Father's Day Recap

I had a very busy and fun weekend with my parents. Yesterday was Father's Day and I was fortunate to be able to spend it with my dad, who in very father-like fashion, brought my new coffee and end tables, moved them and set them up and also spot cleaned my carpet. That's just how he is, even on Father's Day, always a provider, and for that I am grateful. Happy Father's Day to him and my grandfather who I admire and am crazy about, even though he made fun of my gift wrapping in a voicemail...



Saturday night he was treated to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville in Nashville since he loves Jimmy Buffet. This was the perfect precursor to our upcoming cruise in two weeks. Although, the key lime pie was decidedly "good" but not as good as my mom's. Of course. That's because she and I have a secret ingredient. Wink wink. No, I will never tell you.



Following dinner, we made our way up Broadway to see Cirque du Soleil's Alegria which I would recommend to anyone. It's one of the better Cirque shows with a lovely soundtrack and baroque look. If it is in a city near you, it's worth seeing.

Sunday we had my dad's all time favorite (other than key lime pie and rice krispie treats) Krispy Kreme donuts for breakfast. We watched the waterfall of glaze coat the fresh, hot donuts on the conveyer belt in satisfaction. It's the little things. I thought about attempting to make similar donuts but wasn't brave enough. I don't know if that should even be attempted! Here it is in case you are braver than me:

I also made rice krispie treats as "cupcakes" with icing. Mine however, turned out much uglier than my inspiration. I made turquoise buttercream icing so it was tropical looking and stuck a cocktail umbrella in it. The icing ran out and leaked the food coloring a bit so it looked like my beachy "cupcakes" were floating in water. I meant to do that (not). So here is the same concept, my inspiration, that looks much better than mine.
