Skip to comments.Waffles and Grits a White House Favorite, First Lady Says
Posted on 02/23/2009 5:02:20 AM PST by paulycy
The guests at Sunday evening's black tie White House dinner for the nation's governors feasted on servings of Chesapeake crab agnolottis, wagyu beef, Nantucket scallops and huckleberry cobbler for dessert. But thanks to First Lady Michelle Obama, a bit more of the day-to-day eating habits of the new family living at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave has been learned.
"There are some mean waffles and grits that are made in the morning that have become a regular staple for some of us," Obama said. But she didn't reveal exactly for who that breakfast pairing has become a morning favorite. Though she was quick to add that she's not the one who eats waffles every day

I’m just sayin that’s what the tabliods say....you know dass all
Oprah’s main man Stedman got cut out of her will in 2008 -so much for deferred compensation
She and Gayle King just bosom buddies
That would be Wagyu and caviar...for the Obamas.
These two ARE the "racial stereotype!
If Michelle keeps eating that stuff, she’ll have to get a bigger trunk for all that junk.
You must not be from the south. Grits are eaten by all sorts of persuasions here in the south and southwest. Well, I think the demarcation line for automatic serving of grits over hashbrowns as a breakfast side order is about Greenville, Tx. Of course, there is a gray line of about 100 miles each way, east/west where you may get one or the other or be asked for your preference. by the way, I have eaten a lot of breakfasts across this great country and have never seen grits served globbed in the middle of a waffle...
Pray for America and Our Troops
Wrong, wrong, wrong. Selma, AL. Auburn Graduate, too. Since I left the south, I've never eaten grits willingly. Michele grew up in relative affluence in Chicago. She never had to eat cracklin' grits when there was nothing else to eat like I did growing up.
Grits and turnip greens are a bad memory of my childhood and adolescence.
I thought Waffles was the code name for Gigolo John Kerry and that grits was the code name for Representative Clyburn.
“I may vomit! The woman who orders room service lobster and champagne at a fancy hotel eats waffles and grits? What a blatant pandering to the black electorate. Pretty soon the electorate wont be able to afford the electricity to cook those waffles and grits.”
Pretty soon the Obama’s will have reduced the blacks back to slavery and they can use a wood burnin’ stove:)
As for me, I was raised on the west coast and now live in the east. The whole hashbrowns vs. grits thing cracks me up. That was, at least in part, what made me think this story was funny.

I Will eat livermush but I don’t care for hominy soaked in lye.
What’d you expect from a $315,000/year hospital outreach vp ?
They are also having white lawn jockeys installed on the White House lawn.
We could all afford those steaks IF we didn’t have to cough up the money to bailout mortgage malingerers, Wall Street, and failed banks.
>> And if I meant to say Eggo, I would have typed it that way.
ROFL! A great start to my morning.
Methinks Michelle eats too many waffles.
Also, Michelle needs to lay off the butter and syrup.
