Tapas for December 2018

I'm late, so very late, but here is the roundup of the dishes that were brought and enjoyed last month at our mostly monthly Tapas Time Night.

I wasn't the hostess, but my friend Jill graciously stepped up to the plate and hosted the gathering.  There was a Grinch Christmas gift exchange which is always fun, and hilarity ensued with gifts being stolen and exchanged later on.

I wish I could have sampled, just a bite of everything but if I had, well, let me just say it was not possible.   The food that was brought and shared was incredible as always.  
There were lots of appetizers. 
This antipasto plate
 Shrimp and sauce
Santa and his pineapple
 Baked Brie
 This lovely spicy spread
Mozzarella and tomatoes
I made some Gravlax and brought it, and the picture is way too blurry for me to really show it, but the basket behind was full of some baguette's I'd baked from scratch. 
This isn't the pretty presentation I had for Tapas, but rather so you can see how good the Gravlax looked.

I also made some Scottish Sausage Rolls and discovered that Trader Joe's Puff pastry is really made with butter.  It was good.

There was some mulled wine to go along with it all.
These lovely roasted potatoes
 Roasted Parsnips and Carrots
 Shrimp Gumbo
 Rolls to get with the sliced turkey and rare roast beef

 Sausage Balls
 Pea Salad
 Bacon Wrapped Crackers
 Rolls and sauce

 We had biscuits
 and Potato Salad
 Mac and Cheese with sausage
 A lovely Corn Casserole

Chicken Wings

And then there were the desserts...

I swear if you go home from one of our gatherings, hungry, that's your problem.  There's always a bunch of great foods brought and enjoyed. 
And the company isn't bad either.

Happy New Year and I'm hoping that 2019 is a bright and wonder filled year for all.
