Halloween Tapas

I had fun last night. 
Well, I usually do have fun at Tapas, even when it's held at my house and I have to not only make food, but clean the house first. 
But last night it was held at a friend's house, and she's the one who gets to wash the glasses and think about all the fun she had last night.   People seemed to enjoy the party as well. Some came in costume, and some just came as themselves. 
And the food...

As usual, people outdid themselves.  We had our usual Pineapple, cause it wouldn't be a party without it.  There was Chile, an Indian Pork Stew, Stuffed Chinese Eggplant, Chicken Alfredo, Pork Chile, Potatoes, Hummus, a Cheese Ball, a Peppadew pepper spread over some cream cheese.  Plus more. 
Here's the before picture, full table of luscious eats.

and after...
Think we know how to eat well here?  
Here's a closeup of the various offerings, and not one burnt one to be found. 
Pineapple and candy...
Stuffed Chinese Eggplant, love these
Cheese Plate, always a welcome addition
Cheese Ball and Crackers
Peppadew Sauce over Cream Cheese
 Pork Chile 
Chicken Alfredo   I was given this lovely footed dish afterwards.  I think I see a Trifle or maybe a Tiramisu in my near future...
and then there was this, Potato Dish.  Did I mention lately that I love potatoes?  Well, I do.
Some Pulled Pork Sliders.  Look at that cool dish. 
 A Grape Salad.  I had a lovely helping of this. 
and some Trout Ceviche
There was also this Pork Stew which was aromatic with Garam Masala and other wonderful spices.
 There was also a huge pot of Chile, which was very tasty.
We did have a late arrival,  but I noticed inroads were made on it.  Smoked Salmon, Brie and Prosciutto wrapped Pineapple

I made a couple of dips and some other stuff, but I'll tell you about that tomorrow.  

You're just going to have to wait. 
So there.
And there were some desserts as well. 
You didn't think I'd forget about one of the major food groups? Sugar.
This was so good, a nice fluffy dessert.
And some Pumpkin Roll
And a Pumpkin Spice Cake
There was also this Strawberry dessert, which I neglected to get a close up of.
And this Pear Brown Betty
Needless to say, if you go home hungry from one of our Tapas Nights, it's your problem.
