Sadly I do not have special memories to recall for Fathers Day. Most likely my step-father watched cow pasture pool (aka golf) all afternoon while sipping ice cold beer. Later Mom would make dinner and we would eat around 8 or 9pm. End of story.
So when darling and I starting having a family I wanted Father's Day to be special for him. To make him feel like a King in return for the ultimate gifts he had given me, our children. I think it is safe to say we have succeeded thus far. Every Father Day is celebrated with his favorite things in mind. He might never say it but I know he has loved this day because there were no crazy schedules, errands to run, Dr. or therapy appointments. Us just being with him.
This year he made a simple request for his special day. No picnic at the beach or the lake. No well planned out dinner followed with gifts. No plans~ just to hang out. If it is sunny, we go to the pool. Rain we snuggle up and watch a movie. To just go with the flow. Dinner for all he cared could be sandwiches!
So that is exactly how we spent the day. Just hanging out. Darling spent time with each of the children on their own. He took a nap and went to the sauna. While darling was pampering himself the girls and I cooked salmon I had secretly stashed away for the day.
The sky is the limit with this very versatile cake. We will definitely be make it again and again. Please share how you liked the sponge cake and if you make any change.
