Community Potluck for November 2018

I meant to get this up yesterday, but took the day to run into the big city. 

We met at a new venue this month, St. James Bay Golf Course allowed us to use their Fountain Room, and we'll probably be meeting there every month until they kick us out. 

The place we used to have it at, is no more, thanks to Hurricane Michael.  It basically took out the entire building as well as causing damage and havoc throughout our community. 

We appreciate being able to have our Community Potluck at the St. James Bay Golf Course.  The room was lovely, and as usual,  lots of great food was brought, and lots of conversations and story swapping were done. 

Without further ado or any other drum rolls or ?

It's funny how some months seem to get a theme, without any prompting from anyone.   This month there was a definite Pasta theme, which made my little heart go pitter patter.   I love pasta. 
I had to do it, here are all the pasta dishes.
And you know I sampled every single one of them.
Bowtie Pasta with Sausage

 Macaroni Salad
 Chicken with Noodles
Orecchiette or Little Ears Baked Pasta
 Mac and Cheese
There was lots more brought and enjoyed.
We not only had some lovely Mashed Potatoes 
 But also some roasted Rosemary Potatoes
This totally awesome dish with Chicken and Sausage and Rice
 I made a Jambalaya with Sausage, Chicken and Ham
 There were some Salmon Patties (I didn't get to taste them, but was told they were good.
 Some Pork Loin Sliders, and being a Dane, I'm a pork fan, so I was happy.
 There was a Pumpkin Soup, which was spicy and delightful
 And you were to top it with Salsa, Sour Cream and tortilla chips
 Some Mushrooms, I could have dipped some of the Foccacia in the juice.

and a Spicy Kale dish
 along with some Brussels Sprouts.   Funny that, I never used to like them, but my taste buds must have matured somewhere along the way, cause I really like them now.
 A Cheese and Cracker tray.  And if you look up in the left hand corner, I also made and brought some Tiramisu Cupcakes and didn't get a picture of them. 
I also did not get a picture of another latecomer, some bacon wrapped sausages.  

and then there were the desserts.
You have to have dessert. 
You do. 
Sweet Potato with a crunchy sweet topping
 Santa and his Pineapple. 
 A baked Apple Compote
 Pumpkin Pie
 and some Turtle Pie
And I missed getting a picture of a fruit cobbler as well. 

I got busy chatting with friends, trading Hurricane Michael stories and commiserating with those who had damage or lost stuff.  I was one of them, but, you have to go on.
