Yesterday I shared the first of three posts on our Superbowl entertaining. I like to alternate between a hot and cold dish every two hours. The reason being, many of our guests are consuming alcoholic beverages so it is our responsibility as hosts to ensure ample food is available to counteract the effects. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and other non-alcoholic beverages are always available as well.
Nachos are always a hit even at our monthly games night. I set up the top shelf of the cart as a nacho station as pictured. The nacho chips, cheese in the themed slow cooker and nacho trays were purchased at Sam's Club. I used the squatty 250 ml designer mason jars as serving bowls for home canned salsa, home canned jalapeño peppers and sour cream.
cookbook shelf, drink tables, medicine cabinet and custom trimming in the main bathroom. Just wait until you see the custom work he is doing in the kitchen! I added the mini Breton and Snackers crackers along with dill pickles and garlic dill pickles. Surprisingly, dill pickles are a huge hit as well even at our monthly games night.
The second shelf was set up with small paper plates and bowls along with a banana cake another wife brought. She also brought snickerdoodles! It is common for one or more of the wives to come out to the monthly and special events especially for the dinner.
I use paper plates, bowls and serviettes for the large, special events although I have used regular dinnerware. This is a practical measure when entertaining for larger groups. I don't use disposable serving dishes for either special or monthly events nor do I use disposable plates or bowls at the monthly games night. I very rarely use disposable cutlery either. I do however use the disposable nacho tray. For some reason, everyone loves these trays! They are not expensive either. The Bakers & Chefs 125 count package I buy is $4.98 at Sam's Club which is less expensive than paper plates.
