Daddy Day Grub 

It’s true. It’s the way to a mans heart. My hubby loves to pig out for Father’s Day. And you all know how I like to prep the day before an event (then I can enjoy the guest and the day too), so I spent my Saturday in the kitchen. Like a good little wife. Coincidentally barefoot. Empty uterus, though.

Here’s some of our grub:

Snack Crackers

Everyone has a family recipe for these things. If not, here. Take mine and once your fam has tasted one, it’s instant addiction.  


  • 2 packages of oyster crackers
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix (NOT the dip mix)
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon dillweed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Mix together everything except the crackers. I put those ingredients in a Tupperware container so I can snap the lid on and shake the heck out them to mix them up well.
  2. Pour mix over crackers. Again in a container with a tight sealing lid to shake the heck out of.
  3. Let sit overnight so the crackers soak in all the flavors.

Fruit Salad 

Again, people have many variations of fruit salad. Mines the best, clearly. Try it and see for yourself.



  • 16 oz pears halves (drained)
  • 16 oz sliced peaches (drained)
  • 20 oz pineapple chunks 
  • 1 large bunch grapes (halved)
  • 3 sliced kiwi fruits
  • 3 sliced bananas 
  • 4 oz jar marocchino cherries (drained and sliced)
  • 3.4 oz package instant lemon pudding mix


  1. Slice pears and peaches into bite size pieces and add to large storage bowl with lid.
  2. Slice grapes, kiwis, and cherries and add to bowl.
  3. Add pineapple chunks with juice.
  4. Sprinkles pudding on top of fruit and stir gently.
  5. Chill overnight.
  6. Add sliced bananas prior to serving.

Now go love on the fathers and father figures in your world!
