For Dad

by Kelsi Leitz in , , ,


 

We have a leisurely Father's Day planned for tomorrow, though I know for sure there will be a solid breakfast with lots of bacon (my son's request). Here are a few things on my short list this year to celebrate the dad in our house...

Judd Apatow's new book is a collection of interviews he's conducted with pretty much every comedian you know of over the last thirty years. And fitting for Father's Day, there are quite a few discussions on being dads.

Another book, called Lunch at the Shop. Peter Miller Books is an architecture and design bookshop here in Seattle. If you've never been, surely take the time to pay them a visit. Peter cooks lunch at the shop every day. You can see how the daily ritual came to be here

Lunch at the Shop demonstrates "how to embrace a lifestyle that places importance on every single meal we have and values lunch as a moment of nourishment and pleasure." Something I think a lot of us could get behind.

My in-laws gave me a Thermapen for my birthday this year and that same week my friend Omar wrote about how amazing this little instant read thermometer is. It had been on my wishlist for a long time and my only regret is that I didn't have one sooner. You'll be cooking burgers to order like a pro, along with everything else.

A growler of Rachel's Ginger Beer. Visit her shop in the Pike Market (or now open on 12th Ave on Capitol Hill). Or even get it delivered to your door via Amazon Fresh...

A Blue Bottle coffee subscription.

Or maybe a Sonos speaker for the kitchen.  Happy Father's Day to all of you great dads I know.
