Celebrate His Special Day!

Father's Day

This Father’s Day, treat Dad like the superstar he is. It’s all about great food, relaxation and being with family.

Here are some suggestions on how you can celebrate his special day.

Outdoor Fun

This year, give Dad something totally different: a day in the great outdoors. Not only will he get to enjoy all the beauty nature has to offer, but a picnic with his family is a wonderful way to show him how much you care.

Depending on where you set up your picnic, you may be able to bring along a small hibachi to barbecue hamburgers, chops or chicken. If going this route, marinate the meat at home and keep it in the cooler in an airtight container.

However, many dishes are great cold and can be made the day before. Think pizzas, grilled shrimp or crisp fried chicken. Sandwiches are another delicious—and portable—option. Check out our sandwich suggestions here. Sandwiches without eggs, mayonnaise, lettuce or tomatoes can be made ahead and frozen, making them perfect for a picnic. They will thaw during the outing and be fresh when it's time to eat.


Don’t forget the salads! They should be packed in airtight containers, with the dressing in a separate jar. Finally, plan easy-to-carry snacks for a quick energy boost: cookies, muffins, granola bars or homemade trail mix.

And above all, don't forget to bring water or fruit juice.
