I was raised to believe that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. In my house growing up, this was certainly true as most celebrations centered around a big meal. Whether it was his birthday or Father’s Day, dad was sure to be thrilled with gifts involving food.
Fortunately, my mother and both of my grandmothers taught me how to bake and cook. They raised me to nurture and show appreciation by filling our home with warmth and the rich scents of a big meal. I like the idea of caring for my dad much like he nurtured me growing up. Today, my husband enjoys the treats that come from our kitchen and jokes that I am the reason he has gained five pounds since we married!
It is estimated that in 2012 over 80 million Americans will participate in a barbecue, most of them families and many of them on Father’s Day. I guess my mom was right; the best way to a man’s heart really is through his stomach!
