This year, Father’s Day and the Summer Solstice fall on the same day of the year. Summer Solstice is the official start of summer, and the “longest day of the year” (the day with the longest period of daylight). This means you’ll have plenty of time to celebrate your father!! Make the most of this daylight by packing up a picnic basket and heading outdoors to your favorite spot. Click here for some recipe ideas from the Cooking Fresh cookbook. Be sure to check out this article on the solstice and how to celebrate it!
Camping is a tried-and-true way to spend quality time with Dad. This Father’s Day, take him on a camping expedition both of you will never forget. No one wants to spend all day cooking when you could be enjoying the outdoors, so try these quick and easy “Potato Hobo Packs,” which can be made for either breakfast or dinner. Don’t forget to make s’mores, the most important part of any camping trip.
We at Old Farmer’s Almanac hope you have an unforgettable Father’s Day!
