the ultimate food high
Every great, long-lasting TV show has its holiday episodes. One of my favorites, Friends, sure had its share. In addition to learning a thing or two about being dysfunctional in our 20s over its 10-season run, we picked up a recipe for the most scrumptious, perfectly crafted Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich, courtesy of Monica, season 5, episode 9 (for the record, I had to look up the exact season and episode…I’m not that much of a nerd. But props to anyone that did know them by heart—you’re awesome). Now, Monica may have created The Moist Maker, as it’s called, but the episode is named “The One With Ross’s Sandwich” because of Ross’s infatuation with his beloved sandwich.
The Moist Maker is basically your entire Thanksgiving dinner in one sandwich. Think you need a nap after Thanksgiving dinner? See how you feel after eating this sandwich!
This is going to be a lot of food, so I suggest eating part of it and putting the rest in the fridge. The Moist Maker will only continue to, well, moisten—so when you go to finish the rest later, the sandwich will be just as great as the first time. If you do put it in the fridge, make sure to label it so EVERYONE knows it’s your sandwich.
