You're probably aware that George H. W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States, passed away on November 30th. His funeral was today, and in his honor Hubby Tony had the day off. I had several errands and work commitments first thing in the morning, but when I got home Tony was watching the broadcast on TV. After I finished my paperwork I joined in. Eventually we got hungry and decided to go out to lunch, listening to the ceremony on the radio in the car.
Delish about favorite Presidential foods, where I learned that George H. W. Bush put hot sauce on everything "just like a good ole boy from Texas". I often eat food with built-in heat or add sauce to spice it up so I could relate.
We ended up at a restaurant that featured hamburger sliders and other miniature sandwiches. As we often do, Tony and I decided to split our food half and half. He ordered a salad, and I chose three sandwiches...a traditional slider, a Hot Chicken slider, and a Philly sandwich. (We did NOT get anything with broccoli, because of the President's stated hatred for it. He said during a news conference in 1990 "I do not like broccoli and I haven't liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it." He went on to say, "And I'm president of the United States and I'm not going to eat any more broccoli.")
When the food came we requested a bottle of Tabasco, and used it liberally. Here's to you, President.
