So that's where the bailout money went.

Nice I think we'll splurge tonight at my house and have Nathans Franks. No side dishes too exspensive but for desert it's Jello

Thanks for publishing the menu for PM Berlusconi. The White House is a platform to showcase the great culinary treasures of the US and an important one (no matter the idiot being honored). Can't wait to see how the Obamas entertain. I hope they have regular and superb state-visit-dinners, we have a lot of patching up to do with many, many countries around the world. Providing spectacular American cuisine and wines at these events is money well spent!!
