Tapas Night for July

I'm tired this morning, but it is worth it.   We had another great turnout last night for Tapas, lots and lots and lots of great food, wonderful company, lots of laughs and conversations.  
All in all, another great night.

Even though it's a bit of work for me, I do enjoy having these parties.  

And when I say work, I mean the housework part, cause the cooking part is just plain fun. 

That being said, here's the round up of all the food that was brought.
At least I think it was all, I do get busy visiting and talking and sometimes I fall short in the picture taking department.  And if I missed your dish, I'm sorry.  You'll just have to come again and bring something fun.

Potato Salad, and it looked good. 
 Watermelon, locally grown and it was tasty.

Nibbles and look at that bowl.  I do love a pretty serving dish.

  Pasta salad and again, look at that cute bowl. 

Coleslaw and at the risk of repeating myself, wow, take a look at that bowl.

 Taquitos and Salsa.  And the salsa was served in another pretty bowl. 
 There was a name for this, but I can't remember it now.  However, this was a hollowed out bread stuffed with a cheese filling.   So pretty and tasty.
 Trust the vegetarians to come up with the tasty veggie dishes.  This was a superb veggie casserole.  By the time I got around to sampling it, there was only a tiny spoonful left.
 Eggplant Parmesan, and again, by the time I got to it, it was gone. But it looked good.  And judging from the scraped clean dish, it was also tasty.
 I'm not too sure what to call these, but they were good.  A hamburger/taco filling in a pastry shell
 Veggies and dip, always good. 
 Crab Cakes.  Nuf said, they were yummy.
 Look at this platter.   OMG, fresh figs, an incredible coconut sauce and chicken legs.   I could have licked the platter.  (I did score some of the leftover sauce, I'm having some over the leftover pork from last night.)
 Wings.  Always a winner.   And they did disappear, fast. 
 Quiche cups.   I managed to snag one.   I do love me some quiche. 
Pot Roast with Veggies.  Really good.  
  And I made an Herb Stuffed Pork Tenderloin.   Just like the one my sister made, but I'll tell you all about how I did it later on.
 I also made some Samosa's, the ones on the left were gluten free, and really good.  I'll tell you all about it later on.
Veggie Potstickers with Quinoa, again, I'll tell you all about them later on.   Gotta keep you reading...
 And then there were the desserts.    I didn't get a chance to taste this one, but it looked good.
 I'll just let you drool as you look at the pictures.
 I mean, there was so many desserts, it was hard to taste them all. 

I know there were some who tried. 
 You were waiting for this little guy, weren't you?  He appeared along side the pineapple again.
 I will mention one dessert by name.  This was an Eclair cake.   And the dish was scraped clean.  I didn't even get a taste, but that's OK, we used to get this one a lot when I lived elsewhere.   If you see one, get a taste, it's worth it.
 Chocolate, always a good choice, especially with all the chocoholics around here.
And last, but not least Pumpkin Cheese cake bites. 

Heaven, well, close to it. 

I hope I got pictures of everything.    But you know, if I missed something, I'm sorry.   And as I write this I realized I didn't get a shot of one dish, but I got the recipe and I'm going to make it. 
Just thought I'd add a level of suspense here. 
Hope you all had a great Saturday as well.
