Dishing on Dad
Flava Issue 2
Father’s Day will this year be celebrated on Sunday, 17 June, where fathers, fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society will be honoured. Grace Bostock, 10, told Flava what she thinks of her dad Stuart, and how she will honour him on Father’s Day with breakfast.
Happy Father’s Day!
Now I love my dad and all of you love your dads too right – I mean who doesn’t? But we love our dads in different ways.
I love my dad because he works all day to keep a roof over my head and supply me with food. He is so funny and also serious at times, but no matter what mood he’s in I will love him forever! He is sweet as a cupcake, cool as a cucumber, and certainly not a couch potato. He is forgiving, nice, hardworking, generous and kind.
And someone as good as that deserves the best father’s day breakfast ever – so I have planned a special breakfast for him!
It is half a tomato with the middle carved out, so you should have a hollow half a tomato. Then I’m going to fill it with scrambled eggs, green sweet pepper, and a little bit of salt and pepper. He loves pork sausages and so as an extra special treat I will add that too with toast and bacon.
Also, I will bring him his breakfast in bed with a tray. I always go out in the garden to get him the prettiest flowers in sight and I sing happy birthday to him in the father’s day version.
Sometimes he also gets a gift. A lot of people buy gifts and I do sometimes, but I also make gifts because nothing is better than something that comes from the heart.
There are a lot of things to make but I like to make him coupons for all his favourite things like golf, or a fancy dinner, or even a hug – but he doesn’t need a coupon for that.
Stuart Bostock is certainly not a couch potato in the kitchen either! Below is one of his recipes he cooks for the family.
