For the past several years, I’ve always made Croque Madame on Father’s Day. It’s for my husband, not my dad (RIP). The husband loves anything with fried eggs.
The Croque Madame is my little contribution for the day. The rest is up to the big guy himself and the kids. In most years, he would want an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner. My daughter and I have a running joke about his once-a-year garbage meal. Because that’s our snooty perception of what buffets are. Aren’t they? No? It’s just a joke, okay?!
Her dad, meanwhile, along with her brother, thinks buffets are grand. Quantity, in their view, makes up for quality. Truth be told, there are items on a buffet line sometimes that are quite desirable. I do appreciate the unlimited salad bar and the chocolate fountain.
Last year we couldn’t give the husband the buffet dinner because all buffet restaurants were shuttered. So I think I know what he’ll be asking for next Sunday. Though secretly, the daughter and I are hoping that he won’t.
