Tapa's Night for March

 It's Tapa's time again, well it was on Saturday.   I try to do two dishes each time, one new recipe and one that seems popular with everyone.   I was just looking a blog called Newyorkerbyheart .  It's a Danish blog I've bookmarked and followed for a couple years now.   And the other day she had made this recipe, just one of those 'thrown together' type recipes and I had to 'steal' it, or at least part of it.  I thought it lent itself so nicely to appetizers.   
So simple, so easy and finger food friendly.    I made it in smaller pieces than she did, but OMG, was it good.
Chicken Bites

And for my everybody friendly dish, I made some Cheese Quesadilla's, some with jalapeno inside and some without.   I served them with some salsa for dipping.

I also did a third dish, well, it was supposed to be served with bread, but I forgot to pull the Sourdough bread out of the freezer so I served it as a dip with potato chips.   The dip itself disappeared, or at least most of it did, but it would have been so much better on some bread or in a wrap or...

Then there were the following dishes which were brought by our guests;

Potato and Tuna Salad with Deviled Eggs and Tomatoes

And to top off the evening, we even had LIVE entertainment, Debi Jordan graced us with a couple of songs and was accompanied by Doug on the drum.   

I'll post the Chicken Bites and Feta Cheese dip recipes and how-to's tomorrow.
