National Men Make Dinner Day (with Aubry)
Hey current and prospective King’s students!
For those of you who don’t know, November 3rd was National Men Make Dinner Day, and yours truly was tasked with blogging about making dinner. Yes, it apparently is a real thing, but we’ll get to that later. As it turns out, November 3rd was also National Sandwich Day, so I decided to make, you guessed it, hamburger soup. Kidding, I made sandwiches. But I made fancy sandwiches. One might even say they were fanwiches.
I decided to go with a bacon and egg sandwich with arugula and tomato, as well as a tomato jam because I am a huge breakfast for dinner enthusiast. I picked up the bread from a bakery near our house and got to work assembling. It turned out really well. You can see a picture of one above!
Anyways, the whole point of National Men Make Dinner Day is to encourage men to make dinner for themselves, their families and their friends, and to fight the stereotype that guys can’t or shouldn’t cook. Guys, cooking isn’t that hard, and it’s actually pretty fun. The best part is, you just have to practice. We really shouldn’t need a national day to encourage guys to cook dinner, we should just do it. Anyways that’s just my two cents.
If you ever need help prepping dinners or just want to look up fun recipes, check out some of the sites below!
- All Recipes is fantastic. They really do have all the recipes. If you ever need something quick for dinner they can definitely help.
- Guys, do not be afraid of Pinterest. They have so many great recipes to try and they always turn out amazing.
- Also, check out Jamie Oliver's recipes because who doesn't want an amazing British person showing them how to cook.
- Lastly, Martha Stewart really knows what she's talking about. The best part about her recipes is that she has videos teaching you how to cook alongside her.
