Middie, I'll be sure to send some hugs your way on Sunday.

This is DH's first Father's Day. He says he wants it to be a normal quiet day (he's not much into big celebrations). I'm thinking a nice breakfast (stuffed chocolate french toast maybe) and dinner of his choice, if he gives me some ideas before Sunday. If I threaten him with something vegetarian, I'm sure he'll come up with some suggestions fast!

{{{{{Middie}}}}

We have nothing special planned for Father's Day because on Saturday night we will all be together for a big party in celebration of my grandson's graduation. So Sunday will be a day to relax, rest and give thanks for our many blessings..

We don't do anything. DH doesn't talk to his dad very much and mine died when I was 7, so, it's up to DH what he wants to do. Probably go fishing.

And where is the french toast recipe, did you say? Please post it! Sounds just up my alley!

Both of my sons have to work - and my daughter will be tied up with bowing down to the AH she is married to. So, I'll go out to the cemetary and clean off Dad's grave ... then probably cook a nice steak and baked tater dinner for myself later on .... and watch a baseball game or two.

you crack me up bucky!
Dutch babies are like an oven pancake. While it's baking it should look like a pancake bowl. I've never made this but my dad fixed it for us when I was a kid. We filled it with lots of fresh fruit and whipped cream. Here's a link about dutch babes and great photos of the stages! If mine turns out, I'll post the recipe & photos of mine. http://orangette.blogspot.com/2005/0...nd-babies.html

My father passed away years ago. My step-father doesn't live near me, so I'll have to go get a card and send it, then try to call him.

As for me, well, I have to work, pretty much all day. Bummer.

Dutch babies... oh boy. I know just the pan for them. I've never heard of them before, but we will definitely be trying those this weekend.
