Men Make Dinner Day

Date When Celebrated : First Thursday in November

National Men Make Dinner Day was created  for two reasons. First, it is to give the ladies a break from the cooking chores. Secondly, it seeks to encourage men who do not cook, to learn to cook, beginning by making a meal on this day. Of course, even men who do cook, should celebrate this day by making a meal. For the experienced male cook, we encourage you to make something challenging.

It is also called Make Your Wife Dinner Day.

Okay guys, be a sport. Give the ladies in your life a break. Set them in their favorite chair in the living room, put a glass of wine in their hands, and tune the Tv to their favorite "Chick Flick". Then, grab a beer, find a recipe and make dinner all by yourself!

Here are a few Do's and Don'ts for making the meal:

  • The Golden Rule: Women can not assist in the meal. Rookie male cooks need to do it all by themselves, to gain a sense of accomplishment.

  • No take out or prepared foods are allowed

  • No grilling. After all, you've been telling yourself for years, that grilling is Man's turf.

  • If you've never cooked before, make it simple. If you like to cook, do something challenging.

  • Prepare something that the ladies will like.

  • The meal must include a dessert. May we suggest easy to make jello? Add a dollop of whipped cream and a cherry.

  • You must clean up all the pots pans and mixing bowls used in preparing the meal.

Why Should Men Cook Today?

  • Because you love your wife or partner.

  • To broaden your horizon and skill set.

  • To score points!

Origin of Men Make Dinner Day:

The creators of this day is not known. Nor, is the date when it originated. Our research suggest that this special day may have originated fairly recently.
