At the White House Thanksgiving dinner Thursday, there were no surprises on the menu. There was turkey and honey-baked ham, cornbread and oyster stuffing, sweet potato and mashed potatoes and six kinds of pie. Fifty guests were on the list, including staff, friends and family.

MELISSA BLOCK, host:

And today at the White House, we have heard of no efforts to crash Thanksgiving dinner. There were no surprises on the menu, either. The White House says family, friends and staff dined on turkey and honey baked ham, cornbread and oyster stuffing, sweet and mashed potatoes, plus greens, macaroni and cheese and green bean casserole, and six kinds of pie.
