What's Cooking For Father's Day?

Going to my BIL's house - he is grilling steaks and chicken. I'm going to take my cilantro/lime potato salad and maybe something else - can't decide right now.

Oh, and I think I'm going to use purple potatoes this time.

I'm making Prime Rib, slow cooked green beans with bacon, and mashed potatoes. It will be one special fathers day. Total amount of people will be about 7-8 people.

They will prepare Crawfish Stew. Actually a type of Crawfish Bisque simplified somewhat.

(Under the careful and watchful eye of Master Chef Uncle Bob of course)

well my dad is leaving for business in seatle on saturday morning, then visting family. he'll be gone for a week or so so we may celebrate father's day the following Saturday/Sunday or we may surprise him later this week. I'm thinking that the 1st one will be our plan of action seeing as exams are still going on and there's not to much time to plan.
so in short...i don't know what I'll make!

i'm beginning my vacation!!!! yay!!!!!!

i have to get yard work done very badly, so i'll probably stay home, work, and grill.

legs' filet mignon has me thinking, and i know dw and the boy would love lobster, so it may be surf and turf.

lol, ever since we won a hermit crab down the shore a few weeks ago, my son keeps saying he wants to eat lobster and clammies, even begging us go out to eat in red lobster last week. (it was edible, but way too salty).

President Calvin Coolidge, in 1924, supported the idea of a national Father's Day. Then in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day. President Richard Nixon signed the law which finally made it permanent in 1972.

Enjoy!!

We are having both of the dads over for a grill-out on Sunday. I'm grilling fat ribeyes, asparagus on the gril, roased red potatoes, Caesar salad and a mud pie for dessert. Probably a veggie platter with dip for an appetizer.

I have to go to the Farmers Market, the regular grocery and Sam's Club today to get everything I need - lots to do today!

We finally decided on what DH would like with the help of Ethan,Carson and Cade...
snacks toasted,rubbed with evoo baguette, then topped with some gorgonzola,melt the cheese and drizzle with honey and a light sprinkle of toasted walnuts chopped fine, platter of shrimp with cocktail sauce..Rice torta..and a few stuffed onions.
Marinated then grilled tri-tips, garlic mashed potatoes, corn on the cob grilled with butter,salt and pepper and chopped thyme, and salads, potatoes with the usual in it but Im adding some vinegar and mustard to the mayo, plus, before adding the dressing I am going to add a little evoo to the potatoes, I find I don't have to use as much mayo that way..Then as DH love a good crab louie, I'm taking a large platter and filling the center with chopped romaine, then I plan to circle the lettuce with slices of avocado, wedges of tomatoes,halves of hard cooked eggs,slices of lemon,cucumber black olives and top the whole thing with a homemade louie dressing, slices of watermelon,tuscan melon, bunches of green and red grapes plus some strawberries on a platter.Of course we will have grilled garlic,parmesan bread..Dessert, will be an ice cream cake I ordered to celebrate our son's birthday.

Happy Fathers Day to our DC dad's, have a wonderful day.
