For Mother's Day we had a gourmet feast (thank you Lydia) but for Father's Day, it was time to break out the grill! My Dad loves hot Italian sausage, but it is not a meal that we eat often. So this year for Father's Day, I decided to give the man what he likes!
I headed out to Central Market and bought fresh corn on the cob, red & orange peppers, vidalia onions, Andouille & hot Italian sausages, ground sirloin (for burgers), Hebrew National jumbo hot dogs, kettle chips, baked beans, and buns - I wanted to make sure that there was something for everyone. Unfortunately, it was a typical Seattle rainy day so I cheated and used the indoor grill instead of the gas one outside.
Everything turned out to be delicious! I even liked the sausage (which is a food that I normally do not eat) and I discovered that my son that hates all vegetables actually likes raw peppers (he takes after his aunt). I made tons of food and we will have leftovers to munch on for lunch this week - yum!
Lydia brought the dessert, which was sorbet, fresh fruit and wafer cookies. The dessert was light and fresh and balanced out the heavy dinner. It was a really nice way to celebrate Father's Day and nobody left the table hungry. The only thing that could have made the meal complete is if the sun was out and it was warm (my father would be happy with a snow storm).
Happy Father's Day!
