NATIONAL MEN MAKE DINNER DAY
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.
Some men like to cook and do so on a regular basis. To those men, kudos to you! You can submit your favorite recipe on the National Men Make Dinner website.
This 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.
For a list of complete rules, see the above-mentioned website.
HOW TO OBSERVE #MenMakeDinnerDay
Have the men in the house prepare a meal and use #MenMakeDinnerDay to post on social media.
NATIONAL MEN MAKE DINNER DAY HISTORY
Sandy Sharkey created National Men Make Dinner Day in 2001.
NATIONAL CANINE LYMPHOMA AWARENESS DAY
On November 7th, National Canine Lymphoma Awareness Day educates and creates awareness about canine lymphoma.
Well-known and respected dog agility trainer and competitor, Terry Simons, was devastated when his “heart and soul” dog was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2011. As an educated dog owner, Terry did all he could for Reveille. However, he soon discovered how elusive accurate information regarding options and treatment could be. Soon, Terry connected with professionals. They helped him choose the best path for his beloved companion.
Reveille not only competed in dog agility throughout her treatment but thrived. She even attained the best agility year of her career. When Terry chose to let Reveille go, he knew he was making the right decision for her. Grief does strange things. It can destroy, and it can inspire. Reveille inspired Terry to form a foundation. In Reveille’s honor, Terry created CLEAR (Canine Lymphoma Education Awareness and Research). The foundation dedicates its efforts to providing information, resources, and research into the devastating disease. Reveille’s legacy ensures dog owners know their options. They become empowered advocates of their four-legged family members.
HOW TO OBSERVE #CanineLymphomaAwarenessDay
Learn more about canine lymphoma. Donate to research. Improve treatment options. Help create a clear path to care. Use #CanineLymphomaAwarnessDay to share on social media.
NATIONAL CANINE AWARENESS DAY HISTORY
Terry Simons founded National Canine Lymphoma Day in 2015 to spread information regarding canine lymphoma. His beloved dog, Reveille, inspired him to create CLEAR.
CLEAR – Canine Lymphoma Education Awareness and Research dedicates its efforts to increase awareness of canine lymphoma. Through education, we empower dog owners. Through research, we look for a cure for this devastating disease.
It is all about education and awareness, which is available in the award-winning documentary on canine lymphoma, My Friend: Changing the Journey (Best Documentary Feature – Los Angeles Movie Awards and Best Educational Documentary – Bare Bones International Film and Music Festival).
The Registrar at National Day Calendar® declared that it would be held annually on November 7.
NATIONAL BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE WITH ALMONDS DAY
On November 7th, National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day ushers in one of the more healthful ways to enjoy chocolate.
Recent studies reveal health benefits from eating small quantities of bittersweet chocolate. The addition of almonds increases health benefits as well. Pairing the two of them together gives us a delicious and healthful snack. Make them a part of your lunch or enjoy them as part of an afternoon snack.
In 1742, Eliza Smith included the only chocolate recipe in her cookbook The Compleat Housewife printed by William Parks. The simple recipe combined grated chocolate, orange flower water, and sugar.
When combining chocolate and almonds, remember that both keep well, too. So, sharing during the holidays is easy. Make a little or a lot of a recipe to spread the holiday cheer when using bittersweet chocolate with almonds.
HOW TO OBSERVE #BittersweetChocolateWithAlmondsDay
Chocolate and almonds can improve just about any day. Try one of the recipes below. Make enough to share or invite friends to get creative with chocolate recipes in your kitchen. It’s an excellent way to #CelebrateEveryDay.
