Greeting Card Campaign: 11-7 National Men Make Dinner Day

Click here to download Men Make Dinner Day card!
Some sadist has officially set aside November 7 as Men Make Dinner Day. Apparently this applies only to "Non-Cooking Men", effectively turning millions of rank amateurs loose in the kitchen. It seems some wives out there wanted not only a break, but also for their men to experience how tough it was to work in the kitchen. I have no problem with that. Why not let the men whip up some culinary delight with no help from family members? A little charcoal in the diet is good for you I understand. Also, in a just plain act of cruelty, barbecuing is not allowed on Men Make Dinner. 

Now, I cook myself and enjoy it thoroughly. I bought myself some manly kitchen tools for myself and I cook my way! This blog has a bunch of my recipes that I've actually cooked and posted pictures of. I'm a huge advocate of manly cooking and have taken over most of the meal preparation at home. I figure it will take me something like 40 more years to catch up with the number of meals my Sweet Baboo has done over the years, but I don't mind doing equal time. And I won't even make her take over repairing the toilet when it gets clogged or broken. I'll even wash my hands after I repair the toilet and BEFORE I cook supper. I'm that kind of thoughtful husband.

Celebrate Men Make Dinner Day today with this free downloadable Men Make Dinner Day card. Just click on the caption below the picture of the flaming man cook above.  The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs.  Download the file. Don't try to print the file from within Google Docs. I use a lot of fonts and Google Docs doesn't seem to like them very much.  Instead, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "download" and copy the file to your own computer. Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you prefer.  Print the card from there and it should be fine.

This is a side fold card, so when you print it, be sure to select "landscape" and if you have two-sided printing, choose "flip on the short side" so that the inside of the card is the same way up as the outside. 

Good luck with dinner and take my advice. Be ready with a restaurant in mind in case the kitchen goes up in flames.
