Party Foods that Make the Party
In college a party can start up pretty easily. All it really takes is more than one person and before you know it, it’s party time.
If you and your roommates want to become the most popular group in the complex, consider throwing a party for your neighbors. A housewarming or “block” party can be the perfect way to break the ice in your new apartment community.
Make the party special by serving a few easy to make party foods:
Chips and Dip. Everyone loves chips and dip. Make it special by putting the chips in a bowl sporting your schools colors. Your guests will be amazed. If you want to really blow them away, put the dip in a separate bowl with a spoon and offer snack plates.
Wienies in Barbeque Sauce. You’ve had them at parties your parents have hosted, and you probably never knew that making wienies in barbeque sauce is as easy as buying the already cooked cocktail wienies in a package and pouring a jar of barbeque sauce over them. Heat in a sauce pan on the stove or in the microwave, and serve with toothpicks. Yum!
Sub Sandwiches. You don’t have to go to the sandwich shop for great subs. Buy a couple of loaves of French bread from the bakery department of your favorite grocer. Buy a couple of packages of lunch meat or a pound of meat from the deli counter, buy some cheese slices, a tomato, pickles and other veggies. Slice the bread down the center, and make up a couple foot long subs by layering the ingredients on one half of the bread and covering them with the other. The subs can be sliced into small snack-size portions for your guests and customized with mayo, mustard and other condiments you serve along side them.
Fruit Kabobs. Pick up some skewers at the second hand store and use them to thread grapes, cut melon, strawberries, apple slices, and other fruits for fruit kabobs. Add a marshmallow or two for fun, and serve them with a side of melted chocolate. Delicious!
