There's actually 3 parts to the gift.
1) In the past year, after lots of tests, they realized he is lactose intolerant big time. Even if something is cooked that had a milk product in it, his stomach (not intestines) will kill him for the next 3 days. SO I put together a milk-less cookbook for him of easy meals for a freshman...and maybe a couple of easy ones with extra ingredients to impress the ladies.
2) All college kids are starving students, so I will be sending a box of some fun food items with the cookbook. And probably a couple of ingredients/spices for the recipes.
3) AND this is an apron blog right? It's high time I made another apron to post. So here you are. I wanted to make a team apron for the upcoming football season anyway, so this was perfect timing. It's not perfect, but I think it's pretty cool - and manly enough for him to wear. (Although my husband thinks all aprons are girly no matter what material they're made from). I think I need to make one for myself now. A cafe apron is great for team sports anyway because when you're serving nachos or buffalo wings you don't really need a full apron anyway. Go make yourself one!
I used skinny ribbon for the ties. So much easier and less time consuming than flipping ties right-side out.Linking to:
