But I got into the swing of things, sorta and we had fun last night. I'll tell you all about it at the end of this post.
I'll tell you all about it in a later post.
But for now, let me share what everyone else brought, and then I'll tell you about my adventures...
And I had some, in the kitchen.
First up. These mushrooms, and just after I took the picture I sampled one, and then went back and sampled more.
What can I say, I love Mushrooms.
Everyone went wild for this. Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge. I got the recipe and will be making it soon, for us. And I'll share with you as well.
And then there was me...
Or rather what I made. Some Spring Rolls, which I've made before and will make again, I'm sure.
Crockpot Pork Loin, which my sister made the last time I visited with her. Hers was much better.
Deviled Eggs with Black n' Bluesy Seasoning from Legions of Spice. I just added a teaspoon of the spice to my already prepared egg filling, which gave it that lovely orange tint along with some extra flavour. They gave me some of the seasoning to play with, and so far I've used it with the Cajun Shrimp Spring Rolls I made the other day, as well as the eggs today. I'm thinking this would be great for Halloween eggs as well.
And now for the adventures...
I wanted to make some Za'atar Pita Crisps to go with the Za'atar Hummus I'd made, but the first pan burnt. These were actually the only ones I rescued. The second panful, ended up as an offering to the Kitchen Goddess, aka, the garbage can. And I did eat a few along the way as well. I like semi-blackened bread products.
What can I say?
At least I assume they were, since the plate got cleaned up.
For the first time, ever... We only had one dessert, and it was so popular I thought things might get ugly, in case people didn't want to share (just kidding, sheesh).
I ran, well, walked quickly, to the freezer and grabbed out a Danish Almond Slice cake, which I also call a Kringle. Thawed it, sliced it and set it out.
It disappeared as well.
I've got the wine glasses washed and put away, the kitchen is tidied up and I'm going to go and relax for awhile.
