SNACKS--- “KISS” – keep is simple (and economical).  We want the hosting duty to be manageable for everyone, therefore a simple snack to enjoy with a cup of coffee is best.  While all offerings are welcome and blessed, the "simple offering" keeps expectations balanced and ensures that participation of everyone.
