Who remembers the "Friends" Thanksgiving episode when Rachel accidentally combines 2 recipes ending up with an English Trifle with beef? Even though Joey loved it, I find a pure English Trifle, with out the beef, the way to go!!! What is driving all of this English Trifle talk? The "Friends" reunion airs this Sunday, February 21 and what better way to celebrate as you watch then to celebrate with an English Trifle!
