It takes a real man to cook for his wife a meal she actually enjoys eating. In fact, if you cook for your whole family it is indeed a path to the highest on the “mancard” you could possibly expect to achieve. Bringing the family together is what men should do. Cooking is part of nurturing others. Why let the lady of house do all the heavy lifting in this area?
The gold-premium level mancard is reserved for the guys who can do more than open up a bag dry pasta, boil, and pour on Prego red sauce. It requires the very technical balance of making a salad with the right balance of sweetness, acid, salt, and crunch. Get your raspberry vinaigrette spot on and you win! My son may not cheer me on this one, but he learns to see what its like to make a woman smile.
