Let me tell you the difference between Mother's Day and Father's Day in the Barton household. HE gets the gifts I buy.
Basically on Mother's Day I buy my own gift and give it to my husband to wrap (less painful that way), we go to church (no time for breakfast), I prepare a Mother's Day dinner for my mother and mother-in-law (because they're our mothers, we love them and we should), he gets the nap and I clean up and do the dishes, I collapse so grateful this day only comes around once a year.
Father's Day, repeat, he gets the gift. Sigh...I love him.
I'm happy to celebrate the Father's in my life. I'll be missing my dad this year. He is almost 82 years old and serving a mission for our church in Kona, Hawaii. Rough life, right? He is a true example of someone who will sacrifice whatever it takes to serve others. he loves this rootbeer float made with rootbeer ice cream.
I have a wonderful and loving Father-in-law who makes us laugh and always has a smile on his face.
We are so fortunate to have these fathers to honor.
I was hoping to get off making cedar plank salmon for father's day this year because it's so easy and so fabulous, but the man wants this bad boy. You are probably tired of this burger showing up on my blog so often, but the family LOVES them.
Last year we grilled several racks of ribs with cherry cola glaze. Finger licking for sure.
I will most definitely be roasting potato wedges with this kicked up fry sauce.
My husband favorite flavor of ice cream is probably raspberry chocolate chip. This fauxmade ice cream is simple and contains another favorite of his raspberry sherbet.
Father's Day, June 15th, celebrate the father in your life.
