MeLissa emailed me and asked what I’d recommend for snacks to serve for a party this weekend. She said:
My husband is having a NCAA Championship party on Monday night for some of the guys from church. We’re expecting around 15 hungry men and I don’t want to break the budget trying to feed them. From the sales currently going on, what would you serve?
She said she was thinking about serving guacamole and hotdogs with grilled peppers and onions. I think that sounds great! I don’t want to send you all over town to pick up stuff for one party, but here’s where the best deals are and you can take it from there!
Avocadoes are on sale for $1 at King Soopers and Albertsons. Cilantro is 3/$1 at Albertsons… I’d buy tortilla chips at Safeway (you can get 5 bags of Tostitoes for $1.99 each). If you want some salsa to go with it, you could pick up some of the Tostitoes salsa at Safeway, too. You could also buy a whole chicken at Safeway and cook and shred it to make nachoes. (Cheese isn’t really a good deal anywhere this week, maybe you could use some from your stockpile.)
Hotdogs are a great option – they’re on sale for 99 ¢ this weekend at King Soopers (even cheaper with a coupon) and buns are 50 ¢! You can afford to feed guys a lot of hotdogs at that price.
You could also do cheese and crackers. Wheat Thins and Triscuit crackers are on sale for good prices this weekend at King Soopers and Albertsons. Finally, if you really want to spoil the guys, buy them some Breyer’s ice cream from Albertsons! If you’ve got any questions about these deals, please see the weekly deals posts first and if you’ve still got questions, ask away!
I have to add that I’m simply not able to plan menus for everyone in Colorado Springs. ;) But, if you have a question about what to serve based on what’s on sale, feel free to email me at email@example.com and I’ll see if I can work it in! I can’t make any promises, though.
Any other disappointed-but-not-surprised Jayhawk fans in Colorado Springs? Maybe we’ll do better next year…
