White House lunch!

I'm still at my office at 10 p.m., but days like today make it worth it. I had lunch at the White House in the State Room! It was as amazing as it sounds. First Lady Bush did her annual tour of the Christmas decorations. This year, the theme was a Holiday at the National Parks.


Beyond the fabulous food, there was a lovely tree decorated with 347 handmade ornament representing the national parks and monuments. This photo is the three of us at the tree in the Blue Room.


The food was equally fabulous. There's a 300-pound White House gingerbread house made with the original architect's plans. So adorable and impressive!


If you want to know about the buffet menu, check it out here. Or check out my slide show below.



This is really the most exciting thing to ever happen to me! The shrimp was fabulous, the lamb succulent and the dessert decadent. I hope I get asked back again!



Back to work.

Impressive desserts, and there's nothing more beautiful than a big old bowl of shrimp!

Man, I'm jealous! I've always wanted to see (and taste!) the food there ever since hearing it described in the West Wing.
