The Prince and Pea
Yes, Prince Charles and Camilla are here. We've been studying the coverage for clues as to why we should care. So far, no luck. However, we did just receive the menu for today's White House luncheon for the Prince, and our interest was, er, piqued. They're serving "Composed Salad of Butter Lettuce, White Cucumbers and Golden Pea Tendrils." That's British slang for something, right?
Mmmm... golden pea tendrils...
Full menu after the jump.
