My brother was in town for a wedding this weekend and it nicely coincided with Father's day. So we had a nice celebration, as a cousin was also in town and a seminarian my mother knows was also visiting. My mom pre-grilled vegetables in the morning while my brother was driving back from PA. I got to the folks' house around 4 and we watched the end of the France-Honduras World Cup game.

made the culinary poppy seed joke before, but he opted for these.) The recipe is from The Vegan Cookie Connoiseur, which is great because it uses such simple ingredients. These were very easy to make and people liked them.
It was a lovely day. Today is also my dad's birthday (and Bloomsday!) so many happy returns to him. He has always been a strong but gentle and positive force in my life, and I'm realizing that and appreciating it more as I get older. Thank you for everything, Poppy.
