Full holiday menu for Obamas; 6 pies for dessert
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is spending a quiet Thanksgiving at the White House where the belly-stuffing menu featured all the holiday's basics.
There's thyme-roasted turkey and honey-baked ham, cornbread stuffing and oyster stuffing, braised winter greens and macaroni and cheese. Don't forget the green bean casserole, sweet potato gratin, mashed potatoes and dinner rolls.
If there's room for dessert, the Obamas can pick from among six pies: banana cream, coconut cream, pumpkin, apple, pecan and cherry.
The president said in his weekly radio and Internet address that the first family planned to spend the day with friends and family - catching up, eating good food and watching some football.
He says Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday "because, more than any other, it is uniquely American."
