Keeping with that rhythm, I decided to use meat loaf, with all the trimmings; mashed potatoes, sugar snap peas, apple pie a la mode, rum punch and martinis, as the featured dish at my Mad Men premiere TV-dinner party.
In true Tyme2Eat fashion, this meal was budget friendly, and quick and easy to prepare. While watching the show in the living room, we ate off paper plates, as to honor the TV-dinner theme and save myself some dish washing. I played the Mad Men soundtrack before the show and during “intermission,” and some of my guest came dressed in era appropriate attire which added a sexy-chic atmosphere to the party. It was a successful soiree that didn’t take a lot of effort to put together.
If you didn’t throw a premiere party, do not fret. There’s a full season of Mad Men ahead of us. So go ahead and host your own throwback 60s TV-dinner party, for the sake of the show, or just for the heck of it.
