THE STRING THAT TIE, A SHORT TALE OF APRONS

There is comfort food and comfort clothing. Mashed potatoes and gravy, meatloaf, and apple crisp figure are comfort foods we can all relate to.

A woman wearing an apron: a rare sight, I know so don’t look for it on any MTV video soon. But no frock, skirt, frilly blouse or gown makes me feel more feminine, and out-of-this-era than I do wearing one of my aprons – even my standard white chef’s issue.
