My first post here, and it's not even a recipe.

I've decided to let SeaPalmTreasures go back to what I first envisioned it as, a place for me to post my pictures, show off my crafts and expound on various and sundry matters.    So, this blog is going to feature food, and recipes and ideas on making food and stuff like that.

Once a month we host a Tapas Night at our place.   I have fun with this as it means I can try out new recipes, make tried and true recipes and I get to taste lots of new things as our friends bring their offerings.

Tapas means small plates, and when you have a Tapas night you make appetizer type food.   And ask people to bring an appetizer as well when they come, if they want to.   It always amazes me the variety of foods that are brought.   And I don't know if it's just because of where we live or I just have an incredibly talented group of friends, but there are some talented cooks in our area of the woods, and they love to share, (thank heavens).   I'm going to feature recipes that I make each month and also highlight and share the recipes of some of the other dishes brought.    Also, and very important, we have two rules for Tapas night.   Everyone's invited and the more the merrier.     In other words, we encourage people to bring friends we've not met yet, cause we love to meet new people. 

And I can't forget Boat Club either.   Once a month we get together at the local boat club and have a potluck.  Everyone brings something, and the variety of dishes is amazing and somehow it always works out.   We have main dishes, side dishes and desserts.   Well, with the exception of February, we did get a little dessert heavy that month.   I'm going to share what I make for Boat Club and again, feature some of the other interesting dishes that our friends make and bring.

 And please feel free to comment on my posts, ask questions and give me some hints.
