Cooking Adventure: Ross's "Moist Maker" Turkey Sandwich from FRIENDS

Happy Day-After-Thanksgiving and Black Friday!

In honor of the unofficial Eating Leftovers Day, I decided to make Ross's "Moist Maker" Turkey Sandwich from FRIENDS! According to Ross, the secret to Monica's turkey sandwiches is an extra slice of gravy-soaked bread in the middle, which he called the "Moist Maker."

He didn't specify what else was in the sandwich so it's pretty much up to your own creative license. I used Food Wishes' cranbango (cranberry mango) sauce (though I omitted the spices), shredded turkey breast, the Moist Maker, and cornbread chestnut dressing between two slices of Country White bread.

I liked the taste of the sandwich with the cranbango sauce, but thought this version was too carb heavy. Two slices of bread plus the Moist Maker AND dressing was overkill. I should've thrown in some romaine lettuce and smoked gouda to change up the flavors and texture. Oh, well... live and learn!

The most memorable thing about this sandwich was seeing Ross freak out when someone at work ate his sandwich. Hilarious! If you'd like to see Ross's "MY sandwich" clip, check it out below.

Until the next adventure...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Food Truck

It's not everyday you get to eat the food of video games... made by the creators of the game... for free. So in honor of today's release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I present to you: The Skyrim Food Truck!

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Food Truck
To promote the game, the creators offered a sampling of Skyrim's delicacies: Dragon Leg (Turkey Leg), Whiterun Corn (Corn on the Cob), and Solitude Sweetroll (Roll).

And here's what it looked like!
Skyrim Food: Dragon Leg, Whiterun Corn, and Solitude Sweetroll
To be honest, the food wasn't all that interesting. It was actually quite bland, but I will admit, free food is a very effective promotional tool. I, personally, have never played any games from The Elder Scrolls series, but the food truck got me looking into the game and talking to my friends about it.
Skyrim Drink Cozy, Box, and Magnetic Bottle Opener
Along with the free food, promoters also passed out drink cozies and magnetic bottle openers. I was actually most impressed by the custom take-out box. Who needs a happy face telling you to "Have a Good Day!" when you can have your game title there?
Skyrim Napkin
They also had custom napkins but they weren't nearly as impressive as the box.

As I sat there eating away at the "Dragon Leg," I couldn't help wondering... Why can't more video game promotions be like this!?  I mean - who wouldn't want to take a bite out of a 1-UP Mushroom or taste how spicy the Superspicy Curry really is? And just imagine the possibilities with a game like Cooking Mama! The Skyrim creators were definitely onto something. Prior to seeing the food truck, I didn't even know The Elder Scrolls existed. But look at me now! Here I am blogging about it!
