What’s the deal with Fathers Day and ties? Does anyone actually buy their dad a tie for Father’s Day? It must be the most disappointing gift of all time. I always wonder about those husbands that get their wives gifts like brooms and aprons. Talk about a disappointing gift. What is the message behind that? Get in the kitchen and make me some dinner, woman!
In all fairness, though, I frequently give my husband tools as gifts, for which the unspoken message is clearly Fix my air conditioning before I strangle you in your sleep! He never seems to mind. Either that, or he’s ignoring me. But, what is the unspoken message behind the necktie? I took it upon myself to come up with a few ideas.
- Please dress like you care.
- Don’t ever wear that tie your mother gave you.
- You’re going to need to work harder to look like you deserve me.
- Things you hate make me happy.
The men in my life are fortunate that I prefer baking cookies to purchasing neckties. While I’m certain there are some fabulous neckties out there, I believe most men get more excited about food. Below are my guys’ favorite cookies, in honor of Father’s Day.
1. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, my dad’s favorite. He had a hard time choosing, because he basically likes everything.
2. Cherries Jubilee Cookies, my husband’s favorite. I think he mostly likes this cookie because he likes actual Cherries Jubilee so well.
3. Toffee Almond Cookies, my husband’s close second favorite. He likes a cookie that you can dunk in milk, and this a perfect one for that.
4. Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies, my brother’s favorite. His adoration of all things peanut butter is the stuff of legends.
5. Triple Chocolate Chunk Oreo Cookies, my other brother’s favorite. Any cookie with chocolate and chunks is the right one for him.
Trust me, ladies. Skip the neckties this year, and bake cookies instead. Your dads will thank you.
