Grazie mille! I love to hear apron stories, likes and dislikes. Nice apron, not to talk about the view! wow! And my mother-in-law also puts on her clogs as soon as she gets home!


I love this post Simona. I have many, many aprons. All from restaurants I have liked. Guess I should put up a post.


I kinda think it's funny that your mom packed up the apron and took it back with her, when you didn't have one at home for yourself. I guess she knew you could buy your own from TJMaxx, huh? ;-)

Nice new apron! I like that it has the pockets. Your so lucky to have that ocean view. And that is a very big tree stump. Wow! Last but not least, your bread look terrific!



I really enjoyed this,touched my heart.! I can just visualize your mom in the kitchen, looking around for that apron~I usually wear one and always when cooking for guests. I like them so much, I retail them,with matching hot pads!.I am sure you have seen them in all the gourmet shops.Anyway, i like the ones that fit at the waiste and go all the way down to my ankles! Once in a while, I have difficulty getting on to your sight. I always hear a blip-blip when your sight comes up. Any clues as to what is going on?

You are welcome Ilva. Interesting about your mother-in-law: does she live close to you?
Hi Christine, I do hope you put up a post: I'd like to see the restaurant aprons you have.
Paz, I like the pockets too: they are very handy. They remind me of the only aprons I wore before this, in the print shop of the San Francisco Center for the Book http://www.sfcb.org
I am very happy about my bread. We should have a bread event: no machine allowed.
Jann, you just reminded me that once I gave my mother an apron with matching pads decorated with hearts in a small heart-shaped basket. She kept the apron and insisted I take the pads, because she does not use them: I still have one of them in my kitchen now.
I am sorry about the issues with the site: what browser are you using and what exactly happens on the screen when you try to view my blog? I would like to forward the info to the support people. Thanks.


i am using windows internet explorer-I am beginning to think the bleep-bleep sound is because I am switching over to typerpad...what do you think? Other than that, things are working fne!


My God, you live in paradise! How beautiful. And I loved the story about your mother; I, too, can just picture her in her clogs and apron. I love aprons, myself. I'm always grumbling about the fact that most of the chefs on The Food Network don't wear them!

Jann, do you still hear the sound now that I moved the embedded audio player to its own page?
Lisa, I wonder whether wearing aprons is considered non-telegenic. Did Julia Child wear one?
I am currently living in the place in the photo part-time, probably moving there in August.


This is really a fun post. Sorry I missed it at the time. I like your mom. I have many aprons but don't always wear one.


Thanks Tanna. In the meantime, I have acquired two more aprons and I must admit that I am wearing one quite often, though not always, just like you.
