Emily's Father's Day Dinner

Here is my daughter, Emily, cooking up a storm this past Sunday for Father's Day dinner!

She was ably assisted by my other daughter, Hannah. Check out Hannah's newly-blonde look! She had to opt for either all blonde or all brown, for her role as Sandy in "Grease" - I think the blonde works for her!

Of course, Scott got into the act, too!
First, he was tasting the guacamole...then he was mixing the all-important mojitos!

My main job was keeping up with the used dishes! I think Emily used most of my pots and pans (just kidding Emily), but it was worth it!

This is the fantastic Mojito Chicken - by Guy Fieri on the Food Network - which we all agreed was the best chicken dish ever! First a dry rub marinade, then browning in a skillet, then oven baking in broth, and finally oven glazing. Scrumptious!

This is Emily's warm corn and tomato salad - she also made stuffed peppers, which you can see below -

...but the best part? Spending all day together with the family! Happy Father's Day, Scott! We love you!

Your family is beautiful! Sounds like you had such a great time. Their smiles say it all!
I read yesterday's post and was wondering about meals for 40 people! I get tired when I cook for just 25... All on the stove top. Indian food requires way too much chopping and prepping;)
But in the end it is all worth the time when you see everyone enjoying the way they do.
