Do you wear an apron when you cook?

I just received a new apron as a present from my wonderful Man, and it got me thinking about why I always reach for my apron as the first step when beginning any work in my kitchen. None of my friends use an apron when cooking. Nor does my DH. For me however, it is a very important part of the whole experience.

My Mother always wore an apron and any time we are cooking together it always began with ‘where’s your apron’, or ‘here let me get you an apron’. I would happily oblige her, and put on one of the waist-style aprons she had on hand. Never really seeing the point, but doing so, because its how things are done in her kitchen.

Now, years later, with a family of my own, I am always reaching for my apron when beginning a task. The type I wear is a bib-style that goes around the neck and ties around the waist. This is the only style that works for me.

This link show basic ‘types’ of aprons. Mine is the ‘Designer Kitchen Bib’.

How about you? Do you wear an apron and if so – why or why not?
