Yesterday was my dad's birthday. Mom is gone to Utah with Kendra's kids. Dad doesn't really like to receive gifts so we invited him over for dinner. Cauliflower soup from the Pioneer Woman with freshly baked rolls. And I baked my first solo apple pie. Yum.
Here are a few things about my dad that most people don't know:
*He doesn't like to receive gifts. It is stressful for him. He actually prefers to pick out his own gifts. I'm kind of like that!
*His dresser drawers are perfectly organized. Every item is neatly rolled.
*He does the dishes every Sunday.
*He LOVES missionary work and is especially good with meeting new people.
*His dog Bernie turns him into a softie. Bernie loves my dad and my dad loves him.
One of the best parts of living in my home town is getting to spend time with my parents in an ordinary day-to-day setting.
Happy Birthday Dad!
I add a few tablespoons of Better than bullion chicken flavor paste along with the broth. And I make a bigger batch than this because I have a house of hungry folks!
