Dining with Dad!

It's that time of year again, your mailbox is stuffed with hardware store sales catalogues, and you have to desperately search your mind to remember if your father/husband/step-father/grandfather/boyfriend.. has a multi-piece socket set or not. Or an angle grinder. Or a mouse sander. In case any mice need sanding.
But we want to do something special for the Pater Familias and what better way to celebrate the man of the family than with food?

For the Dad in your life; your own father, father figure or father of your children - find a Mark Bittman recipe that he will love and cook it up in his honour. Post it to your blog on or by June 20th and link up with Mr. Linky, below.

Some of us may be honouring fathers past, and remembering the great Father's Days we have spent together and all the fabulous ways we spoiled him. Like with great ties and hand-made cards. How come we don't make anything with macaroni anymore? We were really good at that.

Make and post your Dining with Dad recipe by Sunday, June 20th. Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky , below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous creation! 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.

Giovanna said...

I looked at that first picture for a while, the linens are all clean, the dad's in a suit, the mom's in a dress with full hair and makeup.....
my dinner table is sooooo not like that. Pushing, shoving, a baby crying, daddy never wears a suit and my hair and makeup would make a stylist scream! Ha - great post, had fun making this one with the kids : )

Joanna said...

Finally an easy one! :) I didn't hesitate in choosing a recipe for once! You wouldn't wither if you knew my daddio.
