Dads are an awesome thing to celebrate, aren’t they?!
This year I had the pleasure of celebrating Father’s Day with two great Dad’s. Not my own, sadly! But, my husband’s (and my) great friend, who we fondly call Wildcat, just moved to Seattle from Dallas and is staying with us. He had to make the journey out here before his family, so it was our job to make it a special day. It was an all day affair! After a great breakfast, we headed to the beach for a picnic. It was serene, gorgeous, and best of all…. delicious.
There just happened to be a sailing event of some sort (something I know nothing about, but am completely in awe over), so it made for a really colorful view.
It really was a great little picnic. (And, it helped that our little one was sound asleep in the stroller so Mom & Dad could partake!)
We enjoyed some local Freya’s Gold brew by a Seattle brewery, called Odin. It was great and paired perfectly with our lunch. We will definitely be trying that beer again. So, about that lunch!
Our Spicy Italian Fig Sandwich was originally an open-faced recipe that came from Spoon Fork Bacon. I’ve had it printed and stowed away in my recipe book since last year waiting for the perfect time to try it. This little sandwich had so many layers and flavors packed into one sweet pretty little bite. Give it a try!
Hope you enjoyed your Father’s Day!
