The Father's Day is celebrated to honor our fathers for everything they do for us through out their life. In 2009, Fathers Day will be celebrated on June 21st. The holiday always falls on the 3rd Sunday of the month of June.

At our home, we always start with a special breakfast. This is where the kids most like to help out. We usually devise some sort of egg dish, and more importantly, some type of pastry that I help them with. My husband Loves (yes, with a capital L) a pastry. I think this year we'll make from-scratch cinnamon rolls. Those are always a hit and I just leave them to rise overnight in the fridge so they are ready to bake in the morning. A super easy recipe for those who are baking-challenged is Stay Up All Night Coffee Cake, a monkey bread like confection.

I can't get it together to predict where we'll be at lunchtime, so I'll let that stay its typical free-for-all.

But I know dinner will be a cookout, and since I'm the griller in the family anyway, it won't be an out of the ordinary activity. I'm going with ribs on Sunday. They're the kids' favorite and can I can pre-bake them before heading for the pool, so will just need to reheat them on the grill when we're ready to eat.

What's on the menu at your place? Is dad guiding the way or are Mom and the kids planning a surprise?
