Community Potluck for February

I've been delayed posting this, but I think I'm still a little full from the potluck the other day.   Thanks to the generosity of the St. James Bay Golf Course we have a lovely room to gather in and visit and eat and enjoy once a month. 
It is very much appreciated.
And so is the generosity of all the people who participate and bring their great food.
I, along with others, end up eating way too much, but also have fun making and bringing our dishes.  I can't resist making some of the Danish food I love, and sharing that.   And people don't mind eating it either.  

I wanted to show you some of the food, and I do mean some.  It never fails, someone comes in a little later or I get busy talking and forget to take a picture of their offering.  And I'm sorry for that. 

We had some Mac n'Cheese - I had to have some.
 I made some Frikadeller with pork and turkey
 There was this, Swiss Steak
 We had some lovely Shrimp -
Shameless plug here- check out my newest cookbook  - Simple Shrimp Recipes - I tell you how to make not only Peel n' Eats but also have a recipe for a really great cocktail sauce in there.
 If you live in the south, you've had 'greens' and sometimes, if you're lucky they're made as well as this one, cooked with lots of pork. (I would have gone back for seconds, but I was full)
 Paired with a really 'hot' and spicy corn bread, the perfect accompaniment.
 We also had this Egglant Parmigiana - love this stuff.
and these ribs
There was this dish, which was a lovely sauce on top of rice
Marinated Chicken
Twice Baked Potatoes
A nice and spicy Pasta Salad

and then there were the desserts
This cake with Lemon pudding and whipped topping
 Some luscious slices of Chocolate Cake
A Cherry Crumble
Lemon Meringue Pie
Turtle Pie
And these rather more'ish morsels - Candied Almonds.

One of the items I didn't get a picture of was the Pineapple.  So here's a picture of it from a past potluck.  I have no idea how Kathleen always finds such great pineapples, but so glad she does.

One of the things I love about these Community Potlucks is that they are truly Community Potlucks.  We have different hosts each month and they ensure that everything is set up and put away after the potluck.  
I want to thank Jennifer and Paula for hosting, their efforts were appreciated. 

Now to put on the thinking cap to figure out what to make for next month.  I'm sure I'll come up with something.

I also have to add, that if you go home hungry from one of these gatherings, that's your problem.  We always have a variety of delicious food, and some really fantastic cooks in our area.
