Tapas Night for April

I know you've been waiting for this, I do.    As usual, a wonderful variety of foods were made, brought and enjoyed at Tapas this month.    I do love hosting this gathering, not only do we get a wonderful group of people together, there are some incredible cooks here as well, and they share their expertise, or should I say the results of their time in the kitchen with the rest of us.

So without further ado...

Had to showcase one of my recipes first, well, it is my blog, so I get to go first. 

Dosa's with Chutney Sauce.

 In the front some Pepper Beef and Brown Rice.  Jeri left a little behind and I scarfed it up for lunch today.  Very, very nice.
Who doesn't like Shrimp Scampi?   Well, not too many people.  This was yummy.

You know me, you know I love Curry and Indian food in general, this was very good served with some Basmati Rice.   Come to think of it, I should have put some on one of the Dosa's and eaten it that way, hmmmm, too late now.

I made some Greek Souvlaki Ribs and also some Black Olive Tapenade.    I'll be sharing the recipe for the ribs later on this week.

Don't know if it's the Danish in me or not, but this Chicken Liver Pate was very good.  I do love Liver.  

Taco Rollups, what's not to like about them?  I mean really?   They were pretty popular as well.

I didn't get to sample these until all the little rolls were gone, but the peppers were very tasty.   At least I got a picture of the plate before the ravening hordes descended on it.   OK, so they were guests. 

How about this for a take on Cucumber Sandwiches?   They had tuna in the middle and were really fun to eat, oh, and they tasted good as well.

Doesn't this look so pretty?  And they tasted good as well.   Gorgonzola stuffed figs with walnuts.   (Don't tell anyone but I ate two).  

These were the hit of the evening, well kinda.   Peanuts, freshly picked and roasted just that day.   I mean, how fresh can you get?    Such a treat.

 I didn't get a chance to taste these, but they looked good.
Chorizo and Goat Cheese on melba toast, really good.    I did manage to scarf one of these up. 

Waldorf Salad, it disappeared before I got back to taste it.   Just lucky I actually was able to take a picture.

 Can't forget the dessert table.   I managed to miss getting  a shot of the chocolate pie, but the rest of the desserts were a big hit.    So there you have it, a round up of deliciousness and another month gone.
