Tapas for October

It's been a couple of month's since our last Tapas gathering, and everyone was ready to get together and share some food, some laughter, conversation, although at the beginning of the evening much of the conversations were about the close call from Hurricane Michael. 

I didn't host it this month, my friend Jill did and I'm very appreciative of her doing so.   Her house looked so festive with all the holiday fall decorations.  

As usual, lots and lots of food was brought and shared and enjoyed.

This dip was wonderful, and I noticed a lot of munching going on. 
 One thing I've noticed over the years is that sometimes a Tapas will seem to have an unspoken theme going on. 
This month it was dips, cheeses and crackers.  This goat cheese log was so good. 
 As I said - Cheese and Crackers
 More cheeses and crackers

And the dips and spreads
 These were some fish spreads from a little place in Panacea.  They were so good.
We also had some Bacon wrapped Jalapeno Poppers
 Of course the pineapple with the Santa toothpick holder
 I love meatballs and cocktail sausages, and these were so good.   They even had some pineapple in them
 We had ham and rolls,
 and of course, mustard's and mayo and cranberry relish to top them with.

I had fun playing with my food again, I made a Forloren Hare (Danish Meatloaf) and tried to make it look like a mummy face. 
Forloren Hare Mummy
 There was some Sesame Chicken bites
 This yummy baked pasta dish.
 I swear I thought I hit the jackpot last night, there were two pasta dishes, this Mac and Cheese was presented as well.
And there were desserts...
Rice Pudding 
 Apple Crisp
 Pumpkin dip with ginger snaps
 Mini Cheesecakes
 And I threw together this cake.  I had some cake in the freezer and some leftover black frosting so I whipped up a quick Orange Curd, sliced the cakes, slapped the orange curd in between the layers, and then frosted it. 
It tasted pretty good. 
And all in all, another successful Tapas Time.  

Worth the increase on the scale this morning.  
Best of all, spending time with friends, sharing stories and visiting.
