Planning to have a game night with your friends at one of your apartments in Lake Oswego? While the right game choice is vital, picking the right snacks to keep everyone satisfied and happy while they play is just as important, too. At the same time, you shouldn’t have to slave over a stove all day either. Consider these easy snack ideas, and you’ll be the hero at the next game night!
Simple Snack Ideas for Game Night at Your Lake Oswego Apartment
Slow Cooker Chili Cheese Dip – Chunk a block of Velveeta cheese; add a can of chili (without beans) and a can of diced mild jalapenos. Cook on low heat for 3 to 4 hours and stir every hour or so. If the dip seems too thick, you can add a little milk to thin it out. Serve with sour cream and extra sliced jalapenos on the side, and you’ll have a warm, delicious chili cheese dip perfect for eating with tortilla chips or as a filling for flour tortillas.
Easy Flatbreads – Most bakery departments offer a wide variety of flatbread and naan bread (Flat Out is one national brand). Top with your choice of marinara, barbeque sauce, cheese, veggies and diced deli meat, and bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes for a fast, easy flatbread snack that will look impressive and take only minutes to prepare. This is a snack but feels hearty enough to serve as a meal – especially when served with some fruit (see below).
Fruit Skewers – Grab some pre-cut fruit and grapes from the produce department and skewer them. Serve with a premade fruit dip for an easy-to-eat, mess-free fruit snack. With all the other less-than-healthy snacks, it may make you feel good to eat something with some nutrition in it to keep you going with the gaming all night long.
Game night and every other night is even better when you have the perfect place to call home. Check out our currently available apartments in Lake Oswego at Kruseway Commons and schedule a walkthrough.
