What a great idea for Father's Day! No more boring ties or coffee mugs. I buy an empty pickle barrel from Firehouse Subs, and they donate the proceeds from those sales back to local firefighters. Then I fill it with chips, candy, DVDs, cigars, socks, ink pens; a variety of little things both useful and tasty!

I've been saving this gift idea for my husband for the most appropriate time... a GPS system. I pray that this saves us (I mean him) time and GAS over the coming months!

cool no bake cake

1 (10 3/4 oz) pound cake
1 (3 oz) box instant pudding
1 cup cool whip
fruit (I use 2 bananas and 4 large strawberries)


chilled chocolate syrup

Slice pound cake into several slices about an inch thick. Prepare pudding according to directions. Mix pudding with cool whip. Chop fruit (into slices.)

Layer cake, fruit and a little less than 1/2 of pudding into a loaf pan. Then top cake with remaining pudding.

Place in fridge for about 2 hours. (When chilled, decorate if desired.) I top mine with trimmed strawberries in each of the corners and a few mint sprigs underneath the strawberry.

Use the chilled chocolate syrup to write a message on top of the cake. This is a great cake for dad and the kids to make for mom or vise versa.

If these men are churchgoers, they might appreciate something like tie clips?
Perhaps lapel pins? The dollar store might have these things priced inexpensively.
