    One of my favorite Christmas gifts from DH this year was an electric griddle. I adore this thing. It's huge, big enough to cook a pound of bacon all at once and still have room to fry some eggs. It has a tilt feature so that the grease from the foods cooking drains away to the grease tray underneath.
    I used the griddle tonight to make DH some bacon and eggs. Got him fed and in bed and started my kitchen clean up. Had all the dishes done and only the griddle left to clean.
    I forgot all about that grease tray underneath. Grabbed the griddle up and slung bacon grease all over the clean dishes in the dishdrain, the cabinet fronts and the floor.
    Jax helped with the floor clean up and I didn't have to ask him. Isn't he a good dog??
    So, that's just the first one of the year folks. Gonna be hard for me to top this, even as talented as I am.
    Stay tuned. [​IMG]

    Can I share mine??? Happened about 3 hours ago.

    I've been using a very sharp knife to help get the callouses off of my feet. I haven't had an issue at all. All of a sudden, I hear the fire alarm go off...

    SLICE. Oh yeah. There's no callous there anymore. It's still bleeding and I am ticked...

    [​IMG] I tried that one too. Apparently my callouses are "smooth" so the razor doesn't seem to get what I need to get at. But, thanks for the idea!

    grit, Jax is such a good boy! Helping you out! Too bad he's not allowed on those counters! [​IMG]
