Happy Father’s Day Weekend Special

Susie_Dad_Muir_Woods_11_2016_01Oh my goodness! It’s going to be a picture perfect weekend for Dad. Whether he is a golfer, a cyclist or a fisherman, he can enjoy his favorite sport in the sunshine. If you’re lucky, he’ll invite you to join him! At the end of the day, ask him over for a delicious Father’s Day feast.

Not sure what to cook for the old man, here are a few ideas:

How to start? If you’d like to go a little bit fancy but not over the top, pass my Artichoke Leaves with Shrimp or Savory Parmesan Shortbread with Tomato Jam. Add a few nuts and olives and call the appetizers done.

Now, what’s for dinner? I found local asparagus at the farm stand this morning. Assuming the all too short season is not over, start dinner with my favorite Mixed Greens with Grilled Asparagus, Cucumber & Avocado. The combinations of flavors and textures are fabulous. If your dad is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, you can’t go wrong with my Grilled Filet Mignons & Mushrooms with Stilton Butter and a side of Grilled Red Potatoes or Grilled Potato Salad.

So what about dessert? Does your dad have a favorite? I’m still up in the air but I’m leaning towards a Blueberry Pie or Chocolate-Peanut Butter Tart. Both are winners.

Have a great weekend and bon appétit!

How will you celebrate Father’s Day this weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
