I've been watching Mad Men. It took a long time to get into the show--- a good 9 episodes into the first season before I really started looking forward to the next show. It would be on in the background, and I'd half-watch -- instead I was mostly folding laundry or goofing around on the internet. And then I got completely hooked.
Betty would make this chicken. And Don and her kids would eat it, and then lick the plate. She might just sit and watch though (and drink. she drinks a lot...) because she knows how she made it. Although the ingredients work and the chicken tastes amazing, and her kids and husband are clamoring for more, she just smiles that slightly impish smile and sits back to watch.
