Apparently the current White House chef revealed at an international cheffery gathering that GWB loves cheeseburger pizza for supper. For those not in the know, this is a margarita pizza, topped with hamburger, cheese ( more,) bacon, pickle, ketchup.....relish? Sort of a complete cholesterol party whammo right in the kisser.
For lunch, the Prez is said to favor p.b. and honey on cinnamon bread, with p. chips and pickles.
Ok-- at first I thought, he's preggers, there can be no other explanation.
Guardian columnist Zoe Williams pondered the fact that the WHouse went to great lengths to emphasize Bush's exercise program and that the p. chips were "homemade." ( She also asked this question: " How come a grown man eats like a child?" )
She went on to note that " Domino's in the US admits ( it) has the highest cholesterol of any of its pizzas, and a calorie count of 1,600. Now, I just recreated this pizza, at home, with ingredient guidance from the Sun, and I don't see how they could possibly have kept the calories so low. I'm not kidding.
A large cheese and tomato base is 1,200, before you even start to heap upon it the glistening animal products. Minced beef, 500 calories, onion fried in oil, another 150, four tablespoons of ketchup, 60, four rashers of bacon, 224, more cheese, 240, and some gherkins. This pizza is a magnificent 2,374 calories and, unlike Domino's, I don't have access to industrial fats, which we all know are more calorie-dense than olive oil."
She admitted it smelled good, mind you. But then, she is a self-described "pregnant person."
Anyway-- the Prez enjoys his foods. A fella's got to be fueled, after all.
