March Tapas Night

It was another wet and stormy night this month for Tapas, but people persevered and came anyway.   At one point the rain was falling at the rate of 6 inches an hour, YIKES!!!!!  But we only received just over an inch of rain, but that came in about 15 minutes or so.

Now that you've read the weather report, here's the round up of some of the great dishes that were brought.

And one thing I loved about this month, we had Thai, Polish and Indian food.   What a combination of tastes, textures and fun. 

 Chicken Satay with a killer Peanut Sauce, I could have just eaten the sauce by itself.   I am going to get the recipe and try my hand at it.

Sausage and Sauerkraut.   A great Polish dish.   And to think I used to avoid Sauerkraut, but have really grown to enjoy it over the couple of years.  Probably because people who know how to cook with it have made some incredibly delicious meals with it.

I made some Carrot Pakoras and they were very well received.

There was also this wonderful Salad, with all kinds of good stuff inside.

As well as a Bean Salad, yum.   I do love a good bean salad.

 Wonderful Green Beans, and look at the Kumquat slices on top, aren't they cute?

 Guacamole and Pita Chips...   again, people make and bring the most wonderful tasting food.  
Sliced meat and some wonderful sliced Roast Pork.   Very good and it disappeared in short order.

I also made a Carmelized Onion and Mushroom spread and served it with Goat Cheese.   I'll tell you about it in another post.

And then there were the desserts.   From Cupcakes, to Cake to Brownies and Eclairs.  Chocolate was the flavour of the month here.   And I neglected to get a picture of the eclairs, but I have one I took from Boat Club, so I'll just reuse it here.  You didn't notice, did you?

So there you have it, a round up of deliciousness, a cornucopia of flavours, all right,  enough adjectives, sigh.    We had fun, as usual, and even though the rain kept a few people from the soiree' a good time was had by all.
