See the box on the left? Imagine a dozen similar containers, all stored in a couple or three deep freezers in the basement.
So, I’m going to eat well, and the fact that it’s not in my honor and that I will only minimally help in the preparation (by maybe setting the table or putting ice in the water) doesn’t bother me in the least.
Since I have no food prep responsibilities, I thought I should use the time to come up with some good ideas for subsequent Father’s Days, and by “come up with,” I mean, “steal from others.”
So, going ’round the horn … some stuff I think dads might like:
Coffee-marinated Pork from the Greasy Skillet
Coffee-brushed BBQ Ribs from A Spicy Perspective.
Grilled Shrimp with Lime, Cilantro, and Peanuts from The Arugula Files
Burger ideas from Mark Bittman and Whole Foods
Capreses Burger from My Kitchen in the Rockies
Tuna with spicy green sauce from My Little Expat Kitchen
A wedge salad with thousand island dressing from One Perfect Bite
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes from the Big Red Kitchen
What are you making for Father’s Day?
PS. Happy Bloomsday!
