We are typically recovering from a long swim meet on Father’s Day, so sometimes it’s a bit low key, but I do like to do a nice cookout for our family, sometimes having others over, sometimes just our family. What type of foods do you like to cook on Father’s Day?
I tend to grill because it’s almost always hot outside! But occasionally I’ll make something ahead of time and either refrigerate or freeze it until needed. Many of the recipes included in this Father’s Day Recipes post are make-ahead, grilled, easy and DELICIOUS!
You might say, that these Father’s Day recipes are a bit more masculine, you know; no froo-froo foods or drinks here. Manly recipes, with beer, bourbon, beef, bread….you get the idea! Arrr, Arrr, Arrr! Sorry, that’s my best Tim-the-Tool-Man impression! 🙂
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
My husband is an amazing Dad! He is an excellent example of what it is to be a father and husband. There is nothing that makes me more grateful and brings a smile to my face than when my husband plays and wrestles with our boys, tells them how proud he is of them, corrects and teaches them, hugs them and tells them he loves them and shows them how to treat a women (by how he treats me).
He encourages them to try something new that he could accomplish in 10 minutes, but has the patience of Job to show them how to do it, to let them try and even fail until they succeed. He’s a fabulous listener and asks the best questions of our kids. But best of all, he provides them spiritual direction, pointing them always to the heavenly Father. Below are a few books that have shaped the way my husband has parented our boys…

Oh a girl needs her Daddy and I have to say at this time of year, I really miss my Daddy! He’s been with Jesus for almost 14 years now. He wasn’t a perfect dad (there really aren’t any ya know, except our Heavenly Father) but he WAS the perfect dad for me. Hug a dad this Sunday! It’s not easy being a dad you know!
“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed,
and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.”
~ Billy Graham

I am so very blessed to have a kind, loving, caring, thoughtful “Bonus” dad though! Bill has been part of our family for a long time; he’s an awesome Grampy to our boys and loves and cares for each of us “kids” and our families as if we were his own. And it doesn’t hurt that he adores and loves my Mom! Happy Father’s Day, Bill!
