TV Dinners: Mad Men 3 anyone?

From Epicurious.com comes such a great idea - TV dinners to coordinate with your favorite TV shows. I don't care about Lost, CSI, Gossip Girls or the Office (only sometimes) - but Mad Men - it's my FAVORITE!

Season 3 is set to air this summer (although the date is a little hazy at this time) with encore presentations of the smokin' hot end of season 2 throughout the build-up. Not familiar with this must-see show? Check out some trailers on AMC's site for a peak.

For your Mad Men TV Dinner Party

Menu from epicurious.com

Find the perfect 60's Cocktail:
Jackie O
Vodka Martini
Emma Peel

Looking for the perfect table setting? Check your local Target for some killer Orla Kiely retro inspired home goods. check out the original posting on Apartment Therapy for some great photos like this one. I found that my Target had the goods - but moved it to the back storage room because there wasn't enough to fill the endcap. All I had to do was ask a nice red-shirt and I got my table cloth plus some really cool serving dishes.

So - it looks like i'm all set for my Mad Men party. I can't wait!

This looks like so much fun! I have to see this show, this is the second time I'm hearing about it, but I don't think it's in the uk yet.

This is one mad Mad Men menu! Now, have two glasses of Jackie O vodka martini and say it again really fast! 8-)

That menu sounds right up my alley. I haven't seen the show - but I am all about dinner.
