  • The perfect snacks are finger foods. Go to BJs or Sams (whatever wholesale store you have nearby) and buy frozen snacks. You can get chicken fingers, mozz sticks, bagel bites, chips and dip, cheese and crackers, pretzels. Set up a few tray tables around the table to avoid a mess on your poker table. You get it. Its easy and not messy. If your really worried about a mess then skip the chips and dip! Have fun!!
    ps If you want a cute little desert you can get those little ladyfinger dish things(not sure what there called) and simply add whipped cream and strawberries!

  • chex mix. u can throw it when someone wins a big pot and its easy to clean up if its spilled. Cheese crackers. Anything you would eat for the Superbowl would be great.

    3/4 cup oil
    1 tsp. cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp lemon pepper
    1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • Herbed Oyster Crackers
    1 pkg (dry) Original Hidden Valley salad dressing mix
    1 tsp dill weed
    1tsp garlic salt
    1 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
    1 c vegetable oil
    2 (12 oz) pkg oyster crackers

    Mix together dry ingredients; add oil slowly and mix well. Set aside. Empty crackers into a large bowl and pour 1/2 of the oil/spice mixture over them, stirring to coat. Let set about 15 min., then stir the remainder of the oil mixture over the crackers; toss and let set for another 15 min. Spread crackers on a paper towel lined cookie sheet and cover with paper towels. Let set overnight to absorb the oil and dry out. Store in Ziploc Bags. Yield 3 pints.
