Daddy's Day!

Yesterday we had a mini Daddy's Day celebration for my Daddy.  I made him lunch:  taco burgers!

Real beef, just for him, with guacamole, cheddar cheese, salsa, lettuce and a dollop of sour cream.  Mm.  (Well, for them at least.  My parents said it was good.  I have a black bean "burger" which was delicious.)  My dad was so happy it was real beef!

I also made him a beer cake.  Beer cake?  Yes indeed.  I haven't tasted it yet, but apparently it's pretty legit.  It's more like a spice cake, I believe, with the cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon peel and honey.  It smelled delicious. Recipe HERE.

And for his gift he got a reconstructed t-shirt pillow!

He got this t-shirt the first time we went to Virginia Beach, when I was a baby, like 2, so like 20 years ago?  he loves this shirt to death, and wears it all the time, driving my mom crazy.  It's pretty raggedy.  She was going to throw it away a few months ago and I saved him and made him into a pillow!  Now he'll have his shirt forever.

Daddy and his t-shirt pillow!

Happy Daddy's Day to all the daddy's out there!  

P.S.  Did you read the Father's Day secrets on PostSecret?  Good god, I was bawling my eyes out.

I second the Happy Fathers Day to all Daddy's! :D Love the idea of turning the old t-shirt into a pillow - my Dad has an old cardi that my Mum hates, maybe I could do the same with that?!
I read them Post Secrets too, some of them are so sad :(
