While the occasional snowflake is still falling, spring is fast approaching! And as we all emerge from hibernation, it’s easy to go over budget while catching up with friends during an evening out on the town.

“Whether you’re cheering the playoffs, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, or enjoying a game of darts, recreating an evening out while staying at home is not only easier on the wallet but also gives you the freedom to set a theme and control the menu,” says Daryl Turner, store owner at M&M Food Market in Royal Oak.

Turner shares his favourite M&M Food Market appetizers that hit the bullseye for hosting a night out – at home!
