Frugal Birthday Party Food Ideas
Tomorrow is my son’s birthday party. While I have figured out the cupcakes, goodie bags and entertainment, I needed help in the grown up food department. The party is to be held after lunch but I wanted to have a small appetizer people could enjoy while there. But I didn’t want it to bee too much work or too expensive. I stopped by Costco looking for a quick alternative but what they had available was more money than I wanted to spend.
So I turned to Twitter for advice. I asked my followers for ideas on a cold appetizer I could make that could be enjoyed by adults and children at the same time. Here are some of the helpful ideas I received in response:
All of the ideas are great, simple and budget friendly. but ultimately I decided to go with the roll-ups. Originally I wanted to make turkey roll up, but couldn’t find a recipe I liked. The recipe shared by Amy looks so good and easy to make. It looks perfect to eat at room temperature and can make even a day ahead. These were all things I really needed in this case. I just bought all of the ingredients and it was a total of $3.97, since I had salsa and sour cream in my pantry.
