  • Matt is the perfect candidate!!!

November 3: National Men Make Dinner Day
Thursday, Nov. 3 is National Men Make Dinner Day--a day created to encourage men who are not typically in the kitchen.
According to the website describing the holiday, recipes and ideas from men who already cook, are welcomed. However, this holiday is truly designed for those who are a bit more intimidated by the kitchen.
A few important rules described on the site include:
  • The main meal must include a minimum of four ingredients and require at least one cooking utensil other than a fork.
  • Men must go shopping for all necessary ingredients. Bonus points if he takes inventory of cupboards and fridge first, so you don't end up with two 64 ounce jars of pickled pimentos.
  • Men must create the meal unassisted. The family should stay away from the kitchen (unless the smoke detector goes off).
  • Wearing an apron is optional, but bonus points are given if the recipe includes one of the following: capers, saffron, or the word 'scallopini'.
  • Men set the table, and pour the beverages. No ketchup bottles, sour cream containers, or big boxes of salt on the table.
  • Men must also clear the table before being given access to the TV remote.

10. While cooking, you can still wear your tool belt, simply replace the hammer with a whisk.
9. Several recipes include beer as a legitimate ingredient.
8. The blender, the electric mixer and the food processor are loud enough to drown out anyone in the house who is learning a musical instrument.
7. Whoever is cooking always gets the most attention from the dog.
6. Whatever recipe you choose, you can name it after yourself. Example: tonight’s dinner is called ‘Doug’s Surprise’.
5. Discovering that ‘250 ml’ is the same as ‘8 ounces’ AND ‘1 cup’ is half the fun.
4. Since YOU choose the recipe, it can be a turnip-free night.
3. Some desserts, such as crème brulee, require the use of a propane torch. How much fun is that?!
2. Since other husbands in your neighbourhood are also cooking dinner, ironically this could be the ultimate male bonding experience
1. Participating in ‘National Men Make Dinner Day’ gives you optimum points with your wife. Use those points wisely!

Will your Hubby participate today???
