This is the twelfth and final day of "Lucy's 12 Christmas Treats" offer! We are giving away one hardcover edition of "Italian Grill" by Mario Batali (click on the title for a complete description).
If there's one thing as great as having a mom who can't seem to tear herself away from the kitchen, its having a dad who is practically glued to the grill! This has been my fortunate situation growing up in a household that enjoys their food.
My dad just loves to grill anything he can get his hands on (well, mostly everything). He will find every and any excuse to grill. He once decided to throw an impromptu party and grill some burgers, hot dogs, and some fish and shrimp for a few of his buddies and our family one April Fool's Day. As a joke, we got him an apron with the print of a curvaceous female body in a bikini plastered in the front. My dad is a big guy (a lot like Mario Batali--he also has longish hair and a beard) with a great sense of humor so he gamely wore the apron, and bore our ribbing all throughout the party. I remember he once said that Mario Batali is the kind of cook that he could respect because he looks like he really enjoys his food!
I adore my dad. I think he is one of the jolliest, kindest, and funniest people I've ever known (and will get to know). When you make your suggestion, think about what it is about your dad that you love the most!
Italian Grill by Mario Batali is published by Harper Collins! Special thanks to them for this treat!
We'll be announcing the winner tomorrow (December 24, 2010). Good luck everybody and have fun!
