Spice Up Your Party
The 1970’s aren’t particularly known for their advancements in food cuisine, but there are still a lot of totally awesome possibilities for party food, especially considering that cocktails and appetizers are often served at a high school reunion. Offer guests meatballs served in a crock-pot, potato skins, Doritos, or sandwiches cut into fun shapes. Pay homage to the “mixed tape” by serving one of these mixable dessert options: trifle (a dessert consisting of layers of cake, pudding, fruit, whipping cream) -OR- frozen yogurt or ice cream served with a selection of various toppings.
