Father’s Day Food Ideas

Jun14

fathers day food Celebrate Dad this Father’s Day with a Papa Pizza

With Father’s Day this Sunday, I know we are all going to be thinking of ways to make Dad’s day extra special by making him feel like a King for a Day, but have you brainstormed what you will do in the food department? Let’s help each other out by sharing what are some of your favorite Father’s Day food ideas.

I think I might have to take the tongs away, and become the grill master for the day.

Or you will definitely enjoy making him a special Papa Pizza for Father’s Day (as shown above with detailed instructions by following the link). You can prepare your own homemade pizza crust or just use store bought.

I think we’d all agree though it’s just about spending quality time together,  and food is just a really wonderful icing on the cake. Food ties into strong memories, and if you’d love to see Dad’s face light up with delight, take a few minutes this week and make this memorable Father’s Day cake. It’s not about the recipe, but the sentiment behind affirming how wonderful Dad is in our lives. (And notice the beautiful presentation on the cake plate – remember yesterday’s post on Beautiful Entertaining with Thrifted Treasures? Yes, another reason why I LOVE cake stands so much.)

So let’s help each other out in the comments, and share some of your thoughts for creative Father’s Day food ideas. I am all ears, and he will be all tummy. :)

  3. I tried it again in Google Chrome, it worked-the joy of technology. Oh I love your new conference idea coming up. I mentioned to Southerns Savers, that I’d love to help you anytime. I’ve been speaking at local churches about my freezer cooking ministry and I live in Asheville. Thanks for all your help behind the scenes with my new blog!

  9. My whole family will be together for dinner on Sunday (parents & siblings & kids), which is all my dad ever wants for Father’s Day. We’re ordering meat from City BBQ; I will make the sides and my sister’s bringing the desserts. I’m also making a rhubarb pie for my dad to take home. I made him a photo book of our trip to the NASCAR Hall of Fame back in January (last year’s Father’s Day present, taken a little late!) – so excited to give it to him!

  12. My dh loves fried food more than life itself- definitely more than everything I bake- so this year I’m trying out chicken fried steak for him. It turned out well, made even better with some white gravy!
