Boat Club Potluck for October

Here's the monthly update for Boat Club.   I knew you were waiting to see what fun dishes were brought.   And as usual we had a good turnout, and the food was good.    We did have a few desserts this month, some months we don't have any.  But it all works out well.   My contribution this month were Lime Tarts, made with fresh limes that had been given me.   And I'll write about the fun I had with them in another post.
But for now, here's the line up.
Lime Tarts with Whipped Cream
 I made some Lime Tarts from some fresh Limes I received from Frances.
 Frances brought two Lime Pies made from some of her fresh limes.
 Here are the limes she brought to share with everyone last night.  
 Kathy brought some really yummy BBQ chicken, I got a wing, my favorite part and ended up licking my fingers.  It was very good.
 Then Quinn brought some fried chicken and guess what?  I managed to find a wing there as well.  I was a very happy person, two kinds of chicken and I got my favorite part from each of them. 
 BBQ riblets, very tasty, sorry for the poor picture, but for some reason, I could not get a good clear picture of them.
 Tortellini, yummy.  I think I could have gone for seconds or even thirds on them.  I forgot to ask the name of the dish though.   Take my word for it, they were good.
 Potato Salad.   I love Potato Salad, really, and it amazes me how many different ways there are to make it.  
 So who doesn't like Brownies?  I managed to grab a piece before they all disappeared.  And it happened to be a corner piece, I love them the best.
 I was told this was Uncle Tostito's special recipe dip.   And it was good.  Chips and dip are always good. 
 Potato Salad, again, very good.   Harriet has introduced me to a couple of different variations on potato salad. 
 Crab Dip.   Creamy, rich, good.   I just don't think you can go wrong with crab.  Or at least not too wrong. 
Trifle.   Didn't it look pretty?  And it tasted so good as well.  Notice the lime leaves that were tossed so artistically at the base of the bowl?
I loved the blueberries on top as well, reminds me of picking blueberries on our farm when I was a teenager.  (don't tell my mother but I ate my share before they got in the basket).

So, there you have it, another Boat Club Monday and the food we got to eat.      And I will be sharing my adventures with the Limes I got from Frances as well as what I made with them, probably tomorrow.
