Thinking of Dad this Father's Day (Plus, a Give-Away)

As I was thinking of what to write about for a Father's Day post, I started to recall the times I talked about my dad on this blog. Turns out, it's a lot of times. So, rather than create a new story, I'm going to share some of the spark some good memories of you and your and dad. And, to dads everywhere, thanks, and Happy Father's Day.

There's a give-away too! 

In the comment section below, please share a fond memory of your dad. It can be sentimental, funny, quirky, food-related, sports-related, whatever. It's completely up to you! I'll choose 5 winners and mail them a signed copy of my book, Recipes Every Man Should Know

Deadline for entry is the end of the day, Sunday, June 10th so I can mail you the books in time for Father's Day on June 17.

Tweet about the contest, mentioning @Susan_Russo, and I'll count that as another entry. Good luck!

See a video of my dad trying to crack open a 14-pound crustacean. This is good viewing, folks.

My dad share's his perfect pepper biscuits for my Christmas cookie round-up.

My attempt at an intervention regarding my dad's obsession with stockpiling food. 

Dad + Jerry Lewis + bushels of peppers = Labor Day celebration

Buddy may be the Cake Boss. My dad is the Pizzelle Boss.

A story about my dad's overzealous appreciation to spaghetti squash.

Me: Wisdom teeth, pain. Dad: Shamrock Shakes. Lots of them. 

One of the first posts I had written on Food Blogga highlighted two of my dad's favorite things:
pizza and football.
