What the Pope won't be eating tonight

Washington DC has Papal Fever as Pope Benedict XVI makes his visit to our fair town, and tonight there will be a dinner in his honor...unfortunately he won't be attending as he'll be at a prayer service with U.S. Bishops.

The dinner will be packed with plenty of celebrities though, including, "former Los Angeles Dodgers baseball manager Tommy Lasorda, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader John Boehner" and five Supreme Court justices (I'm sure you can guess which ones).

But now what we're all wondering about - what's for dinner. According to the AP report, "morel-encrusted diver scallops, spatzle, angel hair asparagus bisque, veal, white truffle-potato dumplings, carrots and mushrooms, lettuces and candied pumpkin seeds, squash carpaccio, pumpkin oil vinaigrette, raspberry crisp and mint coulis."
