'Tapas Dinner' - a belated Birthday Dinner

My wife and I invited Priya and Raymond over for a belated Birthday Dinner for Priya. Her birthday was in March but we just couldnt get together earlier. We had actually planned to take food over to their house but since Michael was down with Conjunctivitis, they came over instead.


We decided to go with lots of appetisers or finger food rather than the traditional large main meal so it turned out to sort of a Tapas Style dinner! Angelina made Bruschetta, a lovely Greek Salad and her famous Cheesy Spinach Dip. I made Devilled Eggs, Garlic Mushrooms and Spaghetti with Garlic and Chilli


For Dessert, we had Angelina's very own homemade Apple Pie.



Bruschetta
Bread rubbed with Garlic and Olive Oil and lightly toasted before being topped with Chopped Tomatoes, Oregano, Basil and grated Cheddar Cheese





Greek Salad
a mixed Salad with Feta Cheese topped with Angelina's special dressing of Lemon, Olive Oil, Sherry Vinegar and Garlic.






Cheesy Spinach Dip
Cream, Spinach, Parmesan and Cheddar Cheese make up this lovely dip and served with corn chips.




Devilled Eggs
Hard Boiled Eggs with the yolk scooped out and 'devilled' with Mayonaisse, Tomato Sauce, Worcetershirse Sauce, Tabasco Sauce and Mustard. Chopped Gerkhins were sprinkled on top while a caper 'surprise' was placed in each egg.




Garlic Mushrooms
White Button and Swiss Brown Mushrooms fried in olive oil with lots and lots of garlic.
>Eat them on its own or with the pasta. Either way they taste great!




Garlic and Chilli Pasta
Lots of Garlic and Chilli Flakes fried together in Olive Oil with oregano, basil and black pepper and then seasoned with salt. Makes a nice side dish and a simple yet tasty meal on its own





Apple Pie
Great with Ice Cream... Yumm!!
