We had Boat Club last night and I decided to make two things for it. I'd been given some Persimmons by a friend and wanted to try making a cake from them, and I also had some potatoes I'd bought the last time I was in the 'big city,' and had planned on using them in some kind of dish.
I decided to make some Smash Taters and they went over well.
However, I know you're dying to see what great dishes were brought and shared.
You are, aren't you?
Too bad, cause here they are:
First off, the appetizers...
And there's the Pineapple and you can see the Santa toothpick holder in the background.
I know you wait to see him in every post where we have a round up of great dishes.
Next up, the side dishes and the main dishes.
One of these days, I have to learn how to cook a ham so it doesn't dry out. sigh.
And now for the desserts. And as usual, we had some very good ones.
I made a Persimmon Pudding Cake with a Cream Cheese Marshmallow Fluff frosting.
I'll be sharing the how to's and what not to do, later on this week.
And for a change, I actually sampled all the desserts and I can tell you, they were all good.
Well, that's the round up for this month. I need to go take a long hike to try to burn off some of the calories from last night.
Gotta start planning what I'm going to make for the next Tapas Night.
I've got ideas...
