FRIENDS INSPIRED THANKSGIVING TURKEY SANDWICH RECIPE
Welcome to my Friends inspired Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich recipe.
I was an 80’s baby and this means that all of my teenage years were in the 1990’s. It was a time when processed foods was all that we ate, when boy bands were the music of choice and Friends was the main TV show that we all watched.
Like many Brits though we had never been to America and watching it was an education in itself. It was the first time we have ever heard of Thanksgiving, egg plants, zucchini, egg nogg and a whole range of other things.
We have of course being to America since and tried lots of other firsts while we have been there, but Friends gave us that first education when it started when we were 12. We would all watch it back to back and once we started watching it we couldn’t stop.
If anything the one thing that caught my attention the most was Thanksgiving. The fact that the Americans have two big turkeys a year instead of the one! We were also amazed by how much food was consumed but we fell in love with the idea of it.
Though, I should mention that I do have American family, so I should have known a lot more!
Over the years we have started a yearly tradition of enjoying Thanksgiving ourselves. We will have a turkey roast dinner with lots of side dishes and from a frugal point of view we love the idea that because we don’t eat that much that we will have a mass of leftovers to enjoy over the coming weeks.
