Clearly, Dads were the inspiration behind EatSavvy this month—with the menu laid out for a Father’s Day Feast. We made things simple, savoury and sweet, just like our Dads but we want to be clear that this menu is not just for that one day of the summer—it’s a perfect summertime feast for any night. We chose recipes that not only Dad would like (and that paired well with beer) but items that the kids could get involved with preparing. We know that if the children are more involved in the preparation of the food, they are more likely to eat it and enjoy it. So lemonade and ice cream cake are obvious choices for the kids, but why shouldn’t they also help with the seasonal green salad and yummy strawbana kebabs. Get them excited about fresh produce at an early age—there is always chocolate to dip in if necessary! Enjoy your dinner.
What did you make for Father’s Day dinner?
It likely won’t shock my husband to find me in the kitchen come Sunday, whipping up some of his favourite foods for our annual Father’s Day dinner. What will surprise him, though, is that he won’t see me slaving over a hot stove preparing a meal worthy of the dad that he is.
I have a new motto this year, which is ‘make it quick and make it early.’ Anything that can be prepared easily, and in advance, is going to rise to the top of my to-cook list—like these simple steak sliders.
The grilling of the meat can be done up to one day in advance. If you prefer, feel free to cook it on the stove top if you don’t want to fire up the barbecue for just one piece of steak. Assemble a few sandwiches, add a festive looking toothpick to hold them together, and set them out on a platter for lunch or dinner along with a few of his favourite salads.
