Pretty in Pink Father’s Day Celebration for Our Super Hero

In the Pink Drink for Pre-Dad’s Day Celebration


Here’s MY SuperHero, sneaking in a nap between chapters of Melvin Beederman, Super Hero, one of their favorite chapter books to read and reread. And reread again. We couldn’t recommend Melvin more. The Dad comes highly recommended too.

For the Big Monkey, aka Dad to the Small Boy, catching some extra shut-eye is a favorite weekend pastime.

So is putting some sockeye salmon on the grill! dadsday09PINKsmThank goodness for us! That’s another reason why he’s my Superhero–the man knows how to grill and grill it good!

Saturday night we went pink: pink salmon, pink sparking Codiniu pinot noir cava, pink beet salad with goat cheese and walnuts on greens from our garden, even a pink lobster! Plus some homemade basil-arugala pesto for some colorful contrast. The dry, pink sparkler made for a beautiful table as well as a festive occasion; bonus was it went well with the meal. What a treat! Yummy!

Now you can see why we’re celebrating Father’s Day all weekend! Happy Father’s Day to all the dads! Today and every day! Cheers!
