What's Some Good Party Food?!

Question: What's Some Good Party Food?
I am having a band over to my house and I am trying to determine what to serve. I am thinking about catering, but I don't know how much that runs. How much is it usually? What is some good food for a party? I have no idea what to serve.There will be approximately 12 people at the party (small i know haha). The ages of the people at the party range from 15-23 just so you know : )

Hot dogs.


Catering is expensive.
But you can make platters of different sorts of cold cuts and buns
Platters of cut up cheese & crackers
Platter of fruits & pastries
also order a party size pizza and cut into very small pieces.
Make up a salad or potato salad and have some cookies or pastries with lots of munchies.

Good Luck

Don't spend the money on catering just for 12 people...you can easily serve up a nice buffet of easy foods yourself. In fact, you can make your own pizzas using this "no fail pizza crust recipe">> one that you can cook with right away>>>
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 "egg size" butter
1 pkg. yeast (21/4 tsp)

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Mix rest of ingredients. Knead on lightly-floured surface--about 2 min.
Press out in a pizza pan...or whatever pan you're using
Put sauce and pizza toppings on...Bake 35 minutes at 350^ (til golden brown)

***Note**Can also make bread sticks with this recipe>>just brush with oil or egg white and sprinkle with garlic salt and bake 10 minutes...be careful not to overbake! Check with one to see if done.

You can also make your own wings>>http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Buffalo-Chi…

You'll want to add some dips and chips or even nachos and cheese.
Can do fruit kebabs on party picks and stick into half a melon or orange...use chunks of pineapple, grapes, maraschino cherries, cantaloupe or honeydew.

Deviled eggs always go....stuffed mushrooms also popular
Here's Garlic Bites recipe ---http://www.pillsbury.com/recipes/vampire… Just put party picks in a few with rest of picks nearby.

Then make a baked treat that's easy to serve by cutting into bars...something with chocolate and peanut butter (these taste just like Reeses)...easy to make:

Or there's mini ice cream cookie cups>>

I suggest getting a good friend and working together to help you put the food items together so it's not all on you.
