A bib-top apron with pockets makes me homesick for my Mom. She passed away seven years ago but her Birthday is next Month. During the entire month, I think about my mother. Actually, I think about her all the time, but long hot summers especially remind me of days being out of school and pestering Mom.
When my 2 brothers and I were young kids, summer meant better meals 3 times a day, and lots of homemade sweets made by Mom. There was no rush for school, so Breakfast could be chocolate gravy or pancakes with smiling faces with blueberry eyes.
Mom learned to cook as a very young girl. With a much older, married-sister who owned a restaurant, Mom began to help out behind the counter for her sister and brother-in-law at a young age.
Mom also learned lots of tips about food and cooking, and eventually became a culinary whiz. It served her well later in life as she worked as a Dietitian for many many years.
