Happy Thanksgiving Folks!

We had a great day of cooking and feasting.


I'm going to put you to work Kitchen Aid.
I forgot what the screwdriver and can of compressed air were for.
This year we opted to just make a breast instead of a whole bird. It was so good, I impressed myself. I made an herb butter that I spread under the skin. I also skewered a couple apples to it too because it was a little wobbly without the thighs and legs.
Here's a shot of the spread.

And a Virgil's Rootbeer (the BEST!) to put it over the top.
Even Nunu got a small plate.


She's not so into corn.

Looks good. How is your Aerogarden?
Here is a link to a good forum about them http://www.aerogardengrowers.com/
I'm looking forward to Feb 2nd. See you then.

We did just about the same thing. Turkey breast instead of the whole bird, and for the wife and I it was plenty. I made an awesome pumpkin pie-cake instead of a pumpkin pie. Here's to quiet Thanksgivings in Hawaii. Happy Thanksgiving!

Malea said...

ahh, celebrities, they're just like us ;) Right now, I'm thankful for your cute blog. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

Yummy! Virgil's is the best! The Cream Soda is INCREDIBLE! Happy Turkey Day! I was thinking I should start celebrating American Thanksgiving (I'm Canadian), so I would have an excuse to cook another turkey!

Totally awesome! Thanks for sharing!

AtomBlonde said...

I love Nunu's leftover plate. Who needs corn when there is turkey???
Sounds like a delicious day! :)

Thomas said...

hmmm yummy... :)
you made this on your own?

Abigail said...

Maybe Nunu not being into corn is a good thing, if you get my drift...

Happy day after Thanksgiving.

MadCarlotta said...

You'll be happy she didn't eat the corn when it comes time to walk her.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Anna said...

Hi Jorge!! I'm the first and this is the first comment I put in you blog but I look it every day and I really like it because I'm studying English at school (I'm from Barcelona) Well I'll put more comments ok? Byee

Alisha Rene' said...

Happy Turkey Day Jorge and company! We did only the breast this year as well. It was yummy. The best part this year, my hubby did all the cooking - WOO HOO.
Hope your black Friday is enjoyed watching fun movies and avoiding shopping malls!

Happy Day after Thanksgiving! Your Pie Looked great. This is what I do w/ my Kitchen Aid. After dinner is ready I was the bowl and put it in the freezer, dry. It gets nice and cold-perfect for mixing homemade whipped cream fast and creamy. It will stay whipped for about 1-2 days. It would be grat on your awesome looking pumpkin pie. RU you guys shopping today?

Happy Thanksgiving Jorge!

Thank you so much for your blog, it's so refreshing to get the Celebrity point of view of their own lives, rather than the papparazzi/people/tmz/hyped up versions. I love your show, and I've gotten to be a much bigger fan of you, (though Hurley was always one of my favorite characters as it was) from getting a glimpse of your humor and personality. Hope to see you in more things after LOST!

Bad_Robot said...

Primero!

~Happy Post-Thanksgiving/Recovery Friday to you Jorge and everyone who reads this great blog.

Your turkey looked very tasty! Well done~

Jessie At Home! said...

Very nice! I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. I hope you and Beth and Nanu have a wonderful Holiday season!

ps - don't you just LOVE that Kitchen Aid mixer. That and my Oaster blender are just the coolest! Kitchen gadgets are my weekness.

Nikki Stafford said...

LOL! Well, that's OK because you'd probably end up seeing that corn again anyway (d'oh). Awesome spread. We had our Thanksgiving in Canada weeks ago... I really need to start celebrating the American one, too, just for the hell of it.

Sgrmac said...

Happy Turkey Day Jorge - nice spread and it's good to see another fan of the "baked green bean casserole"

Judy in Indiana said...

Hope you had a nice day and that some people that you love to be around were able to be with you. It looks like a very tasty spread.

Ezequiel said...

Happy thanksgiving for you too Jorge :)

Kashmir said...

Dogs rack up on Thanksgiving. My two got gravy on kibble with meat chunks.

Looks like you had a great spread.

Jules said...

How awesome! Your dinner looks terrific. I can compare my dinner to yours. We went to the in-laws where they brined a turkey and had a bunch of sides that were tasty. Your pumpkin pie looks awesome!!! Will you send me a slice if I ask???


