Since yesterday, Sherri Shepherd has been sharing pictures of her upcoming Thanksgiving dinner, which she’s planning on preparing from scratch this year. But she’s going to have the help of her 10-year-old son, Jeffrey, who’s apparently got a knack for cooking.
Yesterday, Shepherd shared a couple videos of her son preparing cream of wheat dressed like a professional chef, complete with the smock and chef’s hat. In one of the captions, the comedian explained, “Jeffrey is showing an affinity for cooking… I wanted a doctor but I will settle for a chef any day! Love my son!” She also included a photo montage of Jeffrey’s perfectly set dinner table.
But the best part of Shepherd’s Thanksgiving coverage was the video she posted today of her son enjoying something many people would kill to have—a personal, one-on-one cooking lesson at home with a professional chef. The video showed Jeffrey following instructions from famed chef and TV personality, Carla Hall. His proud mother captioned the video, “Who better to learn the art of cooking than from @carlaphall – Jeffrey is loving cooking our #Thanksgiving meal!”
Shepherd isn’t the only star posting about the holiday—here’s what a couple other celebrities are saying about their own Thanksgiving celebrations:
- Miranda Lambert: Being her first Thanksgiving since splitting from Blake Shelton, Lambert headed home for the holidays. She shared a photo on Instagram of a sweet welcome package from her mom that included a basket of Cheetos and chips, three bottles of wine, flowers, and a handwritten note.
- Chrissy Teigen: She tweeted the menu for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner and it’s insane. According to her web site, Teigen will be preparing as many as 15 dishes, including a glazed ham, sweet potato streusel, fresh cornmeal biscuits, butter-roasted butternut squash, and cheesy corn pudding—this is all on top of the big turkey.
- Demi Lovato: Having recovered herself from an eating disorder, Lovato took to Twitter to share an inspiring message for anyone else who may be dealing with a similar struggle. “For anyone in recovery who gets anxiety about Thanksgiving, just remember… It’s about giving thanks not just the food [sic],” wrote Lovato, adding a heart emoticon and the hashtag, “Staystrong.”
