A word on aprons in general to those of you who might not wear them: what are you thinking?! Do you not cook or just have a lot of messed up clothes? Aprons are the coolest invention since they allow people to cook and keep outfits unscathed in the process. I have a ton of aprons and I am totally into them. I feel that a good apron is essential for the kitchen, and I also like to use different ones, depending on my mood. White aprons, however, have been my apron downfall....
Since this was a gift and the apron was awesomely cool, I vowed to actually cook in it and not pass up the opportunity to don the beauty. It's not like I am going to go canning a bizillion tomatoes in it or anything, but I am going to use it. Maybe for making chicken. I think it could survive grease splatters.
The thing is, this apron is like every white shirt I have in my drawer that never gets worn because I am afraid to mess it up due to my incessant cooking... and I need to get over myself. These things are material. Replaceable. And completely nonexistent if you don't use them for their intended purposes. Like, if I had a friend who said she had wedding china that she never used because she didn't want to mess it up, I would say, "well what's the point of having it at all?" Some things we just shouldn't worry about.
Since I have obviously gone to the point in this conversation where I have given so much over-thought to the subject of white aprons, I feel like I need to reach a resolution once and for all. I will fear not the white apron. I will embrace it. I will love it. I WILL COOK IN IT!
And on a nondescript Wednesday, that was just what I did: I cooked Carbonara in it and it was fantastic. Most surprisingly, my white apron did not spontaneously combust. So I think I will actually use it again!!!
So what about all of you out there in the abyss we know as cyber space? What do you fear? Is it a kitchen gadget... an apron... your grandma's china?? Share in the comments section below and tell me how you are gonna change your fearin' ways!!!
