Thanksgiving Dinner

October 12 was our Thanksgiving Day! This Thanksgiving, our chef decided to BBQ our turkey in the Big Green Egg. He coated turkey with sea salt and extra virgin olive oil, then applied black pepper, Thyme, Rosemary and Oregano.
"Let me know when our birdy is done!"
This is one of our 'must have dish'es on Thanksgiving. The Ultimate Cauliflowers and Broccoli Cheese casserole. He graded Parmesan Reggiano Cheese and placed it with chunk of Gorgonzola bits on top.
I Momo was a daddy's big helper. I cleaned the mess on the plate after he grated cheese. Yes, no dishwasher needed in this kitchen.
Mr. Birdy on the grill. "Getting there!
We wanted our human pup to participate this Thanksgiving so it was his turn to be at the chef's table. (sort of...)
"Is that my dinner??"
One of our mom's favourite, Roasted potato with lots of LOTS of garlic, sliced onion and herbs.
Seems like our dad got this little helper.
He prepared some healthy choice, too. We were interested in these teeny tiny squash. Very cute!
Mr. Birdy's arrival to our kitchen. "WELCOME!!"
"Let me get out from here!!"
"Ahhhh... HELLO~ "
One more shot! :D
Dad sliced our main dinner. "Keep a big slice for me, please!
Our turkey dinner was done. Why no Pinot around here?? When I (Pinot) saw a big frame coming our from our Green Big Egg a while ago, I got very scared. Since them, i have to be a way from the kitchen whenever dad fires up the BBQ. "So can I have two bowls?"
OK.. I only got one bowl as usual.
"Dinner is ready!"
Happy mom posed to the camera.
Mom also prepared our pup's first Thanksgiving Dinner plate.
Mom wanted to make desert BUT dad suggested not to. BOL So they bought this pumpkin cheese cake.
"Are you saying that is our share? Where does the rest go??"
We were trilled to share Thanksgiving dinner with our pup but... guess what? He wasn't into turkey at all!!! hahahahaha.... (Mom is here... :) Even if I am a lacto vegetarian, I have given James some meat but it's been always hidden under sauce or veggies so this was his first time to see actual meat pieces. I wonder if this is why he wasn't into turkey meat?!?) "NO Way, Mom!!"
Thank you very much dad for wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner!!! ***** RIP Momo the hammy ****** We've just noticed that our friend, Shushu and Kero's beloved sister Momo went across the bridge on August 4th. (Photo: courtesy of Shushu's blog.)
Momo, we hope you keep smiling just like you do on this photo and enjoy running in the wheel. Momo & Pinot/J & R

Kiss the cook, Momo and Pinot.
What a feast to my eyes, Canada is too far away for me, next year definitely I'll book a flight to be there on Oct 12th. There, reservation is made.
Our pawrents love your family, specially James, the little helper looks so busy preparing the dinner but when it comes to chow down time, he does not enjoy the bird, hand it to me James, I'm drooling over here.
Love y'all.

Happy thanksgiving maties.
That turkey looks pretty good cooked in the big green egg. Our Pinkies used our big green egg today. They smoked some snapper, beef sausages and pork fillet. I think they need some tips on how to smoke food because the fish and pork were too dry......oh well, they ate it anyway.

Hi Momo and Pinot,

Nice woooh

Boredlittleflower said...

Our human puppy is also a vegetarian (when none of us in the family are!) who refuse meat or anything that felt or tasted like meat. She seems to be growing out of it lately (but still does not enjoy it much).

We see the little helper! Soon, he will not only be helping on 'ground level' but at the table as well. Get him to drop you guys some food from up there!

Love, Baileys and MAen
