Aprons are like special clothes designed to be worn only in the kitchen. (Trust me on this. If you get to the grocery store and still have yours on, you will get stares that are not admiring in nature. There is a 20 feet rule, however, that allows you go in any direction within 20 feet of your kitchen dressed in your apron without raising eyebrows. Onlookers merely assume you will be returning to la cocina momentarily.)
If you aren’t accustomed to wearing aprons, I have a question for you: What in the heck are you wiping your hands on? Aprons serve that purpose so well for the little shards of food debris you encounter. They are utilitarian items that can be beautiful, too. I try to always reach for one before I cook. Let’s face it, grease splatters, boiling liquids plop, liquids spill. Cooking is a dirty business and aprons are the superheroes that protect your lovely wardrobe while you’re fighting the food wars. Besides, some of them are sooo cute!
I LOVE APRONS!
Can you tell?
“While aprons come in all price ranges, really cute ones can be found for as low as $7.99 if you know where to shop. It’s a fun thing to collect and it’s nice, when you have friends or family helping in the kitchen, to have enough to share.”
