Happy Father's Day

>Happy Father's Day
Today we had an enjoyable Father's Day... The weather was fantastic, both the girls called their dad since they were unable to be here and I had planned some foodie things.  The DIY Guy really enjoys going to our local BBQ place (called John Hardy's) so that was our lunch stop where we enjoyed sitting outside with some good eats and tasty beverages.  Normally we both order the same thing and the lingo is small pork plate, medium sauce with jo-jo's and coleslaw.  But today John ordered some ribs and I went with the usual.....  so yummy!  Quite filling too.

I had planned to make shrimp tacos for dinner but this meal really filled us up (now moved to Monday dinner!).  So we were content but then mid-afternoon we had a call from some friends to come over for drinks and dessert.... that sounded just right.

Dave always comes up with some fun drinks and we were greeted with this....

POM Martini

MJ made a light snack to munch on while we sat outside to enjoy the wonderful summer weather - it was a beautiful night.

I offered to bring dessert.  This is similar to the dessert we had at book club a few days ago... I added some strawberries and used Whipped Cream Vodka instead of the Tequila in the cream.  This is such a light and easy dessert to make.  

grilled pound cake with strawberries and pineapple

The DIY Guy enjoyed his day and tomorrow he will get his shrimp tacos!


  1. This food looks so good, Deb! Can I have some? ;)

  2. I'm thinking a pomtini would be a perfect drink to enjoy at tini time.

  3. That was some BBQ! The cocktail looks so good and would hit the spot during these hot summer days. I would love it if you would join my sister and I on our BBQ Block Party and share your recipe's.

    Hope to see you there
