Tapas for August 2017

Another month, another Tapas Night. 
Not quite, we missed holding one last month due to extenuating circumstances, but made up for it this month.
It's still summer here and hot as can be, and some people were out of town or otherwise occupied but we still had some great food brought and shared.
I got to share my award winning Crab Cakes with everyone, but didn't get a picture of the finished platter. sigh
I usually miss getting a picture of at least one dish, and this time round, it was mine.
Such is life.
We had some Shrimp on Cucumber Rounds,  I loved it. 
 Hot Corn Dip to be scooped up with some chips.  Sinfully good.
Bang Bang Shrimp, another guilty pleasure.
Bacon wrapped scallops, starting to think it was a seafood kind of night.

But then...The meat showed up.
Bourbon Meatballs, which disappeared, fast.
 More meatballs, and they were tasty
 We also had some Kibbeh ( I think I spelled that right)
 I made some Frikadeller which are Danish Meatballs (the recipe can be found in my cookbook)
 We had a Quinoa salad
 And another Lentil Salad

 Someone usually brings Stuffed eggs, which is always a great idea, cause they disappear fast.

Then more seafood showed up.
Fish Dips are always a popular item here.
Along with crackers.
I had fun putting out a plate of heirloom carrots and radishes and didn't tell anyone what they were.
And since I forgot to take a picture of the platter of Crab Cakes, here's a picture I did earlier. With a generous dollop of Remoulade sauce (which is also in the cookbook  Hygge - Danish Food and Recipes)

There were some desserts as well.
Carolyn has more fun with making frozen trifles and they're always delicious
There was a Pecan Pie

I made some Caramel last week, so I put that out. 
As well as some Mini Muffins.

I've washed and put away the wine glasses, sat down for a much deserved break and am almost ready to go again.
Det var en hyggelig aften med gode venner.
In other words, a cosy evening with good friends.
