New Year Party Food – Aren’t You Eggcited?

Well now, we all know that throwing a party can be expensive.  We can think two ways – throw the most expensive party on the block (and be expected to do it every year the same way), or do it up cheap so someone else will have that mess to clean up.

We’re doing it cheap!

Since your guests will be drinking their BYOB (What? Yes, part of throwing a cheap party is making them bring their own booze), they won’t be that hungry.  This is good, because these recipes are designed for people who just aren’t that hungry.

First, your 42 cent meal:

42-cent-egg-lunch-vintage-ad-recipe-jbcurio-flickrWhip up some egg whites, spread them on buttered bread. Crack an egg in them and bake.  One loaf of bread and a couple dozen eggs…that’s a party under $5, if you shop at WalMart.

Next:  cambelled eggsThat’s right, Campbelled Eggs!  Take 8 eggs, a can of Cream of Chicken soup, a little dash of pepper, and you have a meal for four, eight if you serve it as an appetizer.

So there you have it – an entire party for under $10, excluding decorations, which you can make by hanging yarn all over the room.  Woot!  Happy New Year, huh??

I actually think the 42 cent meal looks worth trying. Maybe I need to improve the quality of parties I go to...LOL
