Vladimir Putin was raving about the Q served up on President Bush's ranch near Crawford. Anyone know who catered? Also, who was the western swing band?

    No, but here's the menu in case you missed it:

    per the Washington Post, the menu is:
    The menu, in addition to the grilled sourdough bread, will be a celebration of southern and Tex-Mex cuisine: guacamole salad, mesqu ite-smoked peppered beef tenderloin, southern fried catfish, fire-roasted potatoes with poblano peppers, old-fashioned green beans, Texas onion butter with cornbread muffins, and pecan pie with vanilla ice cream.

    There was no report of a vegetarian option.

      The caterer is Tom Perini of Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap, Texas. It's not far from Abeline and it is fantastic. His beef tenderloin is the finest smoked beef I have ever tasted.
