The BEST Oscars Party Snacks
February 25, 2011 4 Comments
I know you are all dying to know what Snack Girl is serving at her Oscars party. Well, I promise, it will be a total blast.
Shrimp, champagne, sushi, caviar, roast beef, wild mushrooms, cream puffs, raspberries flown in from Brazil, and those cute little mini-eclairs......zzzzz......
And, then, I woke up.
No, actually, I'm not having an Oscars Party. But, I am having an "Oscars Picnic" in front of the television because I LOVE the Oscars. Those dresses, the speeches, and the warm California sun take me away from it all for a few hours.
My kids just sit there and complain about it "not being a kid's movie". We are taking a break from movies to celebrate, well, movies.
What will I serve? I like to have a combination of packaged snacks and prepared snacks so I can just enjoy the show. What I will not serve are frozen pizza snacks, seven layer dip, or buffalo chicken wings.
But, my picnic WILL be tasty.
I will have packaged hummus and pretzel sticks (for dipping). Then, I will have made some roasted broccoli to munch on.
If I get off my butt RIGHT NOW, I will make some pickled carrots because they are seriously addictive (and will keep me away from the chips my husband loves).
To add some heft to my snacks, I will make turkey sliders, which I like at room temperature. And, my dessert snack will be the kettle corn makeover that my kids love.
So, I will make most of these snacks myself and save some money. It will probably take me around an hour, and I have a lovely array of food to share while I wonder how those actresses walk in those shoes.
Do you want to come over to make it a party? I always make too much :)
Here is a list of the snacks I am serving and a few other suggestions for your Oscars party.
