Other Great Things to Serve
Super saltine snacks
Top a few saltine crackers with some peanut butter and a large marshmallow, then brown them up until the marshmallow spreads and turns golden on the edges. Crunchy, chewy and delicious!
Grilled bacon and cheese
Breathe new life into the grilled cheese sandwich by adding grilled bacon, mushrooms, mayonnaise, garlic, salt and pepper. Voila! It’s a whole new spin on a family favorite.
Who doesn’t love a hot and delicious pizza? For something a little bit different, update your pizza with unusual toppings like BBQ chicken, pineapple or feta cheese.
For the kids
Have plenty of kid-size and friendly drinks on hand, such as mini water bottles, juice boxes or pouches (apple, orange,grape, cranberry) or lemonade or iced tea. For something a bit different, mix orange juice and ginger ale together and garnish with orange slices.
For the grown-ups
In the colder months, tea, coffee and hot chocolate are real crowd pleasers. For the over-21s in your family, make sure you have a variety of alcoholic drinks on hand such as beer, wine, and mixable liquor favorites such as vodka and rum.
