And boy did we have some great dishes that were brought.
I've actually given up being surprised by variety and the kinds of food people bring to Tapas Night.
I just enjoy it, and try to sample a little of everything.
I don't always succeed but, I try...
But best of all, are the conversations I get to have with our guests. A couple of months ago we had our front porch screened in, and then we put up a ceiling fan out there and people migrated in and out of the house, and it was wonderful.
But since this is a food blog, you're probably wondering just what all was brought.
Here are the dishes.
Pizza, with pineapple and ham. I know it has a name, just gotta think of it and look up how to spell it as well.
These are Blue Crabs which were caught yesterday and cooked.
(I ummm, took one of the claws and ate it. And it was good.)
And they were very good. I know who brought them so if I get the proper name for them, I'll tell you.
I was told this was spicy, but I didn't think so. I just thought it tasted great.
I have to admit to an inordinate fondness for Broccoli Salad. There is just something about the sweet tang that will keep me eating this.
I once made some to take to a gathering, but ended up 'tasting' too much of it, so had to substitute another dish.
It was totally worth it.
Look at all the great food. In the front is some Pineapple Salsa along with some Guacamole. In the back, is a Meatloaf that was brought.
I have to apologize, I didn't get as many pictures as usual.
We had a glass bowl shatter on the floor just as I was taking pictures, and when glass meets tile too abruptly, it gets messy, so I missed a couple of shots.
This is another view of the table. There was also a chickpea dish, the name of which escapes me at the moment.
And yet another view of the table.
I also made a couple of things.
A Kentish Pie. I actully made one a couple of years ago, and decided it was time to make it again.
This time round I cut the apples thicker, and used a different kind of bacon and I liked it a lot better.
And judging by the fact that this was the last piece left, I think it was a success.
Seeded Crackers, cause I like them, and they're just plain good.
And honestly, they're not hard to make, at all.
These are a large, and I do mean large mango, with a green skin. They look similar to a large avocado.
And the flavour was so wonderful. I used one of the mango's in a Mango Papaya Salsa on some salmon earlier in the week, but this one was destined for Tapas.
I think I need a couple more.
I do love a good Papaya as well.
I'll share how to make this at a later date.
No-Knead bread for Tapas. I wasn't really thrilled with this one, but it was pretty much eaten.
And now for the desserts...
I managed to not get a shot of the Pineapple, sigh.
But here are the rest of them.
I'm sorry I don't remember the name of this cake, but I had some and I loved it.
Chocolate Cake with a Chocolate whipped topping, I was told it was really good, moist and rich and delicious.
That's it for this month.
