Weekend Special – Celebrate with Dad at a Steak Cookout!

Sunday is Father’s Day! Since this holiday is frequently neglected, why not make this year a special one for dad. Young and old, have some fun family time with dad. Get the family together and break out your old mitt, find a softball and bat. Or unearth that old Frisbee, reserve a golf time, plan a hike or organize a family tennis round-robin. And when you’re done playing? Enjoy a wonderful family feast!

How to start? Enjoy an ice cold beer or a glass of wine and nibble a chip or two with my Simply Delicious Salsa, Guacamole,or better yet, both. Don’t forget to put out a few raw veggies to dip for a lighter, brighter bite.

On to the main event: How about a manly cookout? What dad doesn’t like a good steak? Not mine, that’s for sure. Serve him up a Spicy Grilled Steak. Make it a little special with some my Grilled Corn & Black Bean Salsa. Or try my dad’s favorite, Grilled Steak with Gorgonzola Sauce. Grill up a few potatoes and some asparagus while you are at it. Complete the meal with a big garden salad tossed with a Classic Vinaigrette.

And something sweet? My dad is a fan of both blueberries and chocolate. It makes it a bit difficult to decide what sweet treat to whip up for his Father’s Day celebration. I could go with Blueberry Crumb Cake or maybe Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting? Luckily, I still have a day or two to figure it out!

Have fun with your dad and enjoy the weekend! Bon appétit!

  1. This is a special time, agreed! Love your suggestions for a great day with dad. Must try that spicy steak rub with my papa! We’ve been growing fresh veggies in our garden and they’d make a perfect side dish.


    • Many thanks! My dad is recovering from surgery so I’m thinking cocktails on the beach and then a cookout. Hopefully next year will be more active. I love grilled veggies! have a great day with your dad – Susan
