I've always offered good food and drink to my guests, but I can't help to think how demeaning it is. I feel that a good gesture like giving them many drinks, food, etc. is the same as telling, "I'm not worth your time unless I invest in you". Where ever I go, people usually run a more tight budjet and hardly offer anything. I think they're real cheapskates or just outright inhospitable.
I don't feel good with any of this anymore. So, gimme your worst! Ideas how to handle this.
I'll tell a few off the top of my head.

Hi Pertti! What you're doing today? Great! How about you come over to our place and eat & drink anything you've brought with you?
