National Men Make Dinner Day is observed annually on first Thursday in November. This is the day for men to take charge in the kitchen and cook for their loved ones.
Some men like to cook and do so on a regular basis. To those men, kudos to you! You can submit your favorite recipe on the National Men Make Dinner website.
This day was created for the men who do not know their way around the kitchen and are not familiar with cooking appliances, as well as for the women in their lives who need a break.
Men need to be aware that there is a list of rules that must be followed, some of which include:
- The main meal must include a minimum of 4 ingredients and require at least one cooking utensil other than a fork.
- The man goes shopping for all necessary ingredients.
- Clean up as you go.
- Aprons are optional.
For a list of complete rules, see the above-mentioned website.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Have the men in the house prepare a meal and use #MenMakeDinnerDay to post on social media.
National Men Make Dinner Day was created by Sandy Sharkey in 2001.
