Feast like the President!

I hope you checked out Katies post about Inaguration Day recipes and drinks for an awesome way to ring in our bright shinny new president. If youre still looking for more ways to celebrate the day, why not eat what Obama and 200 guests ate at the Inauguration Luncheon today? I dug up the menu and recipes for their fabulous feast and thought I would share them with you all!

The Inaugural Luncheon began in 1897 when the Senate Committee on Arrangements gave President McKinley and several guests a luncheon, although the current form of the Inaugural Luncheon did not begin until 1953. The food typically reflects the home states of the new President and Vice President.

The first course was a Seafood Stew filled with Maine Lobster and scallops. It was paired with a Buckhorn Vineyards 2007 Sauvignon Blanc.

The second course was A Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck) served with Sour Cherry Chutney and Molasses Sweet Potatoes. It was paired with a Goldeneye 2005 Pinot Noir.

The third and final course was a classic Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake with Sweet Cream Clace and it was paired with Korbel Natural’s “Special Inaugural Cuvee” (a California Champagne).

The recipes for all the courses are available as a download from senate.gov, click this link to download the pdf.

Happy Obama Feast!

drink an Obama americano!

Oh man, i just found out that Krispy Kreme is handing out free Americanos with Barack Obama’s face on them during January 20th: Inauguration day!

i love that Krispy Kreme supports the new president and hands out freebies to show their pride for our nation. not to mention that they also have some AMAZING calorie overdosing heart attack causing donuts that melt in your mouth. mmm…nom nom nom.

anyways, i thought this was such a great way to celebrate a new president: drink his face off!

only a week left and i am already pondering what kind of themed foods i will be preparing for this epic celebration! maybe Obama cookies with his face on ’em????

let me know if you come up with any ideas!
