cheap, easy and interesting snacks

kittychow | Aug 30, 2007 09:46 AM

I'm having 1/2 dozen friends up to my family lake house for the long weekend. We've got major meals pretty well covered. Fortunately I have very thoughtful hounds for friends. I'd like to have stuff to snack on around. I tend to get bogged down in high quality easy stuff, like very good cheese plates, or things that take some effort to prepare so I'm a little challenged by the prospect of providing easy snacks. Looking for cheap, easy, and INTERESTING.

I'm keeping it simple one night with a greek inspired dinner. I'll have store bought hummus, dolmades, and olives for that so those easy snacks are out. I've consider homemade guacamole and salsa but have run out of ideas beyond that.

I also don't have loads of time to prepare in advance. Tonight I'll be making the trek late so I've pretty much only got the morning before they all arrive.

Thanks in advance!
