Tapas for September

Another month, another Tapas and this time round I'm not the one washing the wine glasses the next morning.  
This month it's my friend Jill who's doing the heavy lifting, as it were.   She and her husband hosted Tapas last night, as a combo Tapas and housewarming.  They just moved to my neighborhood and wanted to have an open house and as it just so happens, Tapas is a great way to do so.   BTW, they have a lovely home, and it was a great evening. 
I had fun at least. 

Here's the food...
And since there's always that 'one dish', I'm going to tell you about it first.  And I'm so getting the recipe.  Even my bacon loving DH liked it.  And he's usually a purist when it comes to Bacon.
It was this, Caramelized Bacon. I snagged a piece just after I took this picture and then got a second one later on.  
Caramelized Bacon
Bacon with maple syrup and brown sugar.  So good. 
Now for the rest of the dishes.   A couple of Cheese Plates

A lovely Salmon Mousse molded Salad.  I haven't had one of these in years.  I think my mother had a copper mold like this or it could have been one of my sisters who had one.   I think I need a mold like this, it would be fun to make one of them again.

And then there were these...
In no particular order - Pulled Pork in rolls
 Mexican Soup with meatballs, similar to the Albondigas Soup I make.
 Seafood Mac and Cheese.  I didn't get another shot of it, but did taste it.  You know I did, I do love my pasta.
Corn Salsa 
And some Pineapple, you knew that was coming, didn't you.
and...a GF free  Broccoli Casserole
as well as a Potato Salad
And a Caesar Salad
Along with this Broccoli Salad
And there was even a Waldorf Salad
Some Baked Brie
As well as Deviled Eggs
 And some Potstickers
And yet more Pasta, a Rotelli with Sauce
Some Sausage Bites 

And this Casserole, which I barely got a taste of, but it had PASTA in it, as well as Bacon on top.

I did make a couple of things.  Some Stuffed Jalapeno's, since it had been a long time since I'd made some.
 And I played with some Potatoes, I'll share that recipe later on.   Kind of a cross between twice stuffed potatoes and the Loaded Potato Bowl I made recently.
 Now for the Desserts...
And Brownies

As well as some Grapes, so pretty.
And these Oatmeal bites alongside a trifle
Last but not least this Banana Bundt Cake.

I think I got it all, this time.
 I'm going to go walk an extra mile or three this week, cause I've got another potluck coming up tomorrow to attend.
Heck with it, I'll just walk an extra mile each day this week, that way I can taste everything.
