Tapas Night for August

I know you've been waiting, you just can't wait to see what great dishes were brought and shared last night at Tapas.

I know I was busy yesterday.  I baked a couple loaves of No Knead bread, one white and one rye,  put together some Naan, made Palak Paneer and then set it all up.   I also put together a Danish Potato Salad and made sure I had my 1/2 hour nap before the guests came.  

 Danish Potato Salad, and I'll be sharing the recipe a little later on.
 I believe this was a Paella, at any rate, it was good.
 Buried under here was the Pasta, giggle.  And it was so good.
 This was a fresh wonderful watermelon and Feta Salad.  YUM
 Danish Salad in foreground, Palak Paneer in back ground and Blood Mary Tomatoes to the left. 
 From the top, left corner.   Dr. Spock eggs, Green Eggs and Ham, fun.  Palak Paneer, Naan, Potato Salad and Bloody Mary Tomatoes.
 And a good shot of the Bloody Mary Tomatoes.  These were really intriguing, and good.
 Over view of the table.
 Apple Salad, and I love the serving dish.
 I got to the tail end of this salad, but it was very tasty.
 Home baked Mac and Cheese, and I noticed it was very popular, and it tasted good too.  Well, gee, you know me and Pasta. 
 Another over view of the table   Think anyone went home hungry?

For some reason my photo program won't let me turn the picture around, but cheese and grapes are always popular. 
Just turn your head a little. 
 I'm so irritated with myself.  This is kind of blurry, but I'm including it anyway.  These were so good.  At first glance I thought they were Scotch Eggs, but then I looked a little closer and then I had to taste one.  OMG, they were so good.
Candied Bacon and Egg Cookies.
 Bruschetta,  and these were very tasty as well.
 More Bruschetta.  
 Pie and some of those bacon and egg cookies to the side.
 Lemon Bars
 Key Lime Pie
 I put out some cold cuts and the bread I baked.
 Black Bean fritters, with a mayonnaise dipping sauce.  Very tasty.
 Fruit Salad, and it looked so pretty.
 A fruit pie and the Key Lime in the background.
 Fish dips, one was Grouper and the other Crab I believe.
 Pasta Salad and it was very good.
And there was another Key Lime Pie brought but I didn't get a shot of it.   I swear, there's always one.   Gotta keep the streak going I guess...

There you have it, another Tapas Night done.   And since there was some Palak Paneer left, I'll be having that for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a couple of days.   But it's healthy and good for you, right?   Good thing I like it.
