Recently I have seen a number of tweet about dads cooking. Yesterday there was Pulled Pork and Chicken Parmesan. I have a number of recipes on my blog and cook all the time. I especially love cooking with my daughter from rice crispy squares to ‘Turtlellini’ her name for tortellini. I thought a contest to show that dads can cook would be a cool idea. Moms are welcome to. I would like to run this contest again with different themes in the future.
Last Nights #DadsTalking chat was about date nights and one of the question was about what food our wives liked. For my wife anything seafood is going to be a hit. Scallops are quite high on the list and also happen to be a seafood that I will eat that’s not standard Fish and Chips. So that is quite often what I cook for her on special occasions. So this weeks contest will be to create a date night dinner for your wife (or husband for the moms). Take a picture of it, artistry will count and blog about with the recipe. Sell me on the dish.
First up there are no prizes involved in this just the recognition of a job well done.
- Cook something that meets the topic theme. In this case something your wife would like for a Date Night Dinner. (Moms: Something your husband would like.)
- Take a picture of it.
- Post a blog post with the picture, the recipe and a short blurb about why it fits the theme or what makes it so good.
- Use the linky tool below to enter the contest.
This contest will run until midnight Friday Sept 9th and I will choose the winner over the weekend. I look forward to everyones creativity and some new ideas for dinner.

cool, sounds like a fun thing to do over the holiday weekend. I’ll have to get out my recipes and figure something out to cook/prepare for my wife! Besides, it’s our 8th anniversary on Sept 7th!
Some of us single dads don’t have a spouse or significant other to cook for, just our kids. My mom & sister will be here for the holiday. Will a meal I fix for them and the 3 kids count?
DaddyToolbox: As a SAHD I am so adrift in time I forgot that it was coming up to a long weekend. Happy Anniversary
Bob: Single Dads are certainly welcome. For this first theme you will have do some creative interpretation of the rules. Mom, Sister and three kids certainly count.
