Often, even before covid, my family and I celebrate Father's Day at home. It's a chance for me to whip up a special Father's Day Menu with my beloved husband's favorite meals.

These couple of recipes are very easy and quick to prepare. I promise!

Let's go to the kitchen!

Honey BBQ ribs

The ingredients you will need are:
1 pound pork ribs.

Salt and pepper.

1 cup of wheat flour.

1 egg.

1 cup of barbecue sauce (honey mustard is perfect).

1/4 cup of water.

1 teaspoon of honey.

Frying oil.

First, very carefully cut the pork ribs into pieces and season with salt and pepper. Then, beat the egg in a bowl and add the ribs.

Then flour the ribs twice. Brush the ribs with the egg again and repeat the flour process.

Fry the ribs until it gets golden brown on both sides.

The sauce. In the frying pan, mix the barbecue sauce, water and honey.

Add the fresh golden brown ribs. Stir until all ribs are covered with the sauce. It will take just a minute.

As a garnish add the stuffed potatoes recipe posted right below.

Cheesy broccoli stuffed potatoes

These potatoes are a perfect preparation to serve with your ribs.

These are the ingredients:

3 large potatoes.

50 grams of Broccoli.

100 milliliters of heavy cream (equivalent to cup).

50 grams of mozzarella cheese.

50 grams of Parmesan cheese.

2 tablespoons oil.

Salt and pepper.

First cut the broccoli into small trees. Boil the broccoli for 10 minutes in boiling water.

After that, fry the broccoli with oil and cream. Stir very well.

Add the grated mozzarella cheese and stir until the cheese begins to melt. Add salt and pepper. Store the broccoli in a container until cool.

The potatoes. Cook the potatoes in water for 30 minutes. Take them out of the pot and let them cool a bit.

Then cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the center with a spoon. Like tiny bowls.

Fill the potatoes with the broccoli mixture. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top.

Bake at 200C (or 390 F) for a few minutes until the cheese is getting slightly golden.

Now, you have the juicy ribs, these delicious potatoes and get a beer.

You just made the perfect Father's Day lunch!

Let me finish this column congratulating all expat dads living abroad. I wish you a lazy and happy Pura Vida day!
