steak with chimichurri

Mother's Day bring brunch and breakfast in bed.  Father's day usually means BBQ often with Dad doing all the work.  That's okay, cause I think he likes it as long as he is only in charge of the meat.  Here is a menu that will let the Dad's enjoy the grilling and the meat and  everyone else enjoy the celebration.

pina colada smoothie

Pina Colada

Start out with some refreshing Pina Colada.  This recipe is without alcohol, so you can just add Rum to those that want to be a little more relaxed.

hot dog toppings bar

Create a Hot Dog Toppings Bar

Let Dad grill the dogs or sausages and everyone else can chip in to make or set out the toppings.  We love Gold's many varieties of mustards as a starting point for our dogs, then pile on the caramelized onions, baked beans, guacamole, favorite slaw or pickled vegetables.

caribbean jerk chicken

Jerk Chicken

Try some flavorful Jerk Chicken and/or a Grilled Steak with Chimichurri Sauce.

Prep ahead if you want to marinate the meat and make extra sauce, it goes great on everything.

tangy grilled asparagus

Tangy Grilled Asparagus

I can't get enough asparagus this year especially when hot off the grill.  Stay outside and keep on grilling. Throw on some peppers and/or zucchini and make extra for salads and sandwiches you can enjoy all week long.

grilled peaches

Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon Ice Cream

Now that you have had your fill and hopefully gave Dad some presents.  Make or buy some non dairy ice cream and serve with hot grilled peaches.

Wishing everyone a Happy Father's Day, a wonderful excuse to spend quality time with the family.
