Here in Holland we have winter- and summertime and this weekend they put the clock one hour back. Which results in shorter days and that signals the coming of Winter.
The days become shorter but it also tells us that Holidays are coming. Holidays in which we invite a lot of people and we have to cook for them.
And often that means we stay for hours in the kitchen to impress our guests in which every Dude wants to also wants to add that prverbial dime in the bag.
Don’t tell me that you don’t care to impress your guests with your cooking, for when you don’t why are you reading this blog anyway?
But on the other hand a real dude also wants to raise the glass (or the beerbottle) with his guests. So in fact he has to be in two places at the same time; the kitchen and the living room with his guests.
And there you have it; real dudes can’t multitask. For, where ladies can do several things at once with mediocre result, dudes excel in doing one thing at a time with excellence.
So it’s about time to reflex on how to hit that two birds with one stone.
Perhaps I’ve found the solution for this standoff.
For you can serve your guests a special treat and brag about it the same time (without working yourself in sweat in the kitchen) whilst drinking a beer. How’s that for multi tasking?
Ofcourse it must be dudey, so this appetizer/snack is served with RAW meat.
Raw meat fires off the primal instincts of every Dude, so here is the showstopper for every party.
Crispy bread cups with a delicious filling of raw ground beef steak
