Tapas Night for April

What a night...

Not only did we have a houseful of guests, who all brought wonderful dishes to share for Tapas Night, but they all got together and signed a card wishing us a Happy Anniversary, and gave us a lovely gift as well. 

We were flabbergasted and touched and amazed and well, words fail me.   I'm getting teary just thinking about it, but as I told everyone last night, it's our pleasure and joy to host and hold Tapas Night once a month.

I think if I did more often it wouldn't be as much fun, especially when it comes time to wash all those glasses! 

Just kidding, I love the idea that the wine glasses are being used, and appreciated.   That's what they were created for.

So without further ado, here are the wonderful dishes that were brought, shared and enjoyed last night.  And a couple of dishes I made too, the how-to's I'll share at a little later date.

 Grapes and Cheese and Crackers...
 I made some Salmon Mousse which I served on some cucumber rounds...  (and the dill decorating the tops, are from my little garden).
 Brie en Croute, I had to make it again, it was so good the last time.
 Taco Salad and the Chips that accompanied them in the next picture

 Salmon Mousse, and this time I put it in some Wonton Cups I'd made.  
 Potato Salad
 Roasted Tri-Tip, I doctored up some Horseradish Mustard to go with it.  
 Pasta Dish...
 Chicken Enchilada's
 Red Beans and Rice and the Cornbread to go with it below here.
 Deviled Eggs
 Shredded Carrots and look at the lovely bowl, made by Marion Morris, one of our resident artists.
 Crudites Cheese Plate.
 Some more Deviled Eggs, only these guys had their Easter Bonnets on.   Or as someone called them last night, Boneless Chicken.

Stuffed Mushrooms
Deep fried Chicken Balls

 Cauliflower with Asiago Cheese

White Bean Dip

 Here's an overview of the table, and this isn't even all the food...

 Meatballs in BBQ sauce
Corn Fritters...

And then there were the desserts, and there were a lot of desserts too...

In no particular order.

I did try to sample as much as I could, but the dessert table was pretty popular. 
And that's it for this month, and all I can say is this, if you go home hungry from here, it's your fault.
Just kidding...
