Need some ideas to put together a great Father's Day meal? Be sure to check my newest, updated list of great Father's Day recipes by clicking right here!

How about a roast? Do a Chuck Pot Roast on the stovetop, an Oven Braised Beef Eye of Round Roast with Pan Gravy or an Oven Roasted Beef Rump Roast with Mushroom Gravy instead. Add some fantastic Mashed Potatoes, Southern Style Creamed Peas, Southern Style Green Beans, or why not try a refreshing summer salad like Fire 'n Ice Summer Salad? What man would not be thrilled with this special dinner?

Wanna keep it more casual? Take the grilling duties over and have a cook-out for dad with a Grilled Steak made with Cajun Steak Marinade and some Open Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary on the side. Or how about an Oven Braised Beef Brisket? Wanna just keep it simple? How about some delicious Crockpot Barbecue Beef, or Yummy Hamburger Sandwiches instead? Or grill up some Backyard BBQ Chicken, or an All American Burger, Country Bob's Cheese Stuffed Burger or Juicy Onion Burgers. Then add a Cold Baked Potato Salad, or a more traditional Southern Style Potato Salad, and maybe some Baked Beans on the side.

Does the dad in your life love veggies? Try his favorite vegetables on a Roasted Summer Veggie & Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing, or if you have a lot of squash coming in, do some Squash Fries or a delicious Summer Squash Casserole with crookneck squash. Still waiting on those tomatoes to ripen? How about some Fried Green Tomatoes?

Need some dessert ideas? There's a whole list of 'em right here, including Texas Sheet Cake, Homemade Southern Banana Pudding with Meringue Topping, Easy Homemade Southern Peach Ice Cream, Jimmy Carter Cake, the Best Brownies Everor maybe a Fresh Strawberry Pie to name a few!

Nothing appealing here? Just scan through my e-Cookbook or click on that "Past Post" archive in the upper right hand sidebar to browse the past recipe posts by date - you're bound to find something that strikes your fancy!

And later on in the evening, when things have settled down, why not give a Southern Iced Tea Cocktail, Mint Julep, Mojito, or one of my other adult beverages?

Hope you find something helpful and that you have a wonderful Dad's Day with the all of the fathers in your life!!
