Boat Club for November

Monday night was Boat Club, which if you are a regular or semi regular or just happened upon this blog, is our monthly potluck gathering.   We always have great food, always a wide variety of foods, and best of all, we get to catch up with each other's lives.    This month was no exception.  We welcomed back a friend, who'd been out of town working for a few months, and the food, well let me just say this, YUM.
There were Jello shots (I'd never had one before, so it was fun to try it)

 Stuffed peppers, and if you know me, you know I scarfed up a couple, gotta have that heat.
 There was this very interesting Bean Salad.  Corn, Black Beans, Lime, Avocado, really unique. 
 Potato Cheese Soup, and you could top it with Bacon Bits and Cheese.
 Gumbo, and this was HOT, and soooo good.
I have no idea who brought it, but I want the recipe.  HINT!
 And who doesn't love these?   And my mind just went blank on the name though.    Similar to Spanakopita, little bundles of spinach wrapped in Phyllo dough.  I managed to get one before they were all gone. 
 And one of these days Kathy will remember to give me the recipe for this Chicken dish.   She calls it Cuban Chicken and the crust is actually corn and eggs you pour over the filling and then you bake it.  It's also got olives and other good stuff inside. 
 Really awesome chili, and it was served correctly with some onions on the side to garnish it with.  Gotta have those onions.
 I love Red Cabbage, the danish style that is, but this one, well, it was really yummy and I know who brought it so I can get the recipe.  She'd spiced it with some cloves, star anise, cinnamon and other spices.   Very nice.

 Chile Relleno Casserole.  I love it when Robin makes and brings this.  It's very good, and usually disappears rapidly.  
 Ham, and not just baked Ham, but this time Quinn put some orange marmalade on it, and wow was it good.  (I snuck back and had a second slice when no one was looking, don't tell anyone, OK?)
 Something new, Sweet Potato Fritters, and they were so good.   I'm going to be begging for this recipe, they were served with a lime dipping sauce, but honestly, they were so good on their own, they really didn't need the sauce, but it did elevate it a little.
 Lime sauce for the fritters.

Meatballs, I love meatballs.  These were coated in a nice BBQ sauce and I noticed people were eating them.   (one person told me they put the meatballs in the Potato Cheese soup and ate them like that, and it was good).

And last, but not least the Kringle.   I'll be sharing the recipe in the next few days, but I noticed it disappeared rapidly as well.    I do love me a good Kringle, in fact I usually have one in the freezer in case of unexpected guests.  Hmmmm, I think I have an idea.   
That's the roundup of dishes that we ate this month at Boat Club.  Can't wait for next month to see what is offered.    But best of all, we get to visit with friends, catch up and just hang out.  How nice is that?
