ApronsPosted: December 2, 2007
Loved your dream sharing! And also the kitchen memories. Did your “womenfolk” wear aprons? Do you ever wear an apron? Sorry my original message got cut, but I thought you could wear an apron while pouring the wine! Have joined a small movement to bring back the apron, tying generations of women together! I wore the hot chile apron (from the photo) on Thanksgiving–my sister in law made it for me. Joe’s mom is pictured in the frame–she grew up on a large Utah ranch, was rodeo queen twice, became a horsewoman even managing the teams of work horses that plowed their fields. In her own kitchen, she always wore a terry cloth apron. I think she’s smiling at those colorful aprons!

The above site gives you a peek at a wonderful special apron issue of this magazine. Unfortunately, the magazine only publishes once or twice a year! But it is well written, lush and homespun. The editor has a couple of books out that are nicely done…there are back issues of the magazine available. She sells her own cooking products throughout the publication…haven’t tried them.
