Father’s Days are filled with memories of backyard barbecues, long drives to favorite lake-side fishing spots and evenings filled with music and laughter of my uncles and cousins. With my father and step father long gone, I celebrate their lives along side my grill with a great cut of beef drizzled with a tangy chimichurri accompanied by a sweet and creamy corn pudding, a bottle of Malbec and a little Tito Puente.
Regardless of what cut of beef you choose, chimichurri will showcase the flavor of the grill and a creamy corn pudding will make this meal a special one.
In the meantime, enjoy your dad and honor his legacy this Father’s Day and everyday as you take some time to think about every father figure that has shaped your life.
