What is Your Dad's Favorite Food?
Is your dad a vegetarian or meat lover?
Some dads have favorite foods that we are aware of and some really do not give any indication on what are his favorite foods. Like my dad, I do not recall a favorite food. I do recall foods that he loved to eat. Any red meats, chicken, pork and seafood was on his list. He loved all vegetables that I know of and the two that could have been his favorite was green onions and cooked spinach. He would push spinach on to me, but I refused to eat it. It probably did not help much when he said, "Sandy, eat some spinach. It will put hair on your chest."
Below are a few recipes on cards that I think my dad would love to eat.
Shrimp on the Barbie Recipe Postcard
(Mail these recipe cards below out to your friends. Wonderful for your store or shop.)
My dad loved eating meat. He was the only one in the family who did not mind if his steak or prime rib swam in a pool of blood. All meat in our house had to be cooked well done (at least for everyone else). When we went out to eat he was in heaven eating something that was pink or red in the middle and it was able to moo back.
My dad loved to grill and besides the red meat, he loved seafood like salmon and shrimp. Here is one grilled shrimp recipe on a postcard and article, I am sure he would love.

Old Fashion Brownies
Apple pie, cherry pie and brownies could have been his favorite. Those were the three main desserts in our house. My mother and I baked many other desserts, but those three were the ones that I remember eating the most of.
Brownies are always an ideal dessert for picnics. Also will go good with corn beef and cabbage and the ham recipe on cards below.

Ham and Corn Beef Recipes
Baked ham was and still is the tradition to eat in our family for Easter as it is most families. It is good eat anytime for any occasion.
I had not tried corn beef and cabbage until moving nearly 2,000 away from my parents. It is not something that ever cooked in my family growing up. But if my dad were alive today, I am sure he would love my Corn Beef and Cabbage recipe.
(These recipes are easy to see on the postcards on Zazzle with the link in the beginning part of this page.)

Baked Corned Beef Recipe
- 3 lbs corned beef, in package
- 10 cloves, whole
- 1/4 cup hot sweet honey mustard
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Drain the corned beef from the package and discard the spice packet. Lay corned beef, fat side up, on a large piece of heavy duty, wide, aluminum foil. Insert the cloves into the top of the slab of corned beef, evenly spaced. Spread the top with the hot sweet honey mustard. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top.
- Wrap the corned beef with foil allowing for a little space on top between the corned beef and the foil to create a container to catch the juices. Place foil-wrapped corned beef in a shallow roasting pan and bake for 2 hours.
- Open the foil wrapping, spread a little more honey mustard over the top of the corned beef, and broil it for 2-3 minutes, until the top is bubbly and lightly browned. Let rest for 5 to 10 minutes, then place on cutting board and cut at a diagonal, across the grain of the meat, into 1/2-inch thick slices.
