Father’s Day Menu

There are few things better than celebrating a good meal with family.

Here’s what me and the cuzzies made for Father’s Day dinner:

Appetizer: My go to salad for the summer: avocado, mango, and shrimp. Extremely simple and refreshing. Tip: Use various types of mangoes for greater range of flavors.

Side #1: Simply sauteed red peppers

Side #2: Roasted potatoes with rosemary. Tip: We used too small of a pan, the taters didn’t crisp up as evenly as I would have liked since turning it was difficult. Use a bigger sheet pan to allow more room for the potatoes to roast.

Dessert was heavenly. Talenti is one of my favorite gelato brands. This hazelnut chocolate chip was great with the generous hazelnut chunks. Summer goal: try all the Talenti flavors!

Big ups to my cousin J for cooking a mean steak and dealing with my crazy ass in the kitchen. Love ya!

Looking forward to more homemade meals this summer.
