Are You a “Sinkie”?

November 22, 2017

A “sinkie” is a person who occasionally dines over the kitchen sink. The day after Thanksgiving is the day sinkies recognize as their special day. It coincides with Black Friday because many are in a rush that day, and they are grabbing a quick snack of leftovers. No joke! “Sinkie Day” is an actual day. It was founded in 1991 by the International Association of People Who Dine over the Kitchen Sink.

There are also other variations of this practice:

  • Standing in front of the open refrigerator, rummaging around in the leftovers
  • Drinking milk (or other beverage) straight from the carton
  • Eating on the run
  • Grabbing a jelly doughnut while racing out the door in the morning, late for work
  • Dashboard dining in the car
  • Having a desk lunch of M&Ms and Diet Pepsi from the vending machine at work

If you have done any of these, you are a sinkie. It’s okay—most of us are, and we didn’t even know it! There are many cookbooks at the Library that are great for busy, on-the-go sinkies.

Here are a few:

We also have a wide variety of slow cooker recipe books. These are great for people on the go. You put the ingredients in the crockpot in the morning; and when you get home, your dinner is waiting for you.
