“A full-blown caloric surrender and collaboration that would make the French proud…”
Despite Michelle Obama’s continually reminding the American people to adopt a healthier lifestyle by eating more nutritious and less high-calorie junk food, that hasn’t quite stopped the First Family from having more dessert pies than main dishes at the White House Thanksgiving dinner, as reported by The New York Times on Nov. 28, 2013.
The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) is renown for her Let’s Move! program for American kids to adopt a healthier diet as well as incorporate an exercise regimen into their everyday lives.
Yet with the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, it looks as if the Family Obama isn’t just giving into a temporary truce with gastronomic temptation, there’s been a full-blown caloric surrender and collaboration that would make the French proud.
A Fist Full of Pies…
Besides the usual turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and the rest of the usual suspects on the First Family’s menu, there’s pies.
And more pies, then a few pies more.
As cited by The Times, nine various types of the favored desserts will be on the White House serving carts:
- Huckleberry pie
- Pecan pie
- Chocolate cream pie
- Sweet potato pie
- Peach pie
- Apple pie
- Pumpkin pie
- Banana cream pie
- Coconut cream pie
