Obamas celebrate White House Thanksgiving with…6 pies

November 25, 2010


It’s pies, pies, and more pies at the White House Thanksgiving dinner table this year.

First Lady Michelle Obama, an advocate against child obesity, told an interviewer that it was OK for folks to eat pie on Thanksgiving, and as if to set an example, the White House released a list of the SIX pies the Obama family and its friends would be enjoying on Thursday.

Apple, pumpkin, sweet potato, banana cream, cherry, and huckleberry pies were all on the Obama list. 

Sweets weren’t the only items on the table, though. Here is the rest of the menu released by the White House:
