Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and honorary dad’s out there!

I’m playing sous chef and head dishwasher for my daughter Tamar, as she prepares a meal for her dad from Cooking With the Seasons, Rancho La Puerta.  This is one of the wonderful cookbooks from Rancho La Puerta, the fabulous fitness spa in Tecate, just south of San Diego.

Tonight’s menu includes aguas frescas made with lime juice and cilantro, Mexican coleslaw with red and green cabbage, lasagna Azteca with spinach and ancho chile salsa, and creamy dark chocolate flan with fresh berries.

I know my husband will be thrilled…not just by the food, but also by the fact that our daughter created this feast in his honor.

Gotta dash  – she needs oregano from my herb garden!

Later that night….

Dinner is served!

Happy Father’s Day one and all!

    And what a great father’s day it was with a nice dinner prepared largely by my daughter and our first meal on the new patio, fountain running, fire burning. Thanks to you and the kids. Love you all.
