Well, I hope all the fathers out there had a wonderful Father’s Day weekend! Hopefully mine did! I think he enjoyed a day filled with enchiladas, strawberry pretzel dessert, St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake, and a homemade chocolate chip cookie from McDermott Road Church of Christ
this morning! In addition, I got him a Dallas Mavericks NBA Championship t-shirt in one of his (and my) favorite colors, royal blue!
In addition, we finally “christened” our dining room in our new house. My husband and I normally just eat at our kitchen table, which seats four people, but today we had 5, plus it was a special occasion! I absolutely LOVE decorating table place settings for when I have guests. As you can see, my favorite color is royal blue. When my husband and I got married, I registered for Spode Blue Italian dinnerware. I know most people just eat on white plates, but I love a pop of color, especially when it’s blue. Later, I bought some really pretty yellow linen place mats and napkins to go with it, as you can see.
Anyways, back to cooking…. today’s Father’s Day Menu consisted of the following. If you see any recipes worth trying, as always, let me know what you think of them!
