ABC's Yunji de Nies and Sara Just report: New First Family, new Thanksgiving Day menu. The Bush Thanksgiving Day meal was nearly identical year to year, the family favorites no doubt returning annually to the table as they do for so many families.
After some clamoring from the sparse working-the-holiday press corps, the White House has released the Obamas’ Thanskgiving Day menu.
Gone are the zucchini gratin, the gazpacho and the pumpkin mousse trifle that were Bush family favorites.
The Obamas are having an equally plentiful meal. In addition to the traditional turkey, the family is having a honey baked ham. There will also be two kinds of stuffing (oyster and cornbread), macaroni and cheese, and six — yes, six — different kinds of pie.
The first family is hosting about 50 guests at the White House today, including family, friends and staff, according to the press office.
We are told that of all of the items on the generous table, the president’s favorites are turkey and pumpkin pie.
Here is the full menu:
Macaroni and Cheese
Green Bean Casserole
Banana Cream Pie
Sweet Potato Pie
