When I first read this, I thought it was “Make Men Dinner Day” and I got super excited because I figured someone would be making me dinner. Alas, that’s not the case, but I am excited cook out for my homies and celebrate this special day (that I’ve never heard of).
Gents, it’s time to don your apron, and only your apron, and show this kitchen what we’re made of.
According to the official website (which can be found below),
National Men Make Dinner Day is designed for the men of the house who aren’t so culinarily inclined. You know, the assholes who come home, microwave some leftovers and call it a night. Well, tonight’s your night to shine.
The official website states,
If you are a guy who is completely lost in the kitchen, and thinks a chafing dish sounds like something painful, this day IS for you.
Officially celebrated on the FIRST THURSDAY OF EVERY NOVEMBER, National Men Make Dinner Day is what memories are made of. Keep your sense of humor handy along with your frying pan and who knows, this could be the start of something beautiful. Or charred.
Either way, the people you love will be guaranteed ONE meal cooked by YOU, on ONE very special day a year!
I do actually enjoy cooking (and pretty much whip up my own lunch every weekday), so maybe Men Make Dinner Day isn’t for me. However, I will definitely be taking the opportunity tonight to prepare a full English Breakfast, wearing nothing but an apron. If I pop a boner, so what, I just really love cooking. My roommates usually eat some leftovers or get take out from down the street, so I’m going to use this opportunity to give them a culinary experience they’ll never forget.
Ladies, if you’re reading (which you’re probably not), remind that special man in your life that tonight is his night to shine. Tell him to find a recipe he likes after he’s done setting his fantasy football lineup this afternoon, stop at Ralph’s on the way home from work and pick up all the ingredients to make this evening’s dinner one you two will probably want to forget. (Gents, if you really don’t want to cook, just do everything half as good as you normally would… then, she’ll get so frustrated with you she’ll either take over completely or you’ll just wind up microwaving the leftovers you were going to anyway).
