The First Lady is headed to Dallas next week. A news release posted to the White House press page details the schedule for Michelle Obama's three-day trip, which will celebrate the anniversary of her Let's Move! initiative. She'll spend Thursday evening and Friday morning in the DFW area, meeting with school representatives, parents and other notables.

Both Michelle and her husband are known for a passionate love of food, and have been spotted indulging all facets of dining, from humble grease pits to the nation's finest restaurants. Since she's spending a full day in the DFW area, we thought we'd offer some dining recommendations.

Michele has been spotted at enough burger restaurants that she's actually received some negative attention from critics, who say she preaches healthy eating but then overindulges greasy chow.

Don't worry, Michelle. Texas is the last state that would judge you for eating an oily gut bomb. Might you try Tim's Love Shack while you're out in Fort Worth? The burgers are solid and they've got a great deal on canned beer.

For dinner here in Dallas, we think Michelle should head to Smoke, in Oak Cliff. While Texas is known for barbecue, it doesn't have to be served out of a divey grease-pit. Tim Byres can show the First Lady honest Texas cooking with a level of refinement we know she'll appreciate.

If that's not her cup of tea, she might try Bolsa. The restaurant has built its reputation on cooking with fresh, local ingredients that would resonate with Michelle's healthy initiatives. Either way, area chefs better watch out. The First Lady has to dine somewhere in Dallas, and an Obama endorsement has been known to drive foodie followers for months.

Her schedule shows she won't be in DFW long enough for any meal other the one scheduled at an undisclosed Olive Garden in Ft. Worth on Thursday at 5:30. Immediately prior to that she will be in Little Rock until 3:15 (so no DFW lunch), and on Friday she will be in Dallas judging a cooking competition at 9am (breakfast) and then would have to jump on a plane right after that to be in Florida by 3:30 that same day (so again, no DFW lunch). Some Olive Garden in Ft. Worth is the only lucky spot.

Is there any time alloted for using the latrine?

Oh the suspense is tantalizing.  Will she pig out at a burger shack with a 1700+ calorie meal? Or dine on her favorites, Kobe beef and arugula with an outrageous price tag?   No tofu and veggies for the nations food Nazi.

Yes, Obama is a horrible president, and his administration will go down as one of the worst in American history, but, he is STILL the president. No whining.

There have been worst Presidents, Republican and Democrat. Obama is far from the worst.  "Just me" is just whining for whining sake.

No, Just Me is whining because that's what Republicans do.  And they are better at it than anyone else.
