Father's Day 2010

This Father's Day was all about food.  I decided to make homemade doughnuts for breakfast using this recipe from Real Simple Magazine.  It was so easy, I felt like I had cheated some how.  The doughnuts came out perfectly and we ate them right up while they were warm.  Yes, we each had 2 doughnuts and doughnuts holes.

After our yummy breakfast we decided to head to Palo Alto to walk around and have lunch.  We had eyed Slider Bar Cafe about a month ago when we were out on a date night.  Since then, we've been wanting to try it.  

The idea is to try a bunch of different slider burgers.  They have breakfast burgers/wraps, vegetarian sliders, chicken sliders, pulled pork sliders, kobe beef sliders, hot dog sliders.  Pretty much anything you can think of they have.  We decided to try a breakfast slider (which is the wrap in the photo), a vegetarian slider, and a few chicken and kobe beef sliders.  They have a few different fry options too.  We wanted garlic fries and sweet potato fries, but they were out of sweet potatoes.  So we went with regular and garlic fries.  The burgers were delicious, but the fries were my favorite part.  Though I am known to have a fry weakness.  

Last but not least, they have a variety of beers on tap and wines by the 1/2 glass, glass and bottle.  They were having a $6.00 pitcher world cup special while we were there.  However, we didn't partake in it.
It's fun for the whole family!
