Father’s Day Fare & The First Day of Summer

June 21, 2010

Did I mention I have an older brother named Gabe?  He’s my half brother but I whole love him, he he.  And I love when he opens up his home for our Father’s Day celebration, as was the case yesterday.  He lives in Longmont with his wife, Nikki and son, Gennaro — we call him G, G-baby, Geezy, etc.  Their house is PERFECT.  It reflects their personalities so well and it just feels so homey 🙂

The children of the future can surf the web at 16-months old, ha ha

Dad was master of the grill

Oh Whole Foods, thank you for providing juicy turkey burgers for those who cannot eat beef burgers 😦

More internet surfing ensued — I showed Gabe my blog and assured him he’d be appearing in it.  Then it was time to eat!

Open face turkey burger topped with fresh tomato, cucumber salad, potato salad, pasta salad

Gotta love the ketchup and mustard!

DROOOL — this pasta salad was awesome!  Fact: I have an incredibly talented brother.  Not only is he a fabulous artist (he blows glass for a living, how cool is that?!) but he’s also an amazing cook!  He whipped up this tasty pasta salad with fresh dill from their own garden, yum fresh herbs!

Father-son bonding

G did not feel like cooperating for the generational picture

I know it’s Father’s Day but here’s to some great mothers as well 🙂

I woke up to find a near empty PB jar in the pantry, JOY!!  Enter steel-cut oats + almond milk + berries

Organic raspberries and blackberries were a dollar a piece yesterday, score!

Nikki made sure I went home with some of their home-grown lettuce and the rest of that delicious pasta salad, which I paired together for lunch

+ some cannellini beans that we had in the fridge

I’ll leave you with two things:

  1. Pictures of G enjoying one of my “Chocolate Peanut Butter Explosion Cupcakes”

Now there’s a child after my own heart.  I’m proud to call him my nephew 😛

2.  My announcement that I’m going to run a half marathon!!  More on that tomorrow

Happy First Day of Summer!
