Father's Day Dinner

Sis worked and then spent the evening with her dad, and Nat and Shel and I went to church then I helped them cook dinner and dessert for their dad.

First we made an apple pie.

Public Service Message: with pre-made pie crusts, it's so easy, and when someone makes you a pie it's so impressive. I highly recommend pie making for those that want an easy way to make a good impression.

Seriously, look at that thing. Who would not be humbled when presented with such a treat?

Then the girls made chicken and rice and spinach salad.

It was a hit. They had a good time and were so proud of their accomplishment.

At our house when there is a female in the kitchen doing more than boiling water for ramen or mac and cheese, it's a big deal. My husband does almost all the cooking. He really enjoys cooking, so who am I to get in the way of his enjoyment? I don't want to be known as a fun-sucker after all. Plus he can look at the all the random stuff in the cupboard and fridge and throw together something edible. I however, need not only a recipe but all the correct ingredients as well. Imaginative I'm not.

I am so impressed with that pie!

My husband likes to cook and I do not consider myself to be a very good cook! I agree, why spoil the husband's fun?

Both of us lucked out by marrying men who are wonderful cooks! You have the baking category cornered though .... and what's more important, a delicious, balanced meal or brownies right out of the oven (I think you know my answer to that one .... lol!). It sounds like Uncle Mike had a great Father's Day!

Uh, I am soooooo afraid of pies!

Pie making, that is.

I can eat a pie pretty well. No inclination to make them. Scared of them. Plain and simple.

That one, though, looks so yummy!
