It was Tapas Night last night, and as usual, lots of great food and fun.
And since we got our A/C unit replaced, it was actually nice and cool inside.
Well, with one slight exception, I'd turned the temp down earlier in the day, but we have the thermostat programmed to lower the temp around dinner time, and it kicked in, which set the temperature higher than I wanted. But it was all good, I turned it down again and lovely, lovely cool air wafted through the room, again.
But you probably want to know about the food.
We had some fun stuff. Let me show you.
We have such phenomenal cooks here, who really step up to the plate and shine. (Had to throw that in there since there's a baseball tournament being held this weekend, as well as a fishing tournament and a golf tournament). There weren't any foul balls, everything was on par and every dish hooked us all.
There, did I hit every sport?
Tough, I tried.
Here's the rundown. Of the dishes brought that is.
And it's one of those versatile grains/pasta items you can do so much with.
And I did make a few things along the way as well.
I made a Soba Noodle Salad, and I will share the recipe and my adventures with Soba Noodles later on.
I'll share my adventures with them later as well.
I had adventures in the kitchen, sigh. But it's all good. At least I didn't burn or cut myself and nothing ended up on the floor.
I also made some Caprese Bites and placed them in shot glasses and poured a little Quince Pomegranite White Balsamic Vinegar over them. And they were good.
I'll share the how-to's on that later on as well.
And now for the rest of the story.
In other words, we also had a nice selection of Desserts.
There was fruit in here. And Pistachio's and coconut and ...
I love it when someone does this. And with the hot weather outside, fruit does go down well.
Another of our guests brought a fruit plate, and again it was very tasty and fresh. And so pretty.
I think it was a fruity night. Cause there was also this Peach Layer cake which was eaten. I think there was a slice or two left at the end of the night.
