Planning a Father’s Day Menu + Recipe

I think good fathers are the unsung heroes of our day. They generally don’t get to spend all day with their kids like moms *might* get to. I can’t imagine that!!

My husband comes home after a long day of work with other people’s kids (which as a former teacher I know can be taxing), and still has energy and time for playing and reading with our sons, giving them baths, helping me get them to the dinner table. I’m honestly not sure I could do all that after working 7-8 hours somewhere else!

If there’s one thing most dads want, I think it’s simply to be appreciated. Of course, one thing I know (at least, true in our family), a great way to show appreciation is to make some yummy food for Dad!

As a blogging partner with Emeals.com (for which I received a complimentary subscription), I’m sharing a delicious dessert perfect for Father’s Day!

Caramel-Brownie Chunk Milkshakes (by eMeals)

Ingredients

½ cup milk
4 cups vanilla ice cream
3 store bought or homemade brownies, chopped
Caramel or hot fudge topping (optional)

Instructions

1. Place milk in a blender.
2. Add ice cream; blend until smooth.
3. Add half of brownies to blender; pulse until brownies are blended.
4. Spoon into glasses; drizzle with desired topping.
5. Top milkshakes with remaining brownies.

I’ve been using eMeals off and on for the past few months and have enjoyed the menu plans they offer.

eMeals is the simple dinner solution for busy people who want to spend their money wisely and their time with people they love. eMeals is the easy way to be organized, have a well-managed grocery budget and enjoy healthy dinners at home.

So far, I’ve tried the Clean-eating, Paleo, and Slow Cooker Clean Eating menu plans. Each menu is impeccably detailed with recipes, instructions, tips, and grocery shopping list (categorized so if you don’t do a certain meal, you know which items NOT to purchase!). The one caveat I’ve found sometimes the menus use a lot of different ingredients, so I found myself spending more than usual.

I’ve tried dozens of the eMeals recipes, and they are all tasty – I haven’t had a “dud” yet! Generally, I use 5 out of the 7 recipes provided for the week, as there’s always a couple that I just don’t like the ingredients or something. But five meals a week is plenty for our family and then we eat leftovers or homemade pizza the other nights.

If you’ve been trying to save time in the kitchen (and a lot of headache) you should check out eMeals – they have sample menus you can download for free. So you can see how their system works and try out a couple recipes before committing.

What’s your menu plan for Father’s Day!?

I don't have a Father's Day meal yet but I'm guessing pizza!

I did 3 months with emeals and it was niiiice but you are right I spent more getting all these 'other' ingredients. How was the slow cooker one?
