Father's Day Dinner

I should probably make this a poll and see how many Dad's are getting steak tonight. Ken has asked for steak and I bought crab legs to go with. I'll likely make him a committee salad and do up some baked spuds too. Dessert was undecided until a little while ago. Bugs is considering an Italian Dream Cream cake and I'm considering using up the leftover crepes in a crepe cake. One of those will be dessert.

What did the Dad's in your life request? Or do you do a dinner out?

No steak here. I like steak ok, but it's not my "to die for" meal.

Daughter is working, so it's just me and DW. I thought we'd do some burgers on the grill and just enjoy the sunny day we've been graced with.

Sun is still trying to break through the clouds here, I'm glad you have a sunny day. Enjoy your day Steve!

SO announced the other day that she was going to let me cook myself a steak dinner with baked potato for Father's Day. I put my foot down and insisted on mashed potato and a salad to go with the steak. Sweetheart that she is, she agreed. I'll bake one potato for her and mash the other for me. I have a couple of choice ribeyes defrosting.

Hmmm, she didn't mention dessert.

Lemon bars?

Hope those ribeyes are succulent and delicious Andy.

So far, we've only settled on Vinegar Brined Baby Back Ribs. The sides are to be determined, but I have a feeling corn-on-the-cob will be part of the equation. I'm about to put together a coconut pie for dessert.

Today's purposely shaping up to be a nice, relaxing day.

Thanks, Alix. I'm sure Ken's dinner will be great!

He requested that I go in for a BBQ that the assisted living apartment place he lives at was having, but as usual his/their schedule and mine conflicted.
It's holidays like this that I wonder why my sister doesn't plan something at her house.

That would make it easier. Are you going to be able to see your dad on a different day?
