This is the menu for Father’s Day, except I substituted the asparagus with green beans!
But let’s rewind. Let me begin by telling you that we spent the weekend with my parents. It was a nice little getaway. It was a totally relaxing Eat-a-thon. What else is new?
On Friday, we quickly busted into my Dad’s Father’s Day gift the second we arrived. My Dad, Casey & I LOOOVED the Piccante & the Sopressata best! My dad was HOOKED. I think I heard him tell my Mom at least three times that she needs to pick some up when she goes grocery shopping next. Creminelli. Do it.
We went out to dinner Friday night. I saw this on the ground. I laughed.
Casey worked late. Cooper said hello to a cop. My dad & I drank beers and we all had pizza.
I was stuffed. I think it’s because of the beer. Not because I ate half a pizza. Pizza NEVER makes me feel full.
Woke up Saturday morning & hung with my mom while she worked on her crossword puzzle.
Had coffee in one of my favorite mugs from my childhood.
Found this in the box of crayons Cooper was playing with. That’s so my brother.
Here’s Cooper drinking out of a cup. He didn’t even put his hand in it ONCE. Proud of him!
I made a new game. It was totally effective.
My mom & I went shopping. I bought these awesome shoes that were on SALE!
Then we sat outside and drank wine. Here’s the aftermath.
I made pie crust with unsalted butter. Still not convinced, Joy.
Then Casey & I had date night in Sausalito at Le Garage Bistro. My dad gave us a bottle of wine!
We had the best bread. EVER EVER EVER!!! Too bad we ordered food.
Crab stuffed squash blossoms with some tomatoes & pesto. Hello!! Delicious.
A lobster, corn, peach, tarragon & butter lettuce salad. Tasted like summer!
We saw the sunset. We also saw a boat named the Offshore Whore. That was awesome.
I order mussels & fries because I simply COULD NOT RESIST. Casey had duck. I totally called that one.
And we finished the night with a Strawberry Rhubarb Tart with creme fraiche. It’s fun being adults.
This morning I made a charred corn salad for our Father’s Day Lunch/Dinner.
I felt like my grandma, sitting down while chopping. It’s weird using a knife while sitting down. No like.
This is the reason why I skipped dinner tonight. Blueberry & Peach Galette!
I made ribs, green bean salad, charred corn salad & garlic bread (on the grill!) for dinner.
That charred corn salad was AWESOME. I’ll post the recipe soon!
Zinfandel goes soo well with ribs. My dad hooks us up YET AGAIN.
And we dove right into that galette with some whipped cream for dessert.
I was able to catch a few sweet moments with my phone. Here’s Casey & Cooper reading a book.
And here’s my dad walking with Cooper. <3
Happy Father’s Day to Casey & my Dad! You two are the greatest.
