Community Potluck October 2018

I really don't know how to start this.  We had our monthly Potluck last Monday, October 8th, and had a slightly lower than usual turnout as there was a hurricane in the forecast and some people had already left to go inland.
We've been meeting at a different boat club than we used to meet at, and it was a good place to meet.
Emphasis on was.

We had a hurricane come through our area two days later,  and the boat club building we were meeting at, is no more.  It was decimated by the storm surge.

But as I said before, we did have a few people, and they brought some great food as usual.

Here's the roundup.
This Moroccan Chicken dish made with preserved lemon, so good.
 And Meatloaf, be still my beating heart.  And it was very popular.
we also had Cheese and crackers and spread
as well as some pulled pork
and one of my guilty favorites, chicken wings
Some Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
I made some Thai style crab and shrimp stuffed mushrooms (recipe coming on Friday) as well as some crab cakes.
I also made some Garlic Twists and Garlic Crackers
There were meatballs,
And lots of desserts - these Lemon squares,
 Smore's brownies
 Icebox cake
Another Lemon Cake
This was the view from the Boat Club that night, the calm before the storm. Cliche, I know, but while we knew there was something out in the gulf, we had no way of knowing that the maybe Cat one or two Hurricane Michael, would blow up into a devastating Category 5 hurricane which would decimate so much of our Panhandle.   So many lost everything. 
and here it is now.  So sad to see this, there was so much destruction after the storm in this area.
