We've reached the point where in girls cooking night, a lot of us are starting to bring 2 dishes -- we thought this would be fine for Tapas Night, but well, no one really made tapas-sized small plate portions... Still even with all this food, we managed to devour most of it!
Melissa, as host, actually felt compelled to make 3 dishes: a spicy potato and chorizo; a salad with apples, cheese, and walnuts; and a classic Andalusian gazpacho with wonderful homemade croutons.
Brownie made a baked mushroom, potato, onion dish. Debbie brought a green salad dressed with peaches and a tasty dressing, and sauteed spinach with pine nuts.
Kim supplied us with virgin and regular sangria, and two kinds of marinated olives.
I brought a crab and roasted pepper dip, and for dessert, toasted bread with chocolate drizzled with olive oil and sea salt.
And Marian brought the other dessert, a reprise of her delicious flan. She even went out and bought ramekins especially for the occasion!
