Turkey Day is next week!
And it's Tapas Time again.
We had a few newbies, some familiar faces that we've been missing and are back for a few months, and lots and lots and lots of great food.
And this wasn't even all the food. sigh...
This is actually a before picture, I just had my offerings on the table. Well, a couple of them, I also made a cake, and some bread.
And Tapas was just last night.
Come to think of it, I found a few frozen wings in the freezer the other day, I think I need to cook them.
And the dip and crackers weren't bad either.
These are Crawfish Pies.
They were so good, spicy and rich and totally awesome.
Do I really need to say more?
OK, I will, they were delicious.
Look at how pretty. And it tasted wonderful.
There wasn't much left of it at the end of the night.
And ummm, klutz me, managed to accidentally dump the remainder on the driveway helping to carry it to the car, it slid right off the plate, whoosh and onto the driveway. I could have cried. I felt so bad.
We also had some olives and tomatoes and stuffed grape leaves. Which were a lovely end to the meal.
If you go home hungry from Tapas, it's your fault because there is always something for everyone.
and if you were wondering what I made,
I put together some Spring Rolls. This time I used some Napa Cabbage inside and I liked that a lot.
These are so easy to make, and if you eat a few, you don't need to feel at all guilty.
No-Knead bread. I don't dare make this often, cause we can eat the whole thing in one day.
And then there were desserts...
I made a Boston Cream Pie for a friend's birthday, and it was so good, I finally got 'THE' recipe. I'll share it later on this week.
And the custard filling, well, it had a neat twist as well.
The shot I took of the cookies was too fuzzy to use.
I love this stuff.
It's been years since I've made some, maybe it's time again?
When I tasted the raspberries, I got transported back to my youth, picking fresh raspberries in the summer on the farm.
If you're still with me, I just want to say that it's past time to get the turkey out of the freezer and into the fridge so it can start thawing for Turkey Day. I always figure on 24 hours for every 4 pounds of turkey.
