Yuri's Night nibbles - ideas?
I'm hosting a "Yuri's Night" party this Saturday, celebrating 50 years of humans in space. I thought it would be easy to think of space-themed nibbles, but I'm stumped! Any ideas?
You would have to have "Tang" as a major ingredient. I wonder if they still make the satellite jaw breakers they had when I was a kid. ahh.. space dots freeze dried ice cream. And of course, you could have normal stuff and just give it a cutesy name like "Lost in Space" popcorn balls shaped like a robot. "Danger, Will Robinson"!
