Father's Day!

We celebrated Father's Day on Sunday.  I was the first time I have seen my father on Father's Day in more years than I can recall so that was really nice!

I woke up in the morning and Ashley made some nice brunch, pancakes, soy sausages, and hash-browns.  It was a great morning meal, full of starches the way brunch should be!  Kaleigh and Ashley also got me a rice cooker!  I had been wanting one for awhile so I can not wait to use it!

That evening, my father came over and we tried to have a cookout.  It did not work out well since it was a little rainy and we could not get the grill going.  We got some nice smoker effect though, that added a nice touch to our portobello mushroom burgers and asparagus that we eventually had to cook inside.

With dinner finally served, we all got specialty sodas!  We rarely drink soda in the house so this was a treat.  I got a root beer called Rat Bastard, it was quite good!  Kaleigh got Kitty Piddle, my dad got a creamy vanilla root beer, and Ashley had a salted caramel root beer.

For desert, Ashley made a cookies and cream pudding pie topped with coconut whipped cream!  It was delicious!  All in all, it was a great father's day!  I am a lucky person to have Ashley, Kaleigh and my dad in my life!
