Rarer than a blue moon and more anticipated than a teen-novel-derived movie (honestly, I thought The Hunger Games was about anorexics), March 25th will mark a monumental converging of two important cultural phenomena. Not only is Sunday the important Swedish holiday Våffeldagen (Waffle Day), but it ushers in the premiere episode of Mad Men's final season. An auspicious omen to be sure.
This week's Called to the Table column explains the relevance of Waffle Day, and I am contemplating ways to work waffles into our Mad Men menu. Waffle-wrapped pigs in blankets, anyone? What about a Waffle-tini?
