Awhile back I was bemoaning the demise of the apron when lo and behold I came across this cute one, below right, with two big front pockets, at the Santa Fe Farmer's market. It has a cute red rooster fabric coated with plastic. You know in NYC I spelled cooking: TAKE OUT or DELI. Not here. The apron was $16, is made in Mexico by Gloveables, Inc. (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I don't want the cooking chez nous to become mute or mutant (yes, with Los Alamos not too far away, I've been reading up on atomic food). I'm also concerned with transgenic food, franken food and all of those freaky food things. They are about as appetizing to me as cheez whiz casseroles. I also like discovering new food issue blogs like Law for Food. After watching the NYC transfat ban happen and the activists that led it to happen, it makes me very cautious about what and how I eat in our country. Eating out can be risky. Have you seen the colleges that are now serving fast food on campus? You can't be a chicken about food things and health. You have to have gallina (courage) to live food-smart. I'm not as cocky as my dad is about being smart about food stuff. He will hen-peck you if you let him. He's a real Food Policeman.
My Navajo chickie collection has grown over the years. If you want one, you can find them at Wind River Trading in Santa Fe (505) 989-7062. That is where I found the two up top, left, that sit above my kitchen cabinets. Tell them MotherPie sent you and they might give you a discount.
Just thought I'd cock-a-doodle do about these things...
