More Men Stepping Up And Helping To Prepare Thanksgiving Dinner
When I was a kid, things were different in my house than in the homes of most of my friends. My grandparents always made Thanksgiving dinner and my grandpa always helped cook. That wasn’t the case for my friends- their moms were the ones who did the cooking while their dads watched football.
It looks like the mindset that the woman is the Thanksgiving cook has changed. A lot.
Butterball asked a bunch of people how involved men get in helping to cook Thanksgiving dinner and found that more men can be found in the kitchen alongside women while getting ready for the Thanksgiving Day meal.
One-in-four men claim to help out more in the kitchen now than they did a few years ago and almost half of men say they actually play a big role in either getting the turkey ready or cooking it. And why not? If there were a man in my house, you can bet I’d use it to my advantage. He’d be reaching into the bird to pull out all the nasty stuff.
So obviously, the days of guys just chilling out on the couch watching football and waiting for the food to be served are long gone.
