Kiss The Cook!

It’s Thanksgiving and, if you and your woman are hosting tonight’s feast, that means she’s likely going to be working hard in the kitchen most of the day. One, that is itself something to be grateful for. Two, kiss the cook – often and with intent.

Kiss The Cook!

You might also want to consider that pie – nudge, nudge, wink, wink – isn’t just an after dinner treat and won’t spoil your dinner. 😉

Separately, you might just ask yourself why you’re not in the kitchen too, helping make Thanksgiving dinner. C’mon, Gentlemen! Cooking is a basic life skill, not merely something controlled by gender roles.

Sunday Dinner

Sunday Dinner – Make It Great Again

Yes! The majority of Americans want to see our nation reborn and renewed and restored. We want to America great again. And, while there’s a plethora of opinions upon what exactly this restored greatness would look like, few disagree with the fact that, if America is to be made great again, then American culture and values must be restored to their previous importance and prominence.

Well, it’s not just charity that begins at home, it’s proper action and righteousness as well. In other words, we need to clean our own houses first and pull the logs out of our own eyes before we can expect to enact real change upon society as a whole. A good place to start would be with the Sunday dinner – or supper if you prefer.

The Sunday dinner used to be ubiquitous in American culture. While based upon the Sabbath, even irreligious families would come together once a week to sit down to a big meal and just be together. Often extended family members or family friends without family of their own nearby would join in the fun. No matter what though, parents and kids sat down for one family meal every week.

We really need to restore this tradition. It’ll go a long way towards making America great again because at the heart of it American greatness is, was, and shall be based upon the greatness of the American family.
