It is Salsa and Fireman Food day at the Kramer house! Mom is busy catering the county fire meeting and my siblings brought home 5 crates of tomatoes from their visit to my aunt and uncle’s house. Makes for a very messy kitchen and busy day!
When you know you will be getting very messy (like we do when we make salsa) and you have a very long to-do-list (like today) a Two-Minute T-Shirt apron is just what you need. Here’s a quick tutorial:
Lay a t-shirt flat on a cutting surface. A size or two too big is best.
Cut through both thicknesses from armpit to edge of collar, creating a halter-top shape.
Turn the shirt over.
Cutting through the back of the shirt only cut from armpit to armpit.
Trim around the collar of the t-shirt.
Leave a 3″ strip under the arms. I have this marked with pins. Starting at the lower corner, cut up to the 3″ strip, across the t-shirt, and down to the other lower corner. You have cut a big rectangle from the bottom of the shirt.
Cut to halfway through the 3″ strip, across the middle of the strip, and up the top of the strip so that two separate straps strings have been made.
Pull the strings tight to make long ties.
Here is my mom…
…all ready for salsa!
