            "Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father." — Lydia M. Child

Father's Day Want to really make Dad's Day? If you're looking for ideas for the kids to do for their dad, we picked up some pretty good ones from Hallmark that we'd like to share with you:
  • You've Been Framed: Gather photographs of dad from childhood to the present, and frame them all together in a photo collage. (An alternate option is to frame pictures of him as a child alongside pictures of his own children at about the same age.)

  • The Way to His Heart: Have a theme party based on the food you're serving. Example: For "A Steak-Out," you'll serve steak (what else?) and plan an activity like a "whodunit" game or send dad on a scavenger hunt to find his gifts. Or, have a "Hooked on Dad" party and serve seafood. Decorate with an ocean theme, make it a pool party, you get the idea. (Make sure everyone at the party tells him at least once that he's the catch of the day.)

  • From the Tool Box: For the handyman dad, have the kids make him a new tool box. Decorate a shoebox to use as the "tool box." Then make him tools out of poster board or construction paper (laminate it if you like). Write little quips for dad on the tools, like: Saw ? "You're the best Dad I ever SAW." Hammer ? "My Dad is waaaay tougher than nails."

  • Nuts & Bolts: "I love when Dad gets a little nutty." Pliers ? "Nothing can pull me away from my Dad." On the outside of the tool box, write "For the Best Dad Ever Built."

  • Just Like Daddy: Dress up the kids in Dad's clothes. (The bigger, the better.) Take a photograph of them, have it enlarged and write the caption, "I wanna be just like you, Daddy!"

  • Pennant Winner: Make a pennant from fabric or paper. Use fabric paint or markers to write Dad ? I'm Your Biggest Fan!

  • Dear Dad: A nice activity for older kids ? have them write Dad a letter thanking him for everything he's taught them and describing the most important things they've learned from him.

  • Following in Your Footsteps: Great for babies and toddlers ? place their footprints on good quality paper that you can frame. Add a caption that says, "Following in My Daddy's Footsteps." (Make sure you date it.)

                    Home Bistro Low Carb Frozen Meals

Home Bistro
A year and a half ago, Low Carb Luxury did a review of the wonderful frozen low carb meals from Home Bistro. (Here's a link to that review.) Since that time, their meals have never gotten anything but better, and now that they've added new low carb options and even induction meals, we felt it was time for an update.

Home Bistro Low Carb Szechuan Beef The new meals we tried were
Low Carb Roasted Turkey Breast with Cranberry Stuffing (turkey breast in a delicious pan gravy, served with low-carb cranberry stuffing and slivered French green beans with almonds), Grilled Chicken Breast in Caper Parmesan Sauce (Grilled boneless chicken breast in a rich cream sauce made with white wine, capers, smoked bacon, and Parmesan cheese, served with broccoli and red peppers), Szechuan Beef (strips of beef seasoned with soy sauce, sesame seed oil, garlic and ginger in a Szechuan sauce accented with toasted sesame seeds and crushed red pepper, served with broccoli and red peppers), Buffalo Shrimp Appetizer (Jumbo shrimp topped with a spicy-hot ?Buffalo-style? sauce made with aged cayenne red pepper and garlic), and their two new low carb desserts: Dark Chocolate Mousse, and Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake.

Home Bistro Low Carb Roasted Turkey Breast with Cranberry Stuffing The delight of the bunch was the low-carb cranberry stuffing that comes with the Roasted Turkey Breast dinner. It's simply delightful, very different, and doesn't taste low carb at all. We'd love to see them sell this one as a stand-alone side dish. It would be great to have on-hand for any poultry or pork dinner side dish.

The Caper Parmesan Cream Sauce that envelops the Grilled Chicken Breast dinner was also heaven. The smoked bacon and Parmesan cheese bring this one to rich life!

Home Bistro Low Carb Buffalo Shrimp Appetizer All of their new meals were big hits. And the Buffalo Shrimp were remarkably easy to make for such an elegant appetizer. Still boil-in-bag, these meals are all pretty easy and fast to make and the result is definitely restaurant quality. With a little creative plating, your guests might think their meal was chef-catered.

Net carb counts on these items are 13g for the Turkey Dinner, 6g for the Szechuan Beef, 4 g for the Chicken Breast in Caper Parmesan Sauce, and 0g for the Induction Level Buffalo Shrimp Appetizer. Pretty impressive numbers for the food you get!

Home Bistro Low Carb Dark Chocolate Mousse And then... dessert! How smart are these portion controlled little mousses and cheesecakes? Very... and delicious too. Packed 6 to a box, they're very easy to serve and oh-so-elegant.

Dress them up with a drizzle of low carb syrup, top with whipped cream or sprinkle with chopped nuts. Even dress them up with berries if you like. But even totally plain they are the stars of their plates.

At 6g net carbs for the Dark Chocolate Mousse and 5g net carbs for the Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake, you won't have to worry about dessert sabotaging your efforts.
Home Bistro Low Carb Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake
Each meal is sealed and flash-frozeng at precisely the right moment to seal in flavor and juices. All Home Bistro? orders are shipped in insulated coolers with enough dry ice to guarantee freshness upon delivery and that it will keep until you get home. Kudos to the talented chefs at Home Bistro for their latest efforts. We loved 'em!

They're available from Home Bistro's website and are delivered still frozen right to your door. Prices are reasonable, and service is great.
