•• The lovely Elizabeth Perkins joined today the crew on ABC’s “The Chew”. She was talking about she hates Thanksgiving. Well, she doesn’t hate everything about it but she does hate when someone brings a guest. She said she doesn’t want a guest at her Thanksgiving. She wants to stay in her pajamas and be a bum. She doesn’t want to talk to someone she doesn’t know.
Clinton Kelly said Elizabeth Perkins is a “bitch” on Weeds. And she agreed. Perkins said her character was named one of the worst TV mothers once by People Magazine. But she said she is not like that in real life. She just plays a mean mother on TV. Elizabeth also said when she was in the movie Big, with Tom Hanks, he almost wasn’t her costar. She said when she signed on for the movie Robert de Niro was going to be playing the role of Josh, the young boy who makes the wish to become big. She said they never shot the alternate ending either, which would have been Perkins’ character shrunken down and turned into a child again.
She also talked about her diagnoses with type 1 diabetes. She said her entire life changed in 2005 when she was diagnosed. She said it changed the way she ate and cooked, among many other aspects of her life. She is now a part of an organization called Diabetes Co-Stars, an organization that helps build a support network for people with the disease.
On the show, Elizabeth wanted to make a Thanksgiving dish that would be vegetarian friendly so she went with her roasted vegetable medley recipe, which you can get below.
1 Medium onion
1 Sweet potato
2 Cups of brussels sprouts
1 Granny Smith apple
1 Cup of tart cherries (pitted). Can use canned cherries.
1/2 Cup of olive oil
2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
Chop the onion, sweet potato, parsnip, brussels sprouts, apple and pear into equal sizes, about a 1/4 inch think. Add the vegetables and fruit to the pan with oil and begin sautéing.
After the vegetables and fruit have been softened up, about 5 minutes, add the cherries, the cinnamon, the rosemary and the balsamic. Saute a few minute longer until the flavors have blended and the vegetables and fruits are soft. Salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Transfer the medley into a slightly oiled casserole dish, or any other dish you can cook in the oven, and put in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
