It’s National Men Make Dinner Day!

It’s National Men Make Dinner Day!

National Men Make Dinner Day!

You already know that the first Tuesday of November is Election Day, but the first Thursday of November may just trump that in the hearts and minds of all you coupled-up women out there: it’s National Men Make Dinner Day! The people behind the movement explain that the ideal participant of NMMDD is a man who: “helps with household chores, has a sense of humour and is a great all-around guy [who] loves his wife/girlfriend, kids and pets…BUT NEVER LEARNED HOW TO COOK, and is somewhat afraid of the idea.” In case your man needs some persuading, the NMMDD has a list of the top ten reasons guys should participate, including “Several recipes include beer as a legitimate ingredient,” and “Whoever is cooking always gets the most attention from the dog.” But what about you? While most of you probably love the idea of your husband or boyfriend donning an apron and rolling up his sleeves in the kitchen, you may have a few concerns — like what to do if his meal sucks — so after the jump, the people behind NMMDD answer a few Frequently Asked Questions to put your mind at ease…
OK, guys, go make dinner for the woman, man, or children in your life. Really. Just cook something they will like, do the best you can, and they'll love you for the effort.

Unfortunately, it's almost always "man makes dinner day" in my house, at least whenever there is cooking to be done.
