White Trash Party: Food

Everyone needs food at parties.  But when you're having a white trash party, only certain foods will do.

First, we needed some appetizers.  Slim Jims, jarred cheese dip and pork rinds did the trick.  Leaving the dips in the jars and them displayed seemed like the trashy thing to do.  

We also had a veggie platter (too healthy to picture) and homemade jalapeño poppers (Made from THIS RECIPE HERE - they are delicious!)

For desserts - we had the signature jello mold. It looked beautiful, but I was too scared to try it.  I scored a really hideous looking "BBQ Cake" at BJ's.  I wanted to see if the baker would write "White Trash" on top of it but the husband said that would have been too tacky.  

We also had a not-so-trashy Key Lime Pie and "Dirty Worms" - which was pretty much chocolate pudding with mushed up oreos and gummy worms.

For the main course, we stuck to hamburgers, hot dogs and barbecued chicken thighs.  We also had mayo-filled sides like Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad and a Cucumber Salad which was delicious.  

I think the key is to yes, have some trashy food - but you actually want people to eat and enjoy it so you can't go "too trashy".
