Prudy,
that steak looks so good! I think my husband would love that for Father's Day! I can't wait to see pictures of all your other Father's Day fare!

Looking forward to see the recipes! Definitely looks like a man's type of menu.

the father's day menu idea is genius :D...my hubby's not a dad yet, but his birthday happens to fall the day after, so I might just use one of these recipes to make him a nice dinner on his special day :D

I love that picture of the little girl and her papa, takes me back to my childhood. I am loving the steak too. It looks perfect! By the way I think your music is all a part of your charm!!

Oh Prudy you got me scared! When I saw the father's day picture I thought I had missed it, good to know it's only next week.
I have an "adoptive" dad in the US, too bad I can't cook for him, but your ideas are delicious!
