Father's Day Menu

A couple of years ago on Father's Day morning, I asked Brett what he would like as a special dinner that evening. He didn't hold back. He quickly rattled off a list of requests -- Crab Cake for the appetizer, Grilled Tri-Tip for the main course and Lemon Cream Cheese Pie for dessert. I paused for a second. I had never really made any of his requests. Yes, we'd had tri-tip before, but he usually grilled it. As for the crab cakes and pie, I had never made it nor did I have a recipe. But, I had asked him what he wanted, so I was determined to deliver.*

After some cookbook research, internet research and a visit to the grocery store, I managed to pull off a fabulous meal. I'm guessing that he probably grilled the tri-tip -- I honestly don't remember. But, I made the rest of the meal. Although we probably won't have tri-tip this year since we no longer live in "tri-tip country," I'm sure we'll have something yummy. I just might even make the crab cakes and the pie because they are just that good.

If you're looking for something special to make for Father's Day, try one of these recipes or head over to Ultimate Recipe Swap at Life as MOM for ideas.

*And yes, he really is lucky to be married to a woman like me. :) Oh, and I'm lucky to be married to a man like him.
