Chef Andre Stops By to Help Us With Father’s Day Menus

Today on GetRealLive we had our favorite Chef, Andre Carthen drop in and help us figure out a great Father’s Day Menu. This helped me out a lot because my hubby, who is a total foodie, decided that since the Japanese Restaurant of his choice isn’t open this Sunday…. he would like to eat at home. When he said this I instantly thought, “I have to talk to Andre’. How was I ever going to please my hubby’s extraordinary palate with some of the ‘norms’ that I have been creating. I needed to pull out the gold and dazzle him with some new and exciting treats that would stimulate any seasoned and knowledgeable foodie.

So, with Andre in the mix I have a few options that I know will please my hubby. Also, these are things the kids can get involved in, which is really fun. Below are a few suggestions for Father’s Day and other events. To hear more, click on the media player and listen to today’s show:

Mini Cheese Cakes * Pulled Pork Sliders * Roasted Red Pepper Soup * Mini Chipoltle Cupcakes

These are just some of the ideas that Andre shared with us. Additionally, because my hubby loves shell fish we will have a crab and lobster fiesta happening throughout the day. I asked Andre for some new and exciting sides for our shellfish and he suggested a curried coleslaw with sun raisins. Ooooohhhhh Good!

Needless to say, the panic I was experiencing when my hubby first suggested Father’s Day lunch at home has now subsided. A conversation with Andre on GetRealLive always makes a difference. I am now armed and ready to create a Father’s Day to remember but first I’m hosting a ‘Mumma Needs Wine Night’ this Thursday. This night is all about us Mum’s celebrating the end of the school year, who knows maybe we will sit around a firepit and burn brown paper lunch bags in celebration (just kidding but not a bad idea). Then on Friday night I have 13 – 11 year old boys at my house for a Paintball/Sleepover Birthday for my son. What next? Oh yes, the following weekend we have my 7 year old’s Art Birthday Party………

All I can say today is THANK THE LORD ALMIGHTY for my Friend and Go to Man when it comes to Food and Entertaining, CHEF ANDRE CARTHEN.
