Plenty of Pie at White House Thanksgiving Dinner

Vacclav/iStockphoto/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — The president will have his pick of pie this Thanksgiving.

The White House released the menu from Thursday’s Thanksgiving dinner. A standard thyme-roasted turkey and a honey-baked ham will be served with cornbread and oyster stuffings, braised winter greens, sweet potato gratin, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and dinner roles.

Of course, there will also be macaroni and cheese served. On Wednesday, President Obama continued the tradition of pardoning a pair of turkeys — this year’s turkeys were named Mac and Cheese.

When it comes time for dessert, though, Obama may have a tough time choosing between the six choices of pie. The White House will serve banana cream, coconut cream, pumpkin, apple, pecan and cherry pies.

Last year’s menu actually contained nine types of pie, including chocolate cream, sweet potato, peach and huckleberry, and lacking cherry.
