Friends Dinner

To celebrate Thanksgiving and utilize our leftovers, we did a Friends Thanksgiving Dinner and watched all 10 of the Thanksgiving episodes.  We actually did this dinner last year and it was so much food and so much Friends that we decided to spread it out over a few days!

For dinner (or dinners) we had The Joey Special (Two Pizzas), Ross's Sandwich with a Moist Maker, Chandler and Monica's Perfect Mac and Cheese, Central Perk Coffee, Rachel's "Feetless" English Trifle, and Phoebe's Grandmother's Cookies

The episodes we watched were the Thanksgiving episodes.  Here is the list: Season 1 Episode 9: The One Where Underdog Gets Away, Season 3 Episode 9: The One with the Football, Season 4 Episode 8: The One with Chandler in a Box, Season 5 Episode 8: The One with the Thanksgiving Flashbacks, Season 5 Episode 9: The One with Ross's Sandwich,  Season 6 Episode 9: The One Where Ross Got High, Season 7 Episode 8: The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs, Season 8 Episode 9: The One with the Rumor, Season 9 Episode 8: The One with Rachel's Other Sister, and lastly, Season 10 Episode 8: The One with the Late Thanksgiving.

The Joey Special (2 Pizzas)
We made two frozen pizzas for the occasion.

Ross's Sandwich with a Moist Maker:
3 Pieces of Wheat Bread
Leftover Stuffing
Leftover Gravy
Leftover Turkey
Leftover Cranberries

Assemble to your liking the middle piece of bread should be soaked up in gravy (creating a moist maker)

*It doesn't look special but let me tell you, we've been waiting for a repeat of this sandwich for a whole year!!

Chandler and Monica's Perfect Mac and Cheese
16 oz package of shell pasta
1/4 cup of butter
1/4 cup of flour
2.5 cups of milk
6 slices of cheddar cheese
8oz of Sharp White Cheddar
1 tablespoon of Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon of kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon of hot sauce

It's the same recipe I used for the Little Mermaid Dinner!

1. Prepare pasta according to the box
2. Melt butter over low heat.  Once melted, whisk in the flour and cook for one minutes
3. Whisk in milk and cook on medium heat until mixture thickens and begins to bubble.
4. Reduce heat and stir in cheeses, mustard, salt, and hot sauce.
5. Stir in pasta and serve
