Watch Michelle Obama Talk Vegetables on the Daily Show

First Lady Michelle Obama's new cookbook American Grown is now in stores, and she stopped by The Daily Show to explain to Jon Stewart how to get kids to eat more vegetables. "As a parent of two children," counters Stewart, "unless this garden sprouts cheeseburgers? No." According to Obama, the secret isn't cheeseburgers, it's pizza: healthy flatbread pizzas with lots of vegetables, naturally.

Loved this one! La Côte Blanche Chardonnay Macon-Villages, which is from the South of Burgundy (Bourgogne) France. La Côte Blanche is bright, tart, with citrus, lemon, and some toast on the nose; I found this wine easy to drink and very refreshing, this wine is a great value - You can find it at Ensminger Liquors Store
