Happy Father’s Day

I sent my dad a present earlier this week.  He has been into barbequing lately so I bought him a book on it and some Emeril’s rib rub.  He was excited 🙂

For lunch Brandon and I had a Poor Man’s Hotdog.  We put a Hebrew Nation 97% fat free hotdog in a piece of bread with ketchup and mustard.

I love this, but it is 12oz of filet! I took the majority of mine with my sweet potato home.
