Quick, easy, cheap sides?

Dd's birthday party's Saturday. I need another side of some sort. I'm making sloppy Joe's, mac salad & doing a vegi tray. But, I feel like I need something else.

Anyone have any ideas that are relatively cheap, easy & can be made either the night before or quickly the morning of? (We've got soccer from 8:30-1, her party's at 3.. I'm already going to be running like a madwoman.. lol)

Any ideas? Thanks ladies!!!

Fruit salad! Easy,fast and relatively cheap. Potato salad on top of mac salad isn't uncalled for and can be prepared the day before. If you can get your hands on hummus powder it can very easily be prepared (it literally takes a minute) the day before and served with pita bread and it goes very well with a veggie tray. You could also do something like rice pudding, which gets better with age and is inexpensive to make. Is any of this what you're looking for?

Lol, my "crowd" isn't exactly a hummus kind of crowd (I think it's amazing.. but I got out of redneckville USA for a while in college, so my tastes are a little more refined, lol) But your other suggestions (fruit & pudding) gave me an awesome idea. Watergate salad (pistachio pudding mix, crushed pineapple, walnuts, mini marshmallows & coolwhip) really easy, has to be made the night before AND I have most of the ingredients here already, hello cheap! Thank you so much!
