The first family celebrated a quiet Thanksgiving together at the White House this year.
According to the Associated Press, “presidents have preferred to spend the holiday at Camp David, the secluded Maryland mountaintop retreat, but the Obama has more often chosen to have dinner at the Executive Mansion.”
The menu included turkey, honey-baked ham, cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, greens, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and dinner rolls. For dessert, President Obama, First Lady Michelle, Malia and Sasha enjoyed their choice of huckleberry pie, pecan pie, chocolate cream pie, sweet potato pie, banana cream pie and/or coconut cream pie.
In addition to the dinner, the AP reports the commander in chief called several members of the armed forces to thank them for their service. He talked to 10 service members and wished them and their families “a happy Thanksgiving.”
