It’s National Men Make Dinner Day! Read all about it!

National Men Make Dinner Day on the first Thursday in November places the man of the house in charge of the kitchen and the evening’s meal.

I will be the first to admit, I am not much for cooking.  While I like to do it, I am not all that accomplished in the feat of making a delicious meal for the family.  I can make meatloaf, spaghetti, killer Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese and a pretty goodLasagna, Peg Mackay style.

So my Mom’s recipe…Ragu Meat Flavored Sauce, Lasagna noodles, a pound of ground beef, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese…layer it 3-4 times…cook in the oven.  They won’t be calling me Chef Mackay anytime soon!

Here is some info on this special day!

National Men Make Dinner Day 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 the necessary ingredients.
  • Clean up as you go.
  • Aprons are optional.


Some men like to cook and do so on a regular basis. To those men, kudos to you!