I still want your Aero Garden. ;)

Jenea said...

Happy Thanksgivind day!!! I am very interested -"In Hawaii was Parade"?

mabochda said...

LOL Milo doesn't eat peas. He spits them out!

Topanga said...

LOL.. Happy Thanksgiving Jorge. Nunu is so cute. My dog would have inhaled that corn.. and Nunu if she'd been standing between her and the corn.

SciFiHorrorFem said...

We had our meal today. Turkey Breast, Gravy, Au Gratin Potatoes, Green Beans, Corn, Stuffing and Cheese Bread! I baked 3 kinds of cookies yesterday. Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin and Peanut Butter! Warming up the leftovers for dinner this evening, but not baking more bread. Stuffing's enough! LOL! WILL cook more green beans, though. Polished them off at lunch and want more! LOL! Great Thanksgiving spread there, Jorge!

jennY said...

wow thats a perfect spread! gobble gobble!

Sea Turtle Lover said...

we dont have thanks giving but i think was very nice of you to share with your dog, jajaja except for the corn... what kind of dog is it?

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

glad you thanksgiving was a good one..spread looks very tasty. I volunteered at senior citizen and my small town fed over 350 people..days like yesterday makes me feel sorry for anyone that doesn't live in West, By Goddess, Texas..

Erin said...

Mmmmm, looks delicious! And corn-shunning Nunu made me laugh...

Suzie-Q said...

Beats the pizza I had.

Irishcoda said...

Looks good! Glad you had a Happy Thanksgiving, we did too! :) My son always brines the turkey before he roasts it, fills it with aromatics instead of stuffing. Yum!

D said...

Love your pic with the Kitchen Aid. I use mine all the time--actually wore one out and had to buy another one. I, too, make an herbed butter rub to put under the skin. Your turkey breast and the sides look very delicious! We're having a delayed Thanksgiving so my husband (deployed) can enjoy it with us on his R&R soon. Nothing like two birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas wrapped up in one month. :) I'm glad Nunu liked her meal--tell her the corn is good for her. :)

kake79 said...

Our family did deep-fried turkey for the first time this year. YUM! It was so juicy and flavorful.

Therapeutic Ramblings said...

Smart dog!

Jenny said...

Looks like you three had a good Thanksgiving. The food looks good. Happy Thanksgiving!

ehouse said...

Happy Thanksgiving! I don't think I can eat again till January! I'm very thankful that you share a bit of your life on here, it's always a pleasure to see what you are up to. Take care.

J.D. said...

hehe nice pics and happy thanksgiving :)

Tena Lynn said...

Hope you guys had a really wonderful day. Thank you for sharing your spread, it looks like it was wonderful.

I had something similar and spent the day with my son and a friend and she brought wine.

I could leave you a piece of our Cheesecake Factory snickers or raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake. :-)

Besos~~

Zindy S. D. Nielsen said...

Happy Thanksgiving Jorge, seems you had a great day :)
We don't celebrate this tradition in Denmark - we are a pretty boring nation when it comes to traditions in my opinion. There is not much tradition for Halloween either, which is such a pity.

Emily Alder said...

I just wanted you to know that I love reading your blog. It's great and so interesting to see little snippets from your life (even though I've never met you).

And I sympathize with Nunu-- I think corn is the worst of all the vegetables, and that includes brussels sprouts.

Ian said...

I cooked my very first thanksgiving turkey this year. It turned out fantastic. We all had a pot luck thing at the theatre i work at, so it was a very interesting and culturally diverse thanksgiving dinner.

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

Awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Our pet rats get pumpkin pie every year. This year we pigged out on so much stuff, (50+ people!), that we had almost nothing for the critters to nosh on afterward. So I made them a pumpkin pie. (yea, rat mom.)

Miss Scarlett said...

Awww - I love that. My dog leaves the things she doesn't like - but she takes it right off the plate!

MissusDe said...

Nunu would eat corn if you made my special Cornbread Souffle. I only make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas because it's like a major fat bomb. The ingredients include cornbread mix, canned cream corn, butter, eggs, sour cream ... ohmygawd it's so good! It truly is freakin' delicious. My kids inhale it, I swear.
