The first Thursday in November has been dubbed “National Men Make Dinner Day.” Its no big deal for the guys at 107.9 The Link.

 

Matt Harris from the Matt & Ramona Show says he makes dinner about once a week. Super Todd from the Bob and Sheri Show says that as a single dad, dinner is his job 7 days a week. That’s why he’s become the self-proclaimed “King of the Crock-Pot.”

 

You’ll find M& R Producer, Brent “Bandy Boo” O’Brien cooks about 5 days a week. You might want to try his Buffalo Chicken Bake. It sounds delish!

Matt's favorite Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki can be found here! 

And our own Kary 'Doc' Bowser is going to give these Buttermilk Fried Chicken Tenders a try!

Rule #10: Man sets table, candles are lit, beverages are poured, no ketchup bottles, sour cream containers, or big boxes of salt on table.

Rule #11: Spouse and/or family members are served! This is an opportune time for a photo. Man is 'allowed' to gloat no more than three times during the meal. Family is encouraged to congratulate man on job well done. Family dog is not allowed to be secretly fed man's cooking.

Rule #12: After meal, table is cleared by man, dishwasher is loaded. Man returns to table for stimulating after-dinner conversation. At this point, man is told how much his meal was appreciated.
