Fun Monday# I'm hosting next week (6 Aug)

JUST REPOSTING THIS TO MAKE SURE I HAVE THE LINKS FOR EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO JOIN IN.



This is my second time at hosting Fun Monday and it is quite by coincidence that I am keeping you all in the kitchen as I had this ready for last week when I though I might be at the helm then.

However I will confess I'm going to cheat a little, as 'ideas' are not my big thing, and use an event I participated in a few weeks ago. I saw it being advertised by Barbara and Cookiecrumb from Lucillian Delights food blog. It was Pamela who commented that I could make this the subject of a Fun Monday. So with a little variation here goes:

I would like you to 'show your aprons' it can be your favourite or an unusual one or more than one. Be creative as you like;
and secondly if, like me, you have lots of 'tea towels' that are brand new (or could be an old favourite) I would like to see those as well and hear the story behind the picture- was it a gift from a holiday, a present from auntie that you only use when she visits etc...........


Please let me know if you are intending to participate by leaving a comment. Thank you

POSTSCRIPT
I don't know what aprons are called in other countries so if anyone is in doubt as to what I mean here is a link that shows some pics AND GUYS HAVE A LOOK THE PICS ARE NOT ALL WOMEN!!

I'll do it, but I have no idea what this "apron" thing is you mention. Aren't you just supposed to wipe your hands on your pants?

Now, why would I want an apron?

Seeing as I now own an apron (purchased recently) I can play!

At first, I was thinking "apron? I have no aprons." I do; I just do not wear them. Count me in.

I used to have aprons. Since I never used them, I tossed them. Years ago. So I can't play. Boo.

 
At 30/7/07 12:22, Blogger ChrisB said...

irreverentmama What about a decorative 'tea towel' !!

Here's the deal. I want to play, but we are leaving on a road trip and won't be home until next Monday. I have already composed a post where I guessed at the "topic." It wasn't aprons and tea towels.
If theHansMan is late leaving, I will have time to put this together. If not, may I use the post where I just guessed at Fun Monday's topic?

What is this thing you call an apron? I have certainly never seen one in my house.

I'll play along, I'm just not exactly sure what I'm going to post a picture of!

I don't have an apron anymore. I guess I just get crap all over my clothes when I cook, huh!

I will try to participate, I'll be on vacation but I can schedule posts.

 
At 30/7/07 16:24, Blogger Beckie said...

I'm in - I'm not sure what my aprons look like, but I have a box of them in the basement. They belonged to my Mom and Grandmother. They are probably moldy.....

Come on Chris, you've got to be kidding! Aprons and tea towels!?! What kind of a nancy boy do you take me for? I'm in.

At 31/7/07 22:04, Blogger Robinella said...

I'll play.

 
At 1/8/07 04:30, Blogger lisa's chaos said...

I would love to play but honestly I have no aprons. All these kitchen oriented Fun Monday's are making me feel a little masculine. I just don't like to be in the kitchen. So I have no aprons to share so I guess I'll sit this one out.

Look forward to seeing everyone else's though.

 
At 1/8/07 16:29, Blogger Debs said...

I am in :)

Sounds like fun.

 
At 2/8/07 00:54, Blogger Tiger Lamb Girl said...

I'm going to try to participate in this one. I'll see how the weekend goes (if I can find a few spare minutes to dig out the aprons and some of our more interesting tea towels and then photograph them).

;).

 
At 2/8/07 04:00, Blogger Tiggerlane said...

I'm in, but be warned...I cook nekkid.

 
At 2/8/07 09:40, Blogger ChrisB said...

Thank you all for joining me on this one :)

 
At 2/8/07 14:18, Blogger Amy W said...

I will play, but I am going to have to steal my daughter's apron...

 
At 2/8/07 14:22, Blogger Fianna said...

I am leaving town, but I am gonna participate from the road. I may be a bit early in my post just to ensure it gets up there. Love me some aprons!

 
At 2/8/07 23:23, Blogger Jenni said...

I've thought long and hard about this and I've decided to do it. It's not an easy assignment for me. Please add me to the list anyway:o)

Why do you want to get rid of that moss? I love moss! We're actually going to dig some up from the woods, put it in a blender, and paint it on some of our boulders. (Our landscape architect friend says that's the way to transplant it.) Moss is cool and lush and so like a tiny forest. Keep the moss and act like you put it there on purpose.

Stephanie I've added you to the list thanks for joining in :)

 
At 4/8/07 15:11, Blogger theotherbear said...

I have no idea what to post as I don't have aprons. I was going to tell you I cooked in the nude but I see tiggerlane has already done that joke. I have tea towels but not exciting ones so not sure on that one either. I'll see what I can come up with anyway!

 
At 4/8/07 15:58, Blogger ChrisB said...

theotherbear- that's a post in itself talking about no apron and ordinary tea towels (or your dishwasher maybe if that dries your dishes!!)

 
At 4/8/07 17:31, Blogger her indoors said...
