Are you ready for Father’s Day? You still have a couple of days to make plans to celebrate the dads in your life . . . . and here are a few fun recipes from our friend Marilyn Lesniak at Marilyn’s Treats. Check out her blog for lots of great recipes for every day of the year!
The month of June announces the true beginning of summer! And the most important celebration in the month of June is Father’s Day. Give Dad a break on his special day, and serve up a few of these “masculine” dishes with recipes from Marilyn’s Treats.
Chili Dog Pizza
“Chili Dog Pizza is not just for kids. Adults enjoy it, too! When my husband ordered this from a nice family restaurant we frequent, I thought he was crazy. When they brought it to the table with the cheese running down, chili, hot dog pieces, onions and mustard swimming on top, it smelled soooo good! This one offers an easy, fast, and different menu option for your family. Dad will love it!”
Grilled Parmesan Asparagus
“Do you get as excited as I do when grilling season comes around? With a working farm just down the street, the first crop of the season is asparagus. This is the time when my prodigal son returns for the life of “eating at mom’s” every Sunday. This is my time to cook the meals I love and set another plate or two at the table. The meals of sausage, salmon, hot dogs, chicken, burgers, fresh veggies, sautéed mushrooms and onions become common and the fresh summer sides overflow my counter. Sports events are on the television and conversations take place in the kitchen and living area. And in case you are wondering, when I get a good big fire going in the grill I do go overboard and make enough variety for the week! Yum!
Grilled Pork and Sweet Potato Kabobs
Rosemary infused marmalade gives great flavor to pretty sweet potatoes, zucchini and pork. These are delicious! I used onion & garlic marinated pork and added sweet onion pieces and green, red & yellow bell pepper pieces to the kabobs. The marinade tastes wonderful. These kabobs were a real kid-pleaser.
