Tapas Night for August

We had a smaller than usual turnout on Saturday, but it was a hot August night so most everyone stayed inside, where the air conditioning worked great. 

And there was plenty of seating.  We did have a few diehards who ended up on the porch, but we usually do.

You're here to find out about the food though aren't you?

We did have some fun dishes.  And I showed off my Danish side.  Not only did I have candles on the table, but I actually remembered to light them as well.   I wanted to make it as 'Hygge' as possible. 

Tapas Night Table
We usually have an interesting variety of dishes that are brought and shared.   And this month was no exception. 

 Taquito's with home made Salsa
 Cold Lentil Salad
Sliced Ham
Green Curry with Pork
Pizza Bites
Cold Noodles with Peanut Sauce and braised cooked Radishes in the background
Veggies and Dip
Quinoa Salad
Broccoli Salad
Garbanzo or Chickpea Salad
I think I saw a theme there.
Deviled Eggs
and I made...
Feta dip to go with some Naan
  Chutney Wings.  I used a mixture of Mango Chutney and Cranberry Chutney
and some Shrimp Burger Bites with Limey Sauce
I also made some Spring Rolls but I'll tell you all about them in another post, with some killer Satay Sauce
There was also a Strawberry/Banana Jello Salad
as well as a Cherry Clafouti
and if anyone left hungry, that was their problem. 

Judging from the empty look of the serving plates and bowls on the table, I don't think anyone did. 
Go home hungry that is.

So that's it til next month.
