flaming cheese

Don Draper, Peggy Olson, Pete Campbell, Joan Harris, Roger Sterling. If those names sound familiar to you, it's because you (like us) are a fan of the show, Mad Men.

Every Sunday since the new season started, we've gathered at the Gardiner home for a double date viewing party.  Melanie prepares the best snacks and AMC brings the drama.  The first couple of episodes were fairly dull, but things are heating up.  If you watch the show, you know.  I most appreciate the linear series of events, unlike our seven year run with Lost.

Last week, Mike spent the afternoon celebrating Greek Orthodox Easter with his family.  Which meant tasty Greek treats for our evening together, including saganaki (aka "flaming cheese").  Brandy ignited the flames and lemon juice calmed the fire.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

What a spread!  I highly recommend lighting your cheese on fire, pairing strawberries with feta, and watching the creative stylings of ad men in the 1960s (just fast forward through the racy stuff).
