Tapas Night for January

It was Tapas Night last night and as usual lots of good/great food was made, brought and devoured. 

The glasses are washed and put away, and no traces remain, other than a suspiciously clean kitchen.

I'm going to lead with a couple of the dishes I made.

It's my blog, and I can if I want to, so there.

Marinated Mushrooms and Cherry Tomatoes
 Marinated Mushrooms and Cherry tomatoes.  I use the fat free Italian Dressing for these.   So easy and tasty.
I also put out some of my Suncoast Crisps alongside some Herbed Cheese spread.
There was also a small bowl of Plantain Chips I'd made earlier in the day.

And then there was this dish.  It's a southern thang, really.  I've seen it so many places here and have to admit that the first time I tried it was I was skeptical.  Cause I really don't like canned pears.  But this is plain fun and tasty.  Canned pears with a dollop of mayonnaise, a sprinkle of cheese and topped with a cherry.  There were also some pineapple rings on here as well. 
We also had this jello salad.  I didn't get a chance to taste it, it was gone by the time I got to it.
And then there were these Taco Rollups.  Very tasty.  I've not mastered how to make them so they're not dry.  These were not dry. 
and then there were these.  Okra,, with a curry sauce and little hearts made out of red pepper.  I love stuff like this.  I think I'm turning into a southerner, cause I love Okra.   Come to think of it, I liked it before I moved to the south.
There was also this Chile Relleno Casserole, which usually disappears fast when it's brought.  I've had it before.
as well as this Pasta Casserole.   And you know me, I do love my pasta.  
Can anyone say Artichoke and spinach?  Sorry for the poor quality of the picture, but I was drooling.  TMI?
There was also this platter of Bacon Wrapped Duck, with a little Teriyaki glaze.   The Dane in me burst out and I snatched one of them right up, just after I took the picture.  I do love Duck.
There was also some Quinoa Chips with some Edamame Hummus.   I love those kinds of chips, I don't feel too guilty eating them.
There was also this quartet of fish dips.  Mullet, shrimp, crab and a mixture. 
I also made some sliders, which need to be perfected before I share the recipe here.  I thought they were kind of dry.  But when I get them right, they'll be called Herb'n Spicy Beef Sliders. 
Time for dessert now. 
I made a Banana Cream Pie.  Topped it with some Cool Whip and served it.
Banana Cream Pie
I noticed that these Cherry Topped Cupcakes disappeared fast,  and I was told they were yummy.
I did try one of these Lemon Curd Cake balls, and they were lovely.
There was also some Pumpkin Whip Dessert, served with some Ginger Snap cookies. 
And some brownies.
Sorry for the quality of pictures, I think my camera was having issues.  It had nothing to do with the operator, not being able to take decent pictures.
