Thanksgiving Friends’ Episodes
I love all 10 of the Friend’s Thanksgiving episodes, but I’m especially fond of the foods served in The One Where Underdog Gets Away (Season 1) and The One Where Ross Got High (Season 6).
The One Where Underdog Gets Away
Episode 9, Season 1
Plot – In the very first of the Friends’ Thanksgiving episodes, Monica cooks the gang a Thanksgiving meal because the Geller’s are out of town, Joey’s family is embarrassed over his venereal disease advertisements, and Rachel can’t get to Vail for her family’s skiing trip.
On the Menu – This classic Thanksgiving meal features three kinds of mashed potatoes (mashed potatoes with lumps for Ross, tater tots for Joey, and whipped potatoes with peas and onions for Phoebe. Everyone shares Chandler’s traditional Thanksgiving dinner (tomato soup, grilled cheese and Funyuns) when they are locked out of the apartment and Monica’s feast burns.
The One Where Ross Got High
Episode 9, Season 6
Plot – Too many secrets are revealed to the Geller parents in this classic episode. Rachel wants more responsibility and takes over dessert with disastrous results (she accidentally combines the ingredients for a traditional English trifle with Shepherd’s pie).
On the Menu – Traditional Thanksgiving fixings followed by Rachel’s infamous English Trifle: a layer of ladyfingers, a layer of jam, custard (made from scratch), raspberries, more ladyfingers, beef sautéed with peas and onions, a little more custard, sliced bananas, and whipped cream. (I love this dessert so much I made a version you can use to fool your freinds and actually eat… the “beef” is chocolate! Get the recipe.)
