Tapas for October 2017

Since it's October and time for Tapas as well.   I had to make a few Halloween themed dishes, cause, Hello Halloween?
I had to.
But luckily our guests brought lots and lots of great food as well.
They usually do, and it's always good.  
I love trying all the offerings, and visiting with people, and well, pretty much all of it. 
Take at look at the table full of great food for starters.
From the left, in front, the red pot had a Morel Mushroom and Stone Crab Risotto, then there was hot spinach dip, a fresh sliced veggie tray.  Behind the Spinach dip were some awesome meatballs, then the Spider Cake I like to make and share, alongside the Spider Eggs.   I hate to admit it, but I was too busy tasting it to get a good picture, it was way too blurry to post.
From the top, well, sorta, here are some of the other dishes that were brought and shared.
Some totally delicious wings, lovely and hot.  They left me a couple and I had them for breakfast.
 Stuffed Peppers, again, so good.
Rice Casserole, next to pasta, rice has to be my favorite dish.
There was also this awesome Chang Mai Pork Curry.   I do love curry, and this was spot on for flavor and heat.
There was some Ambrosia Salad, which was so good.  I just never know whether it's a side dish or a dessert.  It's one of those either or dishes.  But I do know I love it. 
A hot Spinach dip, again, one of those dishes I love.
I had to include this picture, I had too. As you can see, we had lots of food and people it all.
Some more wings, these were done in an Air Fryer, they were lovely and spicy as well. 
I had some fun with the table before everyone got there.  I'd made some of my Something's Seedy Crackers to go with the Spider Cake as well as a green onion spread I'd made.  I also carved up a couple of orange peppers into Jack o' Lanterns.  I did them last year as well. Nothing like repeating a great idea. 

I also had some fun with some Deviled Eggs,  I made some Tate's Hell Snake Eyes, I'll share the story and recipe in another post.
Of course we had some desserts as well.   Some Red Velvet cupcakes,
and one of Carolyn's frozen Trifles. 
 And I didn't get a shot of the bowl of M&M's. But I did eat some of them as well. 

Well so much for this month, again, lots and lots of great food, wonderful conversations and now that the kitchen's cleaned up, the wineglasses washed and put away, I'm going to go and put my feet up.
