Free Lunch and Housewarming Party

January 15th, 2015 at 07:36 am

There is such a thing as a free lunch! We're being treated today for our work on the re-appraisal. SO actually packed me lunch this morning, but my pb&j with frozen bananas will have to wait until tomorrow.

This Saturday, we are throwing an impromptu housewarming party. It will probably be about 10 people. Any suggestions on frugal, delicious servings? SO mentioned a couple of his friends will probably bring something along, but I feel like we should have some sort of entree/food available as his friends always feed us full meals when they have us over.

    I like Swedish meatballs!

    One bottle of Chili Sauce, one bag of frozen meatballs, and half a jar of grape jelly. Crockpot on high for 1 hour, and then low for 2 hours. So good!

    You can eat them on toothpicks, or in my house we eat them on hoagies with cheese.

    How about chili? You can make a big pot. Serve with bowls of sour cream, grated cheese, chopped green onions, and cilantro so people can customize their own. Add a basket of corn muffins and you're set!

    Have you ever heard of haystacks? They're a great way to feed a crowd cheaply.

    Frito lays (or generic), beans, shredded cheese, lettuce, diced tomatoes, onions, sour cream, etc. Everyone makes their own haystack so it has just what they like and nothing else. It's an SDA potluck or Sabbath lunch standby. Smile

    For 10, Lasagna is cheap & easy + bagged coleslaw adding drained, crushed pineapple. You can make Lasagna in the crock pot to keep it hot to the last serving. I add a bit more liquid to the traditional sauce as long cooking dries it out a bit.

    2nd choice is oven baked Mac 'n cheese with buttered crumb topping.
