Fun Monday is being hosted at Ms Cellania this week. Her assignment?
'show your aprons' it can be your favourite or an unusual one or more than one. Be creative as you like; and secondly if, like me, you have lots of 'tea towels' that are brand new (or could be an old favourite) I would like to see those as well and hear the story behind the picture- was it a gift from a holiday, a present from auntie that you only use when she visits etc...........
Well, this one is a toughie for me, because I don't actually EVER use an apron. I own one...but it's just one I bought because it matched my "jalapeno" themed kitchen, and it just sort of hangs there, un-used. I honestly think I've worn it exactly once.
Even so, here it is in all it's glory:
This apron was part of a set that came with a dish-towel, oven-mitt, and four placemats. I use the oven-mitt quite often, the rest of the items sit in a drawer.
But as lacking as my "apron" collection may be, I have very fond memories of wearing mom's aprons growing up. My mother was (and still is) quite the seamstress, and she had several aprons she had made herself. I used to love to wear them as I helped out in the kitchen. She still has a few of those, and I wish I had remembered this Fun Monday assignment while I was at her house this weekend, I would have loved to have shared photographs of them with you.
As for me, my current lifestyle doesn't really allow much time in the kitchen. I can cook (quite well, if I say so myself), but most days I don't. I eat out quite a bit, and when I do cook, I tend to stick to quick and easy meals...cooking for one is not exactly inspiring of grand meals...after all, I'd spend way more time cooking them than eating them. Therefore, for now, the apron sits and waits.
Next week's Fun Monday is being hosted by Beckie...be sure to stop by to get your assignment!
