Mom's had a long week, being very busy at work, and dealing with some traffic issues, with a bridge and lane closure on her way home. She said it was a ZOO.
She tries to plan ahead. For example, she put some chicken pieces in the crock pot yesterday to cook, so she could put them in containers this morning to have shredded for salads and casseroles. BUTT, she makes them with an olive oil based dressing, then removes the chicken and the skin so the oil and skin stays in the crock pot but the chicken is SOOO yummy. BUTT, it makes a REALLY messy crock pot.
Dad said "don't worry, fill it with water and let it soak and I'll dispose of it before work." since Mom leaves for work a couple of hours before he does.
Except there was an emergency at Dad's work and he had to rush off to help others.. . .
Leaving the crock pot full of chicken skin bits and fatty water.
NOOO, I didn't get into it, as it was up high and away from the edge of the counter, but when Mom got home it was a smelly mess.
I notice these things.
So I let Mom know the instant she got home in her nice work clothes it needed to be taken care of. Mom's smart, she got the crock pot rounded up to pour off the mess for the trash.
Except someone got in the way
And there was a big tidal wave in the crock pot.
And most of the chicken fat water and skin pieces ended up down the front of Mom's new blouse.
No picture, cuz she got right OUT Of the clothes,
But decided right then and there she needed a SHOT of something.
The Chocolate kind.
