Tagged ‘Father’s Day’
So this Sunday is Father’s Day, and not to be a downer, but I will be almost 1,500 miles away from my father. While the journey through young adulthood– learning how to live on my own and be a real, bill-paying, morning-commuting person– is exciting, there’s always a little piece inside every girl that just wants to curl up into her dad’s bear hug. So while I am sending my long distance Father’s Day wishes (and if you are reading this, Dad, a pretty good surprise gift in the mail!), I hope that all of you who are as lucky as me to have a special Dad in your lives, or better yet be with him this Sunday, appreciate what you’ve got.
What are other bloggers cooking up in honor of their dads this Father’s Day? I’ve looked into it, and here are my favorites of what I’ve seen!
Breakfast: Homesick Texan
Brunch isn’t just for Mother’s Day you know! Let your dad enjoy breakfast in bed this Sunday with a French Toast Casserole, complete with blueberries and sausage, from Lisa at Homesick Texan.
Three things my dad loves? Garlic, steak, and shrimp cocktails. He’ll order some combination of the three of those just about every time we go out to eat. But this Sunday is Father’s Day, and why go out when you can let him relax on the couch or deck and grill up something yourself in his honor? It’s the middle of June and there is no better time to whip out that gas grill. Start off his Father’s Day feast with a Grilled Shrimp Cocktail, excite him even more with a Garlic-Studded London Broil, and finish it off with some sweet Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Calzones—after all, you’ve got to remind him you’re still his little kid!
