|(My Dad singing at one of the plays)|
The question is therefore, what does Father's Day mean to you? Father’s Day in my family is a day to say thank you to my dad for all his hard work and love that he has given to us through the years. As I grew up in Queens, New York in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s there was nothing more important to my dad than his family. But, there is something that came to a close second and that is sports of all kinds. His favorite is Baseball and Bowling. I can remember many a days when the radio or TV had a game playing. Every once in a while you would hear a scream coming from the living room and you knew that his favorite team the Mets just got a home run! Now I don’t follow any sports but my brothers did and when my son came along my dad began teaching him all about sports.

“Sausage & Peppers, with Onions & Summer Squash”
2 green peppers, seeded & cut into 1" strips
2 yellow peppers, seeded & cut into 1" strips
1 red pepper, seeded & cut into 1" strips
2 onions, cut into 1 inch wedges
1 yellow summer squash cut in rounds
1/4 cup of olive oil or as needed
2 tablespoons of Oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 to 2 lbs of Italian style pork sausage-with or without fennel seeds (the amount of sausage depends on how many people that are eating)
To achieve optimum results, pierce or stick each link of sausage two or three times with a fork, so they will cook through. Now grill your sausages over a moderate flame for about 25 minutes, rotating them often with tongs, or until the internal temperature reaches 175°F. Peppers, onions, and summer squash are the perfect garnish for sausages. Add olive oil, oregano, salt and black pepper to the veggies and stir to coat evenly. Use a stainless steel grid to grill the veggies over a medium-high flame, or put veggies in aluminum foil. Use tongs to stir the peppers, onions, and squash as they cook through, and browned. A little bit of color on the sausages and the veggies will make this dish more desirable and will enhance the flavor. Your vegetables should be still firm, and no traces of pink should remain in the sausage. Serve hot, with bread or a tossed salad.
