Our Father’s Day Weekend


And let the wife see to it
that she respect her husband.
Ephesians 5:33

     Honor your father and mother.
Ephesians 6:2

We spent Father’s Day with my dad, affectionately known as Pop Pop to our children.  He’s an avid golfer.  So along with watching the U.S. Open and eating a delicious dinner, we also enjoyed this cute little golf cake.

Chocolate cake, vanilla butter cream. Nothing fancy, but very cute.

Our menu was very simple and not necessarily coordinated:  Colletti burgers and homemade vegetable spring rolls.  What’s that?  Never heard of a Colletti burger?  Well, it’s just the most incredible burger you’ll eat this side of heaven.  And it’s created by our famous chef cousin, Michael Colletti.  Hence the name!  You can find a recipe here.

Applewood smoked bacon, homemade smokey chipotle bbq sauce, bacon, cheddar, and onion rings top this burger served on a potato bun.

It was my first time making spring rolls, but boy were they SO easy to make!  So long as you can find spring roll wrappers you can have these tasty, yet healthy, beauties made in no time.  We found ours at our local Asian market.  The wrappers can be made of rice or flour and are usually found dried in the noodle aisle.  Fill them with whatever veggies and, if desired meats or shrimp, you have on hand. I used this recipe, with a few modifications.

Serve with dipping sauces like sweet & sour, or Thai peanut, or sesame-garlic.

Of course I am not creative enough to make up that cute cake.  You can find the recipe & instructions, where else? Pinterest:
