Talking The TRAVELING APRON has ended.

Okay, folks - I've got an idea....

We're all a pretty close-knit group of people.....
who enjoy having a fun, and often silly time.....

So, how about this idea......

THE TRAVELING APRON GAME!
.....in a nutshell....
I'll purchase an apron, get a photo of myself in it, post the photo, then I send it to the next (willing) member of DC, who takes the photo, posts the photo...and so on...

If someone would like to be in the Traveling Apron Game, they could post this on a thread, and then when it was their turn, a pm would be sent to them for their mailing address.

I'll include an "apron's history" log which will have a space for the members to write a bit about what meal was cooked with the apron, and perhaps the recipe used too.

Maybe it could be used in a cookout contest! Or at a restaurant! Or....the possibilities are endless!

I'd like to see how many different cities this apron can visit! And states! And countries!

What do you guys think?

If this discussion ends up with some positive feedback, I'll start it going next week.

so long as the socks are black, and you're wearing them with sandals.

(yes, there will be a rule that the pictures can be silly, happy, sweet, but not naughty!)

I think that's a great idea!

What if we get a fabric pen and all sign our names on it too?

Something else that could be done is to include a recipe on a recipe card. That recipe card would go to the new apron wearer as a memento of the apron.
