For the Gourmet

* 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.

    Chivalry and gourmet cooking skills are alive and well! For very special events, you might want to consider one more little touch: Make some of the sammiches with genuine Spam. Ruby Ann Boxcar, of Down Home Trailer Park Cookbook fame, warns that one must never, ever substitute ham for Spam.Move over, Enjoy your repasts!

    The epitome of gracious hosting a beer party is to serve those long pretzels with some form or flavor of dipping sauce. Now, for beer and pretzels I recommend a dipping sauce such as mustard. If by chance you are hosting a Green Bay Packers party you can make a swirl dipping sauce using wasabi and mustard…the possibilities are endless as long as you have enough beer…….
