Dinner Club: Tapas


Monthly Feature

Each month…six friends get together for great food and good times! Check out the recipes and rundown.

The Shalins hosted and made the appetizers and entree. The Shooks brought over tasty beverages, and the Jaegers were in charge of dessert. The theme was Tapas.  Here’s how it broke down:

Tapas

Chick Peas and Spinach Tapas, Grilled Serrano Ham and Manchego Cheese Crostini, Pan Roasted Shrimp with Toasted Garlic, Potatoes with Capers and Dill (note–all recipes are found in link below)

It was a lot of fun taking our first stab at tapas.  I think they turned out as well as can be expected.  The sangria and dessert were hits.  Because of a hectic December for all, we’re doing a pot-luck dinner at the Shooks.
