Thinking of the Father's Day post, I asked myself a question: what my father would like? My first thought was a cake, but not just any cake, something my father would eat. Oh, no, he is not a picky one! He has a sweet tooth for our whole big family. However because of his diabetes, he can't eat sweets anymore. I found a recipe, twisted it a little bit around, and made a diabetic-friendly cake. I know my dad would really enjoy it all to himself! (The recipe is coming in the next post).
Another thought I had was about my/partially dad's garden. Back in January, when my parents were visiting us, my dad started my little garden: he prepared garden beds, changed a soil in the boxes, walked me through on seed preparation before planting, patiently answered a zillion gardening questions I asked him. Now they are back in Europe, but each time we Skype or talk on the phone, dad always asks me about the garden. And a big thanks to Skype and my blog, he can actually see it growing. So as another gift from mother-nature and my labor is this basket of today's harvest.

Happy Father's Day! :)
