Fathers Day Dinner

June 21, 2010

This year was the first Fathers Day that I can remember where my dad actually did what he loves to do. Play golf the entire day!  Luckily for him, he has lots of women around that love to cook. When the boys were all done with their round of golf, they were greeted with a mouth-watering dinner prepared in honor of our Dad’s. This menu would work beautifully for any potluck, BBQ or simple gathering since most of it can be prepared ahead of time; we just happened to piece it together for this special day. Below is a recap of what was prepared, click on the links for all the delicious recipes. Enjoy!
