Tapas for January 2019

It's hard to believe that January is almost done, but we had a bright spot last week.  It was Tapas Time!

I didn't host it, but a good friend did, and we enjoyed lots of great food, good company and as usual, ate way too much.

I cannot believe the incredible cooks we have in this area, they are fantastic.  

There is always great food food brought and shared. 
And as usual I didn't get a picture of a couple of the dishes, and one of them was mine.
Oh well...
This baked savory cheesecake with the crust made out of crushed wheat thins.  And to the left on the green plate, my baked brie, which is one of the dishes I missed.
I've been playing with bread lately, I'm determined to make a good baguette, but decided to make some french style bread for Tapas instead.  I do love making and eating fresh home made bread. 

A shot of some of the dishes with the covers still on.
 A southern staple, Shrimp and Grits
A Chicken and Bean Mexican style casserole
Some lovely veggies
We also had some meatballs
As well as a Chicken Pot Pie
A selection of poppers and cheeese sticks.
Some lovely spicy wings
Mini quiches
Marinated vegetables in a great dressing
A pretty and tasty fruit plate
Baked shells. (and you know me and pasta, I was in heaven)
Doubly in heaven, cause there was Garfield's favorite, Lasagna
An overview of the table with all the food.
We also had dessert, this was a cherry dish
There was even a King Cake, cause Mardi Gras is around the corner after all.
There was also another dessert but I didn't get a shot of it, sigh.

And there it is, the reason I'm hiding from my scale this week. 

Just kidding, but honestly, if you come to one of our gatherings and go home hungry, you've got a problem and I can't help you with it.  

Again, thanks to my friends Kathy and Skip for hosting this month.
