WASHINGTON, D.C. — First Lady Michelle Obama launched the latest upgrade to her Let’s Move healthy lifestyle campaign this morning with an announcement of a new Friday Night Haystacks tradition at the White House.

Citing a recent report by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) calling haystacks “the most balanced meal in America,” the First Lady decided the dish was perfect for Friday night entertaining at the White House.

“It’s a great ice breaker because it gets everyone up and moving around a large table with lots of fresh ingredients,” said Obama. “We’ve done some trial runs and so far everyone loves haystacks because you get to create your own masterpiece and it’s really hard to go wrong with veggies, chips and some cheese.”

The First Lady admitted that initially she didn’t even know what haystacks were. After discovering the truth about the dish, Obama said she thought the name “haystacks” sounded much more fun than “taco salad.”

“Whoever came up with the name for that dish is a genius,” she said.

  1. Too bad the First Lady is only now discovering haystacks. Just think if she had discovered them 7 years ago! Let’s hope she leaves the recipe in the White House for her successor (Bill C., Jane S., Melania T., Heidi C., or Karen K.) so he or she can keep the tradition alive. Wouldn’t it be great to see “First Gentleman” Bill serving a Friday night treat of haystacks?
