Hands-off MY sandwich

by Khushboo on November 5, 2011

I’m going to sound like a 90-year old reminiscing on ‘the good ol’ days’ but it has to be said: “They don’t make TV like they used to”.  Sex and the City and FRIENDS undoubtedly raised the bar, but the idea of watching TV just doesn’t appeal to me as much as before.  With the exception of Modern Family & Desperate Housewives, there aren’t many shows which I am dying to catch up with on the new season.

Although that correlation may also do with the fact that TV in Mumbai is pretty terrible.  MasterChef and Kaun Banega Crorepati  (i.e. = Who Wants to Be a Millionaire)  seem to be favorites here and if you’re not a fan of either, you’re pretty much doomed…or well-stocked with DVDs.  One thing I can, however, count on from TV here is its loyalty to FRIENDS.  Seven years later and the reruns are still in full form, and for that I am extremely grateful. That is one show which will never, ever get old.  Don’t even ask me who my favorite character is because I won’t be able to decide and as for my favorite episode, way too many come to mind such as:

The One With Ross’s Sandwich

“You took my sandwich…MY sandwich”…hahaha CLASSIC

I guess I would’ve shared Ross’s sentiments too if that happened to the sandwich I had for lunch last week…even though it did lack any ‘Moist-Maker’:

“Thanksgiving Came Early” Sandwich:

*Ideal if you like the combination of sweet and savoury*

Ingredients:

  • Cream Cheese
  • Strawberry jam/fruit preserves
  • Turkey
  • Lettuce
  • Rye bread/ whatever you prefer

…and because Thanksgiving is never complete without pie, I had no choice but to snack on one of these babies later on:

Make me laugh: What’s one of your top FRIENDS lines?

I haven’t tried the gingerbread flavor although my aversion to ginger makes me very hesitant :) !

Nak’d bars are the UK-equivalent of LaraBars- so yum!

Completely agree – TV these days is utter crap but I do love Modern Family! (And DH, but I’ve yet to catch up on this season.) Friends has got to be one of the best shows of all time. Whenever it was on TV last year my housemates would moan at me to change the channel but I never get sick of it.

Top friends line is a tough one but one of my all time favourites is the one with the holiday armadillo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCowrXGwdjs

I could not choose a favorite line from friends! I have to agree with you, TV is pretty terrible lately. I still haven’t seen modern family though! I’ve heard it’s good, so I’ll have to check it out.

I’ve never tried the turkey + jam combo but I bet I’d like it! I love the egg + jam combo…but you already know that :-)

Khushboo Thadani November 7, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Yes! It takes the egg, cheese, and jam combo to the next level!

DUUUUDE Khushboo, I just posted a post about sandwiches too! Great minds think a like (and enjoy stuffing between carbs). Gotta say though that that sandwich looks beyond the realm of glory.
I really need to re-brush on my Friends; it’s been at least a few years since I’ve re-watched!

Khushboo Thadani November 7, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Great minds indeed! It’s all about the carbs, the bread makes all he difference!

I can imagine turkey and jam being a great combo since I <3 turkey and cranberry sauce. You've got me craving a turkey sandwich – must remember to go pick some up for the deli today. My new favorite combo is tofu, pb and siracha. So delicious!

Tofu + pb is my fave veg sandwich…always hits the spot!

Underwhelming- haha love that word!

Friends was the most fabulous show! Perfect for 30 minutes of entertainment. And I had the biggest crush on Ross!

Reply

Khushboo Thadani November 7, 2011 at 12:11 pm

Ross, really? I always found him so greasy..I’m a sucker for guys with humor so Chandler was my favorite!

Parita @ myinnershakti November 7, 2011 at 5:59 pm

I was a huge Ross fan too! I like nerdy guys though. :)

oh my gosh choosing a fav line from Friends is far too difficult! I watch an episode every night before I go to bed…haha – but one of my fav episodes is when they try to move the couch in the stairwell yelling ‘PIVOT!’ I laugh just thinking about it.

Khushboo Thadani November 7, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Hahah I have that whole scene playing out in my head right now!
