First off, I know I am late, but happy Father’s day to all of the Fathers (especially mine) out there or the soon to be Fathers. I hope you all had as nice of a day as I did! My day started with breakfast in bed delivered by my wonderful wife and two amazing boys. What was even better was the whole family had breakfast in bed that day with me. That is a great way to start the day! After that I was allowed to watch all of the morning/afternoon US Open golf coverage. I was in heaven!
Later that day we went to some friends house in the neighborhood to watch the golf tournament, allow the kids to play and then eventually have dinner. Meg had prepared a great meal and took it over to our friend’s house to be cooked there. She prepared a molasses and soy flank steak with watermelon and nectarine salsa, fresh corn on the cobb with jalapeno lime butter, and a broccoli slaw with and homemade candied pecans. Then for dessert, a chocolate, peanut butter and banana pie. It was all wonderful and the flavors completely complimented each other and the wine.
Speaking of the wine, our friend Mike and Kelley served a beautiful wine to go with this special meal. On Mike’s first father’s day, his father-in-law gave him a bottle of 2003 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon. That was 7 years ago. This father’s day was the first one with his new daughter and he felt like that was a great time to open the Caymus he received for his first father’s day with his son. It was a special treat and thank you Mike for sharing it with us. It was the icing on top of the cake that was a wonderful father’s day. After the incredibly delicious diner, we all watched the finish of the exciting US Open. In my eyes, it was one of the best father’s day ever!
