Knock-knock. Who’s there? Ross Geller’s lunch. Ross Geller’s lunch, who? Ross Geller’s lunch, please don’t take me. Okay?

When I heard Friends was going to be coming to Netflix in January I just about lost my ish. Do you have any idea what this means? This means I can sit home in the middle of winter doing nothing but watching episode after episode of Friends. Seriously, if you don’t hear from me for awhile send a search party in after me. You will probably find me molded to my couch eating popcorn and drinking bottle after bottle of seltzer water.

I will probably have a few boxes of Nutty Bars too. When binge watching TV one must do it while enjoying their favorite sweet treat.

Well if you haven’t guessed it this sandwich is a big “heeeeeyyyyyyy” to my friends at Friends. This goes back to the episode where Ross goes crazy because his boss stole his favorite leftover sandwich (with moist maker!) from the office refrigerator. Then he couldn’t finish it all and threw it away.

You threw my sandwich away? My sandwich???

If you’re still clueless to what I’m rambling about here is a little help. In the episode Ross’s sister (Monica) makes him his favorite leftover Thanksgiving sandwich. It including all the taste of Thanksgiving in sandwich form. In the middle of the sandwich is a gravy soaked piece of bread he lovingly refers to as the “moist maker”

Fun fact: I hate the word “moist” but when joined with maker I don’t mind it at all. Who knew?

So, put on your fat pants for day two of eating and make yourself a leftover Thanksgiving sandwich with moist maker. Trust me, it will be worth it.

    You and Gina. Both your pictures just make me want to give up on this whole food blogging thing. Then I go look at some other blogs and decide that maybe I can stick around.

    That sandwich is gorgeous and I also love the Gina picture!

    As soon as I saw the title, that whole Friends episode came rushing back to me, especially the scene in the coffee house when Ross is loopy on sedatives and eating cotton candy. Love that picture of Gina!
