My children (with some help from their mother) pooled together some of their savings to buy me a LEGO set for Father’s Day, and today we spent some time together and assembled it.

It’s no surprise or secret that I really do love The LEGO Movie, and Benny is basically what I was like as a child: somewhat manic, space obsessed, and ready to build a ship at a moment’s notice.

A nice homemade dinner on the table, some Herbie Hancock playing in the room… Father’s Day dinner is amazing.

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp. minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper

Combine ingredients; mix well. Spoon into 10 greased muffin cups. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until browned.

Lemon Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 4 tsp. AP flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
