President Obama and his anti-obesity crusading wife Michelle role-modeled a Thanksgiving feast for the nation. The great Andrew Malcolm of the Los Angeles Times: presents the menu:
Too many appetizers to bother listing.
Kick-off the main event with:
And then some Ham
And a choice of :
Cornbread Stuffing or
Or WTH have both.
Then some Greens naturally.
And, of course, Sweet Potatoes.
And it would be anti-American not to have Mashed Potatoes.
And don't forget the Green Bean Casserole.
Oh, and a mountain of Macaroni and Cheese too.
And, to be polite, unlimited Dinner Rolls.
Now the good parts:
Since First Lady Michelle Obama has OKd pies for ordinary Americans to consume this day and since, let's be honest, she's not doing the baking and neither is her Mom and he's sure not doing the dishes, order up a slab of all six pies (6, as in VI):
Apple Pie (Michigan's a battleground state, you know) and
Pumpkin Pie (it's patriotic) and
Banana Cream Pie to cleanse the palate for
Cherry Pie and
Huckleberry Pie and
The Main Man's Fave: Sweet Potato Pie.
Another do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do moment from the Obamas.
