St. George’s Menu, revised

I’m dropping the trout, which just breaks my heart, but I am barely squeaking by with the budget and I’d like to be able to afford a better cut of meat for the roast beef. Cutting the trout meant completely rethinking the 2nd service and the necessity of splitting it into 2 platters. We are also running very short on squires to serve, so the schtick may be cancelled and the roast beef may be carved in the kitchen instead, which means there’s no need for a 1st platter for people to nosh on while their meat’s being carved at table.
