Our family got together at my brother-in-law’s house for the father’s day celebration today.
Since my brother-in-law was cooking burgers and hot dogs, the rest of the members brought side dishes.
These are the things I brought…
Lemony Garbanzo Farro Salad.
I’ve learned that people (well, at least our family) eat more when veggies are served separately like this (vs. mixed together in a big bowl).
When I heard my little nephew, Carter, asking his mother to get him broccoli and cucumber, I couldn’t help smiling.
This is my new thing.
Dressing in a jar.
I learned making dressing in a jar from Ms. Ree by watching her show.
This is absolutely genius.
You can mix all the ingredients by simply shaking it.
Also it’s easy to bring to a potluck because you can close the lid tight.
Grandma Kiel’s molasses cookies.
It was great to see everyone today, especially my father-in-law for a good reason.
I’m so glad that he is healthy, active, and enjoying his retirement so much.
My father-in-law and my father are the two most active men I know, and I think it’s awesome.
