Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s of the world. We don’t express our feelings to our dads mostly, but there’s hardly anything we can do without them. Like they say ” When all else fails, call dad!”
This father’s day just say it to him, how much he means to you and make it extra special for him. My father is the best father in the whole world, I know everyone says that but he really really is. He has been there throughout supporting and encouraging me to whatever I ever wanted to do. He encouraged me to go for all those crazy ideas that I ever had and I’m glad I did!
Being a father to his 3 daughters, he never felt his daughter’s are less than any son. Be it education, hobbies, future planning, hardships of life or anything, he has been my support system all in all. This father’s day I not only said it to my father how much I love him, but also shared this with so many others who wanted to say the same to their fathers. All this through my Father’s day Chocolate Bouquets and Chocolate Date Truffles
I just love doing this, making other happy, sharing love and bringing smiles. It brings so much joy to me, its amazing. While that’s what I did for clients, for my father I planned to make it special for him this Father’s Day. My father likes Savory Food, so it had to be the same and that’s when I came up with the idea of making Baked Chicken Cheese Discs.
If you’ve been following my blog and reading my posts, I shared a Creamy Chicken & Spinach Bake recipe here. I improvised this recipe and turned it into these delicious, crispy and cheesy discs. I’m sure you’ll love these!
And the best thing about them is, you can fill up with your choice of filling and enjoy it as you fancy. Plus, these make a perfect Appetizer and Party Food. So, please your guests with this delicious appetizer.
