Boat Club for September

It was Boat Club this week again.   And as usual, there were a variety of dishes.   I've said this before and I'll say it again, we have some incredibly talented cooks in this neck of the woods.  And luckily they like to share their talents at events like our monthly potluck.
Before I get to the food offerings, I wanted to show you how pretty it is here.  So I took a couple of snapshots outside before heading in to the building.

There was a little confusion this month, the start time went from 7pm to 6pm, so some people came in a little later, and I didn't get pictures of their dishes.   However, as usual, we ran the gamut from appetizers, to main dishes, side dishes and desserts.   And this is all a totally uncoordinated effort.   We just bring what we feel like bringing.  And it always works out.
To start with, a perennial favorite, chips and salsa.

Next up a chicken and rice dish, which was lovely and spicy.   (Which I failed to get a picture of.)
I brought some Chile Verde and Chips

Then there were some lovely deep fried Pork Chops.  ( I do live in the south and fried is how a lot of food is prepared).

Next up, a Cornbread dressing, and I have to say, I finally found a Cornbread Dressing I like.

A lovely fresh fruit salad, which was really yummy, and last but not least a Lemon Meringue pie.
And one of our people brought a sample of southern stemware, and we all fell in love with it. I wish the picture was a little clearer, but basically it's a mason jar on a glass candlestick.    I have to get one of these for myself, it is too cute.

See, I told you it ran the gamut.   And then the stuff I didn't get a picture of, there were some hot wings, a fresh fruit and cheese plate, a chocolate pie and I'm sure I missed some other stuff, but hey, I was off duty, and was too busy enjoying my plate.  
Pork Chop, cornbread dressing, fruit salad, chicken and rice and chip and salsa and Chile Verde in the bowl. 

You know, potlucks are a lot of fun.   And I'm so glad I live in an area where we do potlucks on a regular basis.  There's just something about getting together with friends that's priceless.

    You are right Sid, everything was delicious and we do have some talented cooks who share their masterpieces with us. Tony is hoping you are going to share your chile verde recipe.

  2. Thank you. I'm happy to share the recipe. In fact I went ahead and linked it to the recipe when you click on the Chile Verde in the blog or just go to the Mexican tab and there is a link to the recipe there. If you care to share your recipe for the Cornbread dressing, I'd love to post it here. The holidays are coming up...


I love to hear from my readers, so please feel free to drop me a note, let me know if you like something I made, it makes my day.
