Game Night Party Recipes - The Roundup!


This was a really fun event to host, and I'm so happy I did it because it gave me so many new ideas for easy, quick and tasty recipes that are not just great for a game night, but for any night that you need to cook something delicious in a jiffy! This roundup is a great compilation of finger-foods, and as the delicacies come from many regions in the world, most of them are fusion dishes, which makes it even more worthwhile! An extra thanks to all the meat-lovers who made something vegetarian specially for this event:) I know Super Bowl is incomplete without beer and beef, but I'm sure some of the samplers in this roundup will be a great addition to any party! So, let the games begin!!

Wow, that was one heck of a roundup, and thanks so much to everyone for indulging in my veg finger-food hunt!! If I'm missing someone, please email me your entry again and I'll include it here. These are all wonderful recipes, and I'm really feeling sad that I didn't have enough time to write a personal note about each of them!! So, as a means of appreciation, I'm going to give all of you a FREE GAME as a Gift from me for your Game Nights!:)

1. Print this post in color printer (use smart web printing) for each of your guests
2. Take a stopwatch and set the timer to 1 minute (that's how long I took to finish it!!:))
3. Ask each participant to match the recipe with the picture in the grid above
4. The first one to do it under the 1 min mark wins, and you can give them a big hug, as well as a free recipe printout from "Fun and Food"!!

Hope you all have a great weekend! Get the party rolling, and may the best man win!
