Game Night Menu

When you host a game night, you don't want to be bothered with rushing around the kitchen preparing an elaborate dinner. And your guests aren't going to want to stop playing whatever the game of the hour is to come and sit at the dining room table. That's why a heavy appetizer menu is perfect for this kind of night.

Chuck and I are hosting one this weekend for some of our favorite people and I wanted to share the menu that I put together. Different appetizers will be put out at several different times over the course of the night, and dessert is kind of pared down since by that point everyone will be all involved with Rock Band or Cranium or something else (oh, and drinking, don't forget lots of good alcohol for this!). So pick up that guitar and get ready to snack all night!
