We have to admit, we were worried we'd be forced to go cold turkey when the Obamas left the White House three weeks ago. However, we're thrilled to report that Michelle Obama has no plans to leave us high and dry. According to the Los Angeles Times, the former First Lady is set to appear as a guest on the new season on MasterChef Junior.

OK, so maybe the next time we see her won't involve stunning ball gowns or iconic speeches, but it will combine two of our other favorite things: cute kids and food.

The L.A. Times reports that Graham Elliot will not return as judge for this season of MasterChef Junior—which premiered Thursday night on Fox. Instead, the fifth season will feature guest stars—such as Martha Stewart, a few of the Muppets, and Obama herself—in his place.

This isn't the first cooking show appearance for the former FLOTUS, but would be the first time she'll be on a food competition show. We can't imagine her being a tough critic, but if the kids are smart, they'll go heavy on the vegetables.
