Inauguration Day

What a special and historic moment as I watched Barack Obama being sworn in as President. I've been in the U.S. for 9 years now and today I finally feel American. 

There are so many celebration events taking place but here's one to note - the Inaugural Luncheon - ice cream is on the menu!

First Course: Seafood Stew

Second Course: A Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck) served with Sour Cherry Chutney and Molasses Sweet Potatoes

Third Course: Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake and Sweet Cream Glace


  1. You should create an inauguration flavor: Obamango, or maybe Baracky Road!

    Or, even better, as you are now a Canadian-American, maybe a flavor to bridge the cultural and philosophical chasm that separates the two countries that you call home(s). Something like poutine apple pie, or maple syrup hot dog?

  2. Mmmm. I'd try those cross-cultural flavours for sure! :)
