I almost forgot Father's Day. Too busy this week. Where does the time go!
Most father's, men, are perfectly happy with meat, potatoes, salad and bread. Light on the salad. If your purse permits a nice big strip steak go for it. Use some of the Espresso Steak Rub. If not, one of my favorites is Country-Style Pork Ribs on the grill. These actually cook while you sleep. Make his favorite potato salad or Twice Baked Potato Casserole. Both are done ahead. Throw in a nice green vegetable just because you can, and it's fresh vegetable season. It also makes a good impression on the kids. Look at Dad he eats green stuff!
Don't kill yourself making homemade bread unless he just loves it. A good bakery bread will do fine.
Now, put a little more effort into the dessert, but don't make it an all day deal. He will not notice anyway. I would suggest a nice Pound Cake Banana Pudding. Frozen pound cake (Sara Lee) is just wonderful for this.
Good heavens! Look what a great meal you have and everything was done a day ahead except finishing the steaks or ribs on the grill. I hope he did as well for Mother's Day.
