Pops is Tops!

It is the time of year to honour our dads, step-dads, fathers of our children, and even men who are like fathers to us. It is easy to take them for granted, they are always in the background, taking care of things, mowing the lawn and doing other important dad things. Some of us have lost our fathers along the way but that is all the more reason to pay tribute to him on Father's Day. And what better way to honour your Pops than with food?

Jamie Oliver is a great dad who loves his children and also loves good food. Two excellent qualities in a man!

Choose a Jamie Oliver dish from one of his books or online, something for that special Dad in your life. Post it on or by Sunday, June 19th and link up with Mr. Linky, below.

What will you make for your top pops? Steak on the grill? Mac and cheese? Beer-battered fish and chips.. with beer? Show Pops he's tops!

Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.
