Sacrebleu! At 2,500 calories, state dinner menu is triple Michelles healthy lunch
By Dave Boyer The Washington Times Tuesday, February 11, 2014
The fattening state dinner served at the White House on Tuesday night for the president of France might prompt first lady Michelle Obama to tell guests afterward, Lets Move.
Theyll need to burn off a few of the estimated 2,500 calories theyve just consumed.
Rep. Rodney Davis, Illinois Republican and a critic of the administrations school lunch requirements, called the high-calorie State Dinner menu the height of hypocrisy.
Even if youre estimating a small cut of steak, this is a menu where youre talking 2,500 calories, which is almost three times as much as what the first lady and the USDA allow our school kids to eat in the school lunch program, Mr. Davis said.
Mr. Davis, who said school districts need more flexibility in their meal options, has introduced a bill that includes the requirement for state dinners and meals served in the White House cafeteria to abide by the same low-calorie guidelines as school lunches.
The menu for the dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande featured a main course of dry-aged ribeye beef served with blue cheese, 12 varieties of potatoes and quail eggs.
The first course was American Osetra caviar, farmed from sturgeon in estuaries in Illinois, followed by a winter garden salad.

Marie Antoinette would be so proud of Mooselle.
Lunch and Dinner are completely different meals. What is her demands for dinner caloric intake. That is what should be compared.
The fat azz didn’t explode on tofu.
Twelve varieties of potatoes?
That’s more than the pies the Obamas have for holidays.
Where is the media picture of her two dogs eating better than the low information voters who voted for her husband? Caption “thier dogs eat better than you”, steak anyone?
Cotton candy for dessert at a state dinner?
What’s that, to justify the cotton candy machine Michelle had the WH kitchen buy for late-night snacks?
Wasn’t this state dinner done in a tent? So Khadafi-ish!
This is all exagerrated . . . only the whites of the quail eggs are being served!
I hope their stomachs burst and gallbladders explode! Good riddance to these negroid carpetbaggers!
I did not see any pictures of Lord Obama at this dinner. I wonder if maybe it was because this was the occasion he used to show off his new Field Marshal’s uniform. I am sure he has one that benefits the pResident of the largest Super Banana Republic in history.
Her azz already outweighs Barry.
WH dinner for France’s Hollande
The first course was American Osetra caviar, farmed from the estuaries of Illinois, paired with quail eggs from Pennsylvania and a dozen varieties of potatoes from farms in New York, Idaho and California.
That was followed by a salad of petite radishes and baby carrots on a bed of lettuce and splashed with red-wine vinaigrette made using honey from the beehive on the South Lawn. The salad was served in a spherical clear, glass bowl that resembles a terrarium.
The main course, dry-aged rib eye beef from a farm in Greeley, Colo., was served with blue cheese, charred shallots, oyster mushrooms and braised chard.
Dessert is chocolate malted cake, described as a modern version of a layer cake made with bittersweet chocolate from Obama’s native Hawaii, Florida tangerines and served with vanilla ice cream from Pennsylvania.
After dinner, guests can dip into a serving dish made entirely of sugar to sample fudge made of Vermont maple syrup, shortbread cookies made with lavender from Mrs. Obama’s garden and cotton candy dusted with orange zest.
The square and round tables are covered in blue with clear-backed chairs, while the oblong tables have mirrored tops.
The White House florist, who studied floral artistry in Paris, created French-inspired bouquets that are meant to evoke the feeling of a painting by Monet, the French impressionist.
The “deconstructed” arrangements that means the flowers and greenery are not all in one vase but are in separate vessels were made using quince branches, acacia leaves, white and purple iris flowers and bamboo.
The desserts sound calorific.
What a bunch of low class clowns.
I think they are saving a big bunch of Tater Tots to fry up if the Israelies cowtow to Lurch's peace plan.
No pictures of the Mooch shoveling into her mouth like usual? Did they outlaw cameras again? Trailer trash would be offended if I called her that.
