Tapas for June 2018

Well, we had adventures yesterday but it all turned out well. 
There was a power outage, don't know the details, and in the south, when temps are upwards of 90+ degrees outside, air conditioning is a MUST.  
So when the power went out, we got the generator going, hooked up some fans, borrowed a fan from the neighbor, and welcomed our guests. 
And we actually had quite a few people come, and they were prepared to sweat it out with us.   Luckily, the power came back on, not too long after our guests arrived, and we proceeded to eat and party.   There were a couple of late comers who'd had to find a place with power so they could finish making their dishes, and I totally did not get pictures of those.  There was also a fruit salad which got missed as well.

Here's the dishes,
I thought I would start with the appetizers first.
Artichoke Dips, and I got a picture, (blurry) before it disappeared.
 Some Fish Dip and Crackers
I made some Rye Bread and served it with some Mackerel in Tomato Sauce with Mayo as well as an Herbed Pork Roast with dipping sauce.
and a Goat Cheese Brie with crackers
as well as my Mushroom Pate, (recipe is in my cookbook Nibbles and Bites due out the beginning of July.)

Curry, OMG, it was so good.
Pasta Salad, you notice the closeup? So good.
 There were also these Eggplants,  I love Eggplants

and this Spicy Watermelon, very refreshing, it was.

as well as Dessert.  Life just isn't complete without dessert.    
And in no particular order. 
 I made some Jelly Rolls,
 There was a Key Lime Pie which disappeared FAST
 Some Red Velvet Cupcakes
 A gorgeous Fruit Salad, which I had to keep sampling...
 Some quick breads
 Banana Pudding,

There was also some Pineapple but I didn't get a picture 
and some cookies.
I have to say, if you go home hungry from here, it's your problem, there's always great food and the company's pretty good as well.
