Happy Fathers Day to all my favorite dads here on Roadfood. Hoping the day is special for you. Are you guys doing the cooking, or is someone doing it for you???

    Wow, Ann, Neither one of us has any response to our Father's Day menu question. The 5lb lobster I cooked tried to climb out of the pot and almost made it. I've had a few try in the past but this one almost made it!

          Thunderstorms, loss of power for 2 hours, and a long nap made my Father's day just about right. I got calls from 7 of the 8 off-spring. Not bad percentage for a rainy day.

            One daughter and one call and thats all.  I took Mamaw Smith to church and she made me a Angel food cake and ROZ got me a new frying pan to match my set.  Unfortunately, they look to good to use as I have them hung up in the kitchen.

                Ann, was out of town. We were in Wildwood, NJ. Went out to a father's day Salsa dancing brunch at an independent mexican joint called Juan Pablos. Food was fantastic.  I'll being doing a report on the whole trip, once I have a little time to pull it together.
                In the meantime, here's a link http://juanpablos.com

                    I grilled brats, Italian sausages, chicken breasts, and Boca Burgers for a crowd of 10 at my parents' house: Mom & Dad, us & 1 of the kids, my brother & his fiancee, her parents, and her brother.  As of right now I haven't heard of anybody getting sick so I think I'm in the clear.

                      Thanks Ann. It was a great day...took family to a reenactment of the Battle Of Monmouth, and then a nice steak dinner!

                        Wife prepped the marinade and meat for sate' and made the peanut sauce. I did the rice pilaf and spinach with beets Asian salad and grilled the meats. Wife made a calfouti with cherries for dessert. Its a cake with four eggs in it so it has a custard/soufle' flavor and with fresh cherries baked in it was awesome.

                          My dad has been gone for 6 years, but I make it a priority to put a flag on his grave around Memorial Day.  His was truly the greatest generation,raised in the depression,fought in WWII.  I used a photo of him on my facebook account & enjoyed seeing all the other photos of fathers.
                          My four  took their dad out for sushi ,sashimi & saki, just him & his 4 adult kids.  A great time!

                            I miss my Dad, too, even though he has been gone 13 years. I honored him by making one of the ONLY things he ever cooked- a mustard marinated chuck roast on the grill. Turns out like a decent steak...
