Simple Gluten Free Father's Day Menu Plan

If you're still wondering what to make for Father's Day, I'd like to share my simple menu plan.  Tomorrow is a day to celebrate the special men in our lives, whether they're our fathers, grandfathers, husbands, or some other male figure who was always there for us.  My sons and I have a special pancake breakfast planned for Daddy tomorrow morning, and then we're headed to my parents' house for dinner. 

Our dinner menu, all gluten free of course:

Steak & chicken on the BBQ
Baked potatoes
Baked zucchini & eggplants in tomato sauce (slice, cover with sauce, sprinkle with cheese and bake at 375F for about 25 minutes.  Simple)
Salad
Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert
Piña colada popsicles for the adults & mango ones for the kids

I'm lucky to have a wonderful father who always supported me and encouraged me to be who I wanted to be.  A father who coached my teams and came on field trips.  Who took me fishing and taught me how to work with my hands.  A father who still stops by every week on his day off to check in and help me with stuff around the house. 

I'm also lucky to have a great husband who is a fantastic dad to his own two boys.  Tomorrow I'll be celebrating both those men who have enriched my life in many ways.  I hope there's someone in your life to celebrate too.  A while ago I wrote a guest post on Daddy Blogger about what my Dad taught me about good fathers.  Those lessons stay with me every day as I parent my own sons.  I had a great example to learn from.
