* Beer ‘n pretzels. Get a big ole bag of pretzels & some beer. If you have time, put the beer in the ‘frig awhile. When your guests arrive, you say to them:
“Y’all c’mon in. Y’all wanna beer? Want some pretzels?”
Later on, you might ask:
“Y’all wannanother beer? Want s’more pretzels?”
Folks recognize good taste in a host or hostess that knows how to treat people.
* Beer ‘n sammiches. Get a big ole platter of sammiches & some beer (Follow recipe above substituting sammiches for pretzels). This is a great recipe when your guests were kinda expecting a meal.
* Add tater chips for that gourmet touch. But keep in mind, tater chips can be expensive. If you need to watch your budget, you probably shouldn’t throw lavish parties like this.
