It’s been a crazy crazy crazy week around here. My dad and sister got into town on Monday, and while Josh began making dinner, he sliced his finger on a lime and my dad had to take him to the E.R. and he was there for 4 1/2 hours. Thankfully, he didn’t need stitches, they did glue the wound shut though. It’s now in a splint and all bandaged and not at all pretty looking.
With my dad being in town, we did a couple of fun things, food wise. I made an Oreo Cake For my sister’s birthday (that will be posted tomorrow), we went to the Old Spaghetti Factory ( YUM), and my dad made his delicious Cheese Manicotti for us all…and we still have leftovers!
Thursday, my dad and sister left to go visit more family, but they will be back tomorrow evening and I’ll be making my dad’s Father’s Day dessert Tuesday afternoon sometime. They leave again Thursday morning, to start the trek back to Las Vegas, but not before we make and serve more delicious foods.
We have leftover Manicotti and I don’t want it to go to waste, so I think that will be dinner tonight.
My dad and Sister come back so we’ll be grilling our Teriyaki Pineapple Turkey Burgers with some of my Homemade Fries
I’m putting my dad back to work in the kitchen again and he is going to make his amazing and delicious BBQ Chicken and BBQ Buttery Bacon potatoes…oh my word, they are soooo good!
Chicken and Steak Fajitas with a salsa salad…this is of course assuming my avocado is ripe by then
I’m thinking a homemade pizza with chicken, pepperoni, pineapple ( if I have any left), and whatever else is in the kitchen and needs to be used :)
Since I made chocolate chip cookies on Sunday for my dad for part of his Father’s Day gift, we still have some left in the house, so I don’t think I need to make any treats for him for his lunch. But I will be making two desserts this week.
A Two-Tone Cheesecake
for my dad for his Father’s Day dessert
And a Raspberry Crisp
Sounds like a pretty good meal line up this week and I am really excited to try the Fish tacos. It’s been years since I’ve had them and I really enjoyed them then.

The fries turned out so so good and my dad was super impressed with them, which made me so happy :)

Your recipes for the fries and salt crusted potatoes are totally making me want them. Fries are one of my especial weaknesses.
