Obama Thanksgiving menu: turkey, ham, six kinds of pies


The Obama White House on Thursday released the Thanksgiving Day menu the First Family is enjoying with about 50 guests--friends, family and staff, according to Mrs. Obama's press office. Mrs. Obama's press office announced Wednesday that the menu would not be released then changed their plans on Thursday. The menu is traditional--and features six varieties of pies. President Obama has often praised the White House pies.

"The President's favorite is turkey and pumpkin pie," a statement said.

That's what I am talking about Mr. President. Keep it real in the White House.

Nobody in the world cares what he had for thanksgiving! this is the dumbest story ever in the history of thing presidents have done!


Nice to know the President likes what we like, however what is Huckleberry Pie. LOL

Bush went to Iraq and ate what the troops ate.

Hey racist rednecks, if you aren't bothered then why are you posting here ?

Bush went to Iraq and ate what the troops ate to gain redemption & salvation for a "created" war in a place that they should not have been in to begin with!

The meal is almost exactly the meal we had for turkey day, excluding the Huckleberry pie.
I am pleased to see a menu I am familiar with and look forward to enjoying in years to come tradition is Wonderful.

Wish there were more pictures of the tree and the family.The tree and decorations will be lovely as were the the decorations for the State dinner.

A Blessed Holiday to the Obamas and family. From reading the comments on sites like this and reviewing how easily it is to get access to the President, I know I will be praying for him and his family.

Racist seem to feel very comfortable and accepted on this site!

Hatred is alive and well in too many areas of the USA.

Where are all the fruits and veggies that we obese American people are supposed to be eating? What is with the 6 kinds of pies?
Another example of healthy eating? LOL
