Dads do so much, and hardly ever take a break! Need ideas on how to say thank you for everything he does? This Father’s Day, it’s time for Dad to put his feet up (in his Nuknuuks of course). Give him the gift of a relaxing Sunday, because he deserves a morning filled with love and comfort!
Make Breakfast Fit For a Dad
Let Dad sit back, relax and enjoy a refreshing iced coffee out on the patio while he waits for breakfast!
Simple & Delicious Iced Coffee:
-In a cocktail shaker, add strong coffee, ice, 2% milk, maple syrup/honey. Shake it all up and serve! Want to make this coffee a little Irish? Add 1 ounce of Tia Maria or Kahlúa to the cocktail shaker.
Then for breakfast, a hearty and savoury potato casserole that will make his mouth water. (See recipe below)
To really give him the restful day he deserves, why not do a little tidying up for him. You can wash his car, clear his workspace, organize the garage… It’s a nice and helpful way to show you care!
Take Care Of His Errands
Don’t let those slippers leave his feet! If he has a long to-do list, running a few errands for him will help reduce his workload. That way he has time for a second helping of your potato casserole.
Spend Time With Him
You helped him have a peaceful day, but what he’ll love more than anything is spending quality time with you. Between all the cooking and cleaning, make time to slip into your Nuknuuks and enjoy the day with your Dad!
