A Father's day idea

I've been trying to think of a gift to give John for his second Father's day.  I had the best Mother's day which involved me cooking brunch for my Mom, a nap and a trip to Barnes & Noble complete with coffee! (I realize I have been on a bit of a blogging hiatus, but I have had things going on that I couldn't share here and I am a bit of a blabber mouth so I had to refrain from posting...)

John is just as simple as I am and has a few loves (beyond his family) that include vintage episodes of Star Trek, new music and ice cream(!)  So when I saw the Father's day menu pop up on emeals this week complete with this recipe for caramel brownie milkshakes I knew I found his Father's day gift.  I think a couple of uninterrupted hours of Star Trek and this milkshake will make a great Father's day for him!

Ingredients: Milk, good quality vanilla ice cream, your favorite brownies, and caramel for drizzling.

If you haven't tried emeals, now is the time.  Use the code DADS for 15% off- and if you sign-up now you will get access to the special Father's Day menu. I use emeals to plan out our weekly eats and since I started I have gotten our grocery budget down to about $80 a week for my family of three. We eat the Paleo plan and have lots of fresh produce and meats to work with.  Share your thoughts about this recipe on twitter with #emeals or join us on at facebook.com/emealz for more conversation!
