Father’s Day Menu

What better way to say Happy Father’s Day than with the ultimate Father’s Day Menu?!

Oh man… Dads. They are awesome. And with Father’s Day coming up this weekend – I’m throwing out a TON of ideas so you can customize the perfect menu for the big day! It’s Thomas’ first Fathers Day so we’re going big. First – an infant CPR class and THEN brunch. Priorities…

Let’s start with appetizers:

Homemade Tzatziki + Pita!
