Instead of buying Dad a gift that he can't use or don't need, we got him a starwberry pie instead. I asked Dad if he want a slice of the pie when he arrived and he said yes, so I cut him one. I can tell that he enjoyed it because he didn't stop until he was done with it.
My father-in-law has a sweet tooth so he enjoys this kind of treat. I think he would live on dessert if he could lol.
