Father’s Day lunch

Father’s Day lunch

We had Father’s Day lunch at my mom’s and I was once again reminded that the cooking gene did not rub off on me. Going to my mom’s for a meal is a big deal at our home because of the fact that I cannot recreate the dishes she makes. My mom never fails to nail a great lunch. Case in point – father’s day lunch.

Father’s Day Menu

Jamaica (Hibiscus Tea)
Roasted Salsa
Bean Gorditas with Queso Fresco
Lasagna Roll-Ups with Alfredo Sauce
Bean Soup with Greens
Pasta Salad (made by mother-in-law)


We finished off our meal with coconut cream pie and a delicious danish cake from Sprouts. Everything was so good and it ended up being my only meal of the day.

So what about you? Did you have/make anything special for Father’s Day?

    The gorditas look so good! I can cook but nothing like my Grandmas! I really wish I was old enough when they were around to learn their ways mmm! <br /><br />I made Hubby – stuffed chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, dressing and potato salad 🙂

    All of those look great! We had salmon patties for lunch and casserole for dinner. Both of which are my husband&#39;s favorites…

    It&#39;s so late and I really shouldn&#39;t eat right now, but just the thought of that menu has me salivating.

    WE had a special Father&#39;s Day at home, too. In our case I marinated some fresh butchered lamb chops with lemon, rosemary and garlic, and served a side of salads with some aperitivos. It was a beautiful day.

    Those gorditas looks good. Love it. What a robust menu. We had rope vieja, yuca, arroz congri, Nicoise salad, flan and a few other things! Too good over here.
