    First Lady Michelle Obama’s battle for school lunch reform continued to heat up Friday as she urged a room full of kids and parents to become advocates for healthy lunch programs, despite “grownups’ ” attempts to block reform.

    “And while the vast majority of the schools are doing just fine with these new standards, those few complaining voices happen to be the loudest voices and they’re getting the most attention right now,” the first lady said at the third annual Kids’ State Dinner, slamming Congress for “undoing some of the progress” made.

    With 54 kid representatives from each state and territory attending the dinner after submitting winning recipes, Obama took the opportunity to center her remarks on school lunch, suggesting the voices of parents and children are necessary in the fight for healthy, nutritious lunches. A panel of judges — which included White House chef Sam Kass — picked the tastiest and healthiest recipes among the 1,500 submissions.

    The nutritious component of the contest prompted recipes such as winning dishes “Grillin’ Out Veggie Style” — a seasoned black bean burger topped with avocado spread and served with a side of carrot salad that was cooked up by 10-year-old Georgian Mira Solomon. Another dish, crafted by Michigan’s Elena Hirsch, 11, was dubbed “Barack-oli and Mich-room Obama-let.” The goat cheese and veggie omelette included “carMALIAized” onions, named after 16-year-old Malia Obama.

    Though declaring “party in the White House,” at the beginning of her speech, the first lady’s tone turned serious when talking policy. With a sense of urgency, she warned of interest groups that want to keep with the status quo on school lunches.

    Yeah- parents. Eeeeeevil parents, who refuse to surrender control of their children to the benevolent arms of an all-knowing, all-powerful State.

    Piss off, you hypocritical bitch. You didn't grow that double wide ass eating black bean burgers and celery sticks.

    Now, now, you know they have to keep the nasty one busy. At least it probably keeps her away from baracky more of the time. It's probably a contest who's meaner---Michelle or Hillary.

    She probably eats very little of that healthy food--but lots of bean sandwiches can be fattening, too. Know that wouldn't want to be around her when she gets that super nasty look on her face.

    There is no way my kids would have eaten that crap.

    We need to bring back the brown bag.
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    I suppose an expert vegetarian chef could make this faux-burger reasonable tasty, but this "creation" is very time-intensive. A school cafeteria staff isn't going to burn the time necessary to cook and cool the beans, mash and season the beans, add any filler ingredients, form the mash into patties, and then cook the things (on a slab "grill", not a real grill). NOT. GOING. TO. HAPPEN. As for the "carrot salad", would this be some version of the classic mayo-drenched carrot and raisin salad? That can be fairly palatable, even from a school cafeteria, but I'm sure Mooch-chelle's sycophants could screw up even some that basic and classic.

    Another dish, crafted by Michigan’s Elena Hirsch, 11, was dubbed “Barack-oli and Mich-room Obama-let.” The goat cheese and veggie omelette included “carMALIAized” onions, named after 16-year-old Malia Obama.
    The pol-worship here is nauseating. I could only bring myself to try this concoction if I was not told the sycophantic name given it. Were it goat cheese, caramelized (a fancy word for grilled!) onions, green onions and possibly diced vine-ripened tomatoes, it could be pretty tasty. I suspect it's been screwed up with an unbalanced load of miscellaneous chopped vegetables. Did Mooch-chelle eat one of these omelets? Without gagging or spitting it out? And again, there's the realities of cafeteria cookery. A school cafeteria isn't going to be getting vast quantities of fresh veggies, nor storing them. There is no way in Hades cafeteria staff will burn the large amounts of prep time and then making individual omelets one by one.

    This Potemkin Village fauxto-op exercise was made of Papier Mooch-che'!
