Boat Club for January

The first Boat Club gathering of this year was overwhelming, almost, but not quite, in the amount of dishes that were brought and shared.
Honestly, I couldn't taste everything, but I tried.    And everything I tasted was very good. 

I get blown away every month by the sheer skill of the cooks and variety of the food brought.    Let me share...

And please note, if I missed any dishes, I'm sorry, please forgive me.   And I do try to take clear pictures, but don't always succeed...

We had... 
Appetizers, 

 Deviled Eggs, one of those dishes that always gets eaten. 
 Pimento Cheese.  A southern kind of thing, and something I need to learn how to make.  
 Egg rolls.  Cute aren't they?  and in the background, some cashews. 
 Smoked salmon with a little sour cream on top, served on little potato crisps.  (alright so they're known as potato chips).     What a cool idea. 
Can't miss with little chicken nuggets dipped in a buffalo sauce.












Side Dishes and Salads


This incredible salad.  Very tasty. 
 I made a Chinese Chicken Salad, the recipe for which I will share later on. 
 A pasta cheese bake.  And you know me, I saw Pasta! and had to try it.  And it was worth it.
 This was a very interesting dish.  A selection of vegetables in a curry sauce.  I have no idea who brought it, but OMG, was it good.   Of course I love curry, so I was sucker for this one.










This is how they make green beans in the south.  Lots of ham, potatoes and flavour.    I have to say, if I had known you could dress up vegetables with ham, I think I would have eaten more veggies growing up. Just kidding.  But really, it does dress up a plain vegetable. 

 Look at this gorgeous salad.   And it was good.  Salads are a good thing. 











Breads

I made a loaf of my No-Knead bread.  Which I practice making at least 3 times a week.  
 Corn bread, which by the way goes very well with the green bean dish.   Just saying.
I believe this is what is known as spoon bread, but I didn't get a chance to try it.  Again, this would go very well with the Green bean dish. 










to entree's,
 Look at this.  There was a whole big dish of Quail.   I mean how often do you see that at a potluck?   And you know I snagged one.   It's been a long time since I've had quail.   
BBQ chicken wings, and they were good as well. 















And finally, Dessert.  


A lovely pumpkin pie.   And there was whipped topping to go on top. 












All I can say is this, a person needs to go into training to attend one of our events.


Just kidding.
