"Make This Father's Day Special".
I conducted an informal poll to find out what Dads really want for Father's Day, and the results are in. Click on the link for ideas for gifts, celebrations, and outings...as well as some cute quotes about fatherhood.
Oh, and just to get you revved up for a special theme next week here at This Mom Loves, here's a Father's Day gift idea for your consideration:
Canada Grills! (recipes compiled and edited by Lisa Kahn)
I received a review copy of this book, which boasts incredibly mouth-watering colour photos of fresh-of-the-grill food (225 recipes in all). I could even put a meal together for myself with items from every category:
Appetizers: Smokin' Soon's Hobo Potato Skins, Patio Daddio BBQ's Pulled-Pork Pastries (2 ingredients)
Meat: CB's Slow-Grilled Rib Eyes, Grilled Stuffed Chicken Breasts With Artichokes and Italian Cheeses - hold the artichokes (The book actually divides main dishes into separate sections for Beef, Pork, Lamb and Game, Poultry, and Seafood)
Sides: CB's Smoky, Cheesy Cornbread, Better-Than-Mom's Mac and Cheese
Desserts (yes, for the grill!): CB's Nutella and Marshmallow Quesadillas, Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies (not so sure about the bacon part...is that kind of weird?)
If you think the names even sound delicious, wait until you see these photos! As I write this, I am trying to cut back on eating unnecessarily in the evenings, and looking at these juicy dishes is not helping! I wonder what we have up in the fridge...
Anyway, silly me, when the box from the publishing company arrived I opened it right up in front of my husband...so it's too late to try to make this his Father's Day gift! But heck, if it in any way contributes to him grilling more and me cooking less, then we know who the gift is really for, don't we?
