Sunday, we spent Father's Day at home.  We finally had a day w/out having a schedule and that is always a treat for us.  In the morning everyone pitched in and did a few chores and by mid-day, my husband got to relax and watch the NBA finals....Heat versus Thunder  (go Thunder!). 
As every Father's Day and his birthday, my husband always requests for steak
Seasoned beef ready for the grill!

and grilled veggies
Gettin' ready the veggies
so that was a given for his Father's Day menu.  My daughter pitched in with her Chicken Lo Mein (for recipe click here).  

We opted to leave the chicken out of the noodle dish and make it more of a vegetable dish so we added more veggies instead.  She substituted the angle hair pasta and used spaghetti instead since that's what we had on hand.  My son purchased a bunch of apples from the local wholesale store so he pitched in with the Apple Crisp (for recipe, click here) dessert. 
Fresh Apple Crisp with brown sugar/oatmeal topping

A scoop of macadamia nut ice cream topped with whipped cream on the warm apple crisp was the icing on the cake for the evening.

Hope you had an enjoyable Father's Day.  There are those who do the double duty as a single parent 365/24/7, and there are those who cares for children as if they were their very own.  Some of us were blessed to have fathers from the day we were born and care for us in every way all parents should, and for that I am extremely grateful.  In anycase I hope everyone had a chance to experience a real dad, even if it was only for a little time.

Did you have a special menu for that special dad today?
