Boat Club for May

It turned out to be an Italian kind of night at Boat Club this month.  Well, two of us brought Italian themed dishes and then there were the salads and dips and other great food, but the theme was Italian.

I made some Stromboli, which was fun cause I'd never, ever had it before and wanted to use up the rest of the pizza dough I had in the fridge that was leftover from the Pizza I made on Saturday.   Plus of course I had a bunch of toppings that were left over as well.   I'll post about my Stromboli adventures later on this week.

Without further ado, and absolutely no drum rolls, here are the dishes and foods that were brought.

Potato Salad, I do love Potato Salad.  Marilyn made the salad as well as the skillet cake.
Lasagna, wonderful and saucy.  It was good, and it all disappeared as well.   
Stromboli, and there wasn't a slice left at the end of the night.

Salad, brought by Harriet, and there was so much good stuff on there that you didn't need any dressing.

Crackers and see that little white pot to the right?  It had some awesome Spinach Dip in it. 

Broccoli Cheese dip made by Brenda, she always brings great stuff. 

And this cabbage salad.   I believe Doug made, and one of these days I'll try to remember to ask him for the recipe.   It was good

 These pickles were fun, heavy on the cloves, but I did eat a couple cause they were tasty.   I think they would go great on a turkey sandwich with some leftover dressing and cranberry sauce.   Just sayin...
 Now this was fun.   Karen and Mark brougth this, from a trip they just came back from.  Beer made from Grits.  How southern can you get?   And it was tasty too. 
 Quinn usually makes the meat dish, but Cheryl Ann did it this time and they were so good.  Of course wings are my favorite part of the chicken anyway.   20 minutes at 375 deg. then turn them over and cook an additional 20 minutes and sprinkle with Chicken Seasoning salt from Dollar General.   Had to share the recipe.  Besides which, it's now in print so I don't have to try and remember how to do it.   She also had BBQ sauce and Hot Sauce to put on if you wanted.  I thought the three or four wings I had were just fine without the sauce. 
Pat makes the most awesome dressing for this salad and I want the recipe for it.  She has said she will get it to me, sometime.    It was good as usual. 

And now for the desserts:

Cake, can never go wrong with this.
Marilyn brought one of her famous skillet cakes, she actually bakes them in an electric skillet.    I think I've got one or two recipes for them so far, just still trying to hunt down the magic skillet so I can try and make them myself.  
 Last and not least, Coconut Cake.   Yummy.
I do love Coconut Cake, and Coconut cream pie and toasted coconut and .....

Sorry got carried away there.

That's the wrap up for the dishes this month, as you can see we had a lot of good food, and best of all we got together with friends and had a great time.
