Father’s Day is this Sunday!! A day to appreciate the Fathers, Grandfathers and Father Figures in our life.
This is an important day in our house. It’s a time to say thank you to John for being an amazing Dad, my best friend, the kids personal pool catapult, the perfect lawn guy, the trash taker-outer, the story reader and dream teller, the voice of reason (when I decide I can take on another project that is way above my skill level), and an amazing provider for our family…. the list could go on and on. He works SO hard and is the number one reason I am able to stay home with my babies and have Mom’s Dinner.
So thank you, John! You are a dream come true and we love you so so much!
On Sunday I am sure we will celebrate with donuts in the morning, a little pool time in the afternoon, maybe a family activity or two, and end with some mega grilling and beers. Here are some great menus to celebrate the Fathers in your life this Sunday.
Happy Father’s Day!
4 Great Grilling Menus for Father’s Day:
Bacon Jam & Blue Cheese Burgers
I’m going out on a limb and saying that 90% of Dad’s LOVE bacon! This is a bacon rich burger that makes a great celebration dinner. Not to mention the leftover bacon jam goes great over fried eggs for breakfast- #winning.
10 Garlic Clove Marinated Grilled Filet
We LOVE beef tenderloin filet at our house! It is definitely a treat. This 10 Garlic Clove Marinated Grilled Filet from Recipes Worth Repeating is the perfect grilled steak for Father’s Day! Serve it with Broccoli Bacon Salad from Mom’s Dinner and Easy Parmesan Truffle Fries from Hunger Thirst Play.
“Everything” Crusted Salmon
How beautiful does this salmon look!!! I am 100% obsessed with “everything” seasoning. This “Everything” Crusted Salmon from Platings and Pairings would make a wonderful seafood option for father’s day. (Psst…Trader Joe’s even makes a pre-blended Everything But the Bagel seasoning you could use to simplify the recipe.)
This dish would pair perfectly with a rice pilaf or couscous and my Lemon Garlic Green Beans.
Grilled Chicken Kabobs with Mango Jalapeno BBQ Sauce
If you are looking for a great grilled chicken recipe you can stop looking here! This recipe for Grilled Chicken Kabobs with Mango Jalapeno BBQ Sauce is a great combo of char-grilled chicken glazed with a spicy and sweet BBQ sauce. This is a crowd pleasing recipe for sure!
These Grilled Chicken Kabobs would be wonderful served with my Cheesy Potato Casserole and Grilled Veggie Kabobs.
Bonus: Don’t forget dessert!
Summer Berry Cobbler is a delicious dessert to celebrate all the wonderful berries of summer. It is full of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries topped with a golden sweet cake. Serve it with fresh whipped cream or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Hot summer nights call for cool and refreshing ice cream. This No Churn Cookies & Cream Key Lime Ice Cream makes the perfect refreshing and sweet dessert after you finish your delicious dinner. If is tastes just like key lime pie! It is full of sweet cream, lime juice, lime zest, and crushed vanilla cream cookies!
Chocolate is always a dessert win! This decadent Homemade Chocolate Sheet Cake with Pour on Chocolate Frosting is just the ticket to satisfy any chocolate craving. Top with a little whipped cream or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream… or chocolate ice cream for an extra chocolatey dessert.
