all kinds.   

Since I had a bunch of Kammerjunkere still left...  
And since they go so well with fruit soups...

I kinda cheated on this, but that's after I saw the price of fresh raspberries at the store. 
I'm sorry, but I'm not into mortgaging my house just yet to buy berries.  

I miss the good old days of running down to the field and picking pounds and pounds of raspberries.   And eating as many as I wanted, while picking.  

And you know, it's OK.  It all works.  
BTW, you need to try this combo, you do.  After taste testing it, I had to keep myself from eating the whole thing.   But I restrained myself, barely. 
This is going to be my contribution to Tapas Time this month.  I'm not hosting so I get to play. giggle.
