White Trash Dinner

19990711bIn theory, this was a “white trash dinner”, or “trailer trash dinner”. The menu was presented with the first side face-up, and I believe I didn’t tell people that the backside had the “translation” to what they were actually being served. I left that for them to discover as the evening went on. Whether anyone did, or whether I finally told them at the end of the night to flip the menu over, I don’t recall. We had fun.
