Father's Day Dinner, June 19th

Is everyone serving up Dad's favorite?

I'm having a Sunday Dinner of chef's salad; penne rigati with grandma's sauce; Italian sausages; beef, turkey, and pork meatballs; fresh baked Italian bread; and a 2009 Cantine di Oro Barbera d' Asti

I was lucky, just made a fry up for breakfast and hubby fired up the grill for dinner!

Snip, I am interested - what is your version of a fry up? Does it include eggs, meat and potatoes as it would here?

I am going to have lunch with my Dad - he'll have what they serve and I am taking a salad and fruit for me. I am also taking him some (no sugar added) Purdy's chocolate and a (sugar filled) small hot fudge sundae from DQ. Hey, it's Father's Day! I know Princess Fiona will be proud of me!

For dinner my sister is going up to be with him and DH is at work so I am on my own. I am suffering from a serious asthma attack (four hours in the ER for treatment last night which helped a lot) so cooking is a chore but eating seems to make me feel better. I think I will either take out one of the frozen dinners I make for DH's work meals or better yet order a double mushroom double cheese pizza from around the corner. Not part of my diet plan but I am sick and need nourishment. (That's my story and I am sticking to it!)

I could really go for some grilled shrimp enchiladas with molé, but I don't have any large shrimp. That puts that idea in a holding pattern until I decide if I want to make a shrimp run all the way into the city, or see what the town store might have, which will probably only be precooked shrimp...
So I guess undecided would be my answer.

Lunch was pretzels and melon.

Fried eggs, bacon, pork sausages, fried tomatoes, hashbrowns and toast. Love having tabasco and w/sauce and some HP sauce alongside :)

Pac, how's about I bring the shrimp and you do the cooking?

We took DH to an Asian buffet after church. That satisfied him for Father's Day. I'll be making chicken fried steak, mashed taters and green beans for supper as requested by DS who will be headed back to UVA for the summer next week.

That'll work just perfect!

If the neighbors say anything I'll just say they are my Canadian cousins.

I mean neighbours
