all the president's menus

walter scheib, former white house chef, cooks up a delicious tale of his time in the basement at 1600 pennsylvania.
if you believe the old adage that you are what you eat, it is not surprising america's current president seems artificial, bland, insipid and rather unsubstantial. the man who cooked president george w. bush's breakfasts, lunches and dinners for the first four years of his presidency reveals in a new book that the most powerful man in the world likes no more than a cheap processed cheese sandwich for lunch.

"kraft singles on white bread was one of this president's most requested lunch items," says walter scheib, who, from 1994 until he was sacked by laura bush in early 2005, was executive chef at the white house. - sunday herald

And Bush's nickname for Scheib was, of all things, "Cookie."

How did that strike you, Jill?

I can only think of 3 reasons someone would request Kraft singles "often".

1) They're sheltered, and they've never had better cheese
2) They're poor, and they can't afford better cheese
3) They're stupid, and they fear change.

So it's probably one of those.

Why does that not surprise me?

That's a nutritionless meal that makes for poor thinking processes. Gee, there's a shocker.

For really good food information on how to eat healthy, go to whfoods.com. Great web site.

My eight year old picked up a pkg of "pasteurized process cheese food" held it up towards me and yelled at me from down the grocery store aisle "Hey look, Mom, they have to tell you its FOOD!"
