We end up with lots of great food, conversation and it's always a 'hygglig' evening when we host Tapas.
I know I have fun preparing the food, I sometimes wish there were little elves who could magically appear and do the housekeeping for me, so I can concentrate on just making food.
But then I get into making my contribution for the night and also get to taste some of the great food people take the time and effort to make and bring with them.
And trust me on this, there's always, always great food brought and shared.
We have some incredibly talented and inventive cooks in our neck of the woods.
If you go home hungry, that's your problem and not mine. There is usually something for everyone here.
Pimento Cheese on bread, this is somewhat of a southern specialty.
And can't forget what ended up on the 'island', Chicken Provincial, with a sauce that was totally dip worthy.(and I know I spelled that wrong)
These were Italiensk Salat on ham and some Frisk Stegt Log med Peberrød sauce on some roast beef
Fransk Salad (I still have a little in the fridge)
Karrysild (Curried Herring) alongside some home made rye bread.
In the back, Rugelah and Black and White cookies, some Pecan Pie and Chocolate Chip cookies
