Boat Club for March

 I know it's March and St. Paddy's day is coming up but I broke with tradition and made some Tonkatsu with two dipping sauces for my contribution to the incredible foods brought for Boat Club this month.

And they were incredible...

 Potato Skins and Curly fries.  The skins were so good.    There was also a horseradish dipping sauce to go with them, but I restrained myself and didn't lick the spoon, it was that good.
 Pasta Salad, and you know I had some.   There was also some Deviled Eggs beside them, but by the time I got there, they were gone.    But I know the lady who made them, so I know they were good.  Which may be why they disappeared so fast? 
Tonkatsu or Pork Cutlets, I will be sharing the recipe in the next day or so.   They seemed real popular. 

 Sausage Rolls, with homemade pastry, so very good.   Made by an lovely English lady so you know they were made correctly.
 Fried Chicken, ala Quinn.    I do love the South and all the wonderful fried chicken we can get here.   sorry, got off track there. 
 Yummy Shrimp Fried Rice with pineapple, I know the lady who made this and I'm going to strong arm the recipe out of Donna. 
 Yellow Rice which went so well with the  Lamb Stew.
Lamb Stew.  I have to tell you it was wonderful.  I don't think I've ever had this before, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.   I do miss Lamb, not one of the proteins we get a lot of down here.  

 Pigs in a Blanket.   Aren't they cute?  Little cocktail sausages, wrapped in some lovely crescent rolls.
 Stuffed Jalapenos,  which always disappears in short order at a potluck.  (I did happen to snag one or two myself). 
 Pico de Gallo.  Nice and spicy.  So good.
 I don't know the name of this, but it was tasty.  And since there was pasta in there, you know I had to taste it.
 Baked Ziti, as only Kathy can make.  One of these days I'll have to get the recipe from her.  
 Meatloaf, and by the time I got a picture of it and then went back to sample it, it was gone.  sigh.  
 Some more Deviled Eggs, and this time I got to take a picture of it.  Miss Dot used to make and bring them to the Senior Center lunches and people waited eagerly for them.  (These did get eaten fast).
Pickled Beets.  They came a little late, but I had to taste them anyway.   And they were good.

And then there were the desserts...
 Pineapple cookies with a rum glaze and coconut topping.   I did sample one or two.  And they were good. 
 Peanut Butter Oatmeal cookies with all kinds of good stuff inside.   I had to have one of them as well, but they did round out the meal nicely.
 Pineapple, and they were gone in short order.
Not much left after the hordes descended on the food, but as usual we got to sample some great food and got to catch up with some friends as well.
