Mad About Mad Men
Sunday night marked the finale of the third season of Mad Men on AMC. Our friends, Mike and Erin, joined us to say so-long to one of our favorite series... well, just until next summer! We had dinner plans, so drinks and dessert were on the docket for the night.
Event: Mad Men Finale
Apple Pie with Cheddar Cheese Crust
Gin Martinis and Cigarettes
Beer and Bailey's (Not together)
Mike and Erin brought an amazing apple pie from Central Market. And thin slices of cheddar cheese to melt on top. We reheated it in the oven with the cheese draped over the top of the crust; it was warm, sweet, crumbly and slight salty. Just perfection! Thanks, guys!
(Note: The pic above is from marthastewart.com... I neglected to take pics of M&E's yummy pie! But here's her recipe for it: Apple Pie with Cheddar Crust. Also, Mike said that he had it first at The Frisco.)
We got out all the makings for martinis and our Lucky Strikes, then decided that we weren't brave enough to face Monday morning with a cloud of gin over our heads... and we were out of Lucky Strikes, 'cus we don't smoke. (Don Draper and Roger Sterling are shaking their heads in utter disdain.)
So the guys downed a few 2 Belows from The New Belgium Brewery and the ladies sipped Bailey's on ice.
We're looking forward to next season's premiere- Salisbury steak and Jello mold, anyone?!
