Menu: Happy Farter's Day

So, last year with my two boys we planned a special holiday just after Father's Day which was named Farter's Day. If you have been exposed to children of a certain age, I am sure that you can guess what this entailed.

We hosted a party for my in-laws and ensured there was enough Bean-o to go around. Whoopie cushions were given to any attendee who was still young enough to enjoy it. Baked beans and cruciferous vegetables were enjoyed by all. Needless to say, this family holiday went over so well that we are planning on doing it again this year.

The menu is in constant flux but will include some or all of the following:

  • Baked beans with ham hocks and smoked jowls
  • Brussel sprouts with bacon
  • Cabbage Roll casserole
  • Crudites (Broccoli, Cauliflower, et al) with hummus
  • Cheese and implements for cutting said cheese
  • Bread with cold cuts and mustard (for cutting said mustard)
This year, we are introducing an interesting wrinkle. Rice. It seems that rice is the only starch that does not break down into flatus. Seems weird to me and I will have to check into it more fully. That will be served for those that do not and never will fart and prefer to have gentle winds stirring their loins and small puffs of spring time air.
