Last weekend I decided (after being inspired by a Seattle Weekly, Voracious "Food Porn" slide show featuring tater tot casserole) to do a "White Trash" dinner night. I made good ol' tater tot casserole (picture above), served with a VERY classy accompaniments: cheez-its in a plastic bowl, paired with Miller Lite and Hostess cupcakes and oreos for a decadent finish. I have to be honest, the dinner was quite yummy and it was nice to take a break from all the fru-fru, pretentious, yuppie food that I normally make; we totally had fun!
I was a little afraid that Matt wouldn't like my tater tot casserole, but he responded with, "What's there not to like?!? It's little kid food." He's right too, all ingredients are fairly kid friendly: meat (ground beef or turkey), green beans, seasonings, tater tots and cheese a plenty. Very kid accepted, generally not Mom approved though.
Anyway, I just thought I would share a few pictures from our fun themed dinner night. Enjoy!
