...that I can't remember what the series was supposed to be about! I know it was going to be something about being prepared, or measure twice cut once...oh, sorry, that's my sewing blog. Yah, we have a lot that goes on around here.
But let me start this year by saying we still have not learned to double check the donut fryer before moving the truck. Seriously. I can't stress this enough. That doggone fryer has flown off the counter so many many many times that I'm surprised it even works. But that's not the part of the story that even bothers us! It's the fact that it's always filled with warmed donut grease and guess what happens to that donut grease when the fryer flips upside down and not delicately?
When it's warm outside, that grease sticks everywhere and we have sung the song Slip Sliding Away (is that even the title?) as we glide across the floor on a wings of grease. Gross, I know. But it happens. We can easily hose down the interior, buy stock in Dawn dish detergent for its degreasing properties and move on to the next time we forget to bungee the fryer AND empty the grease.
But..when it's cold outside...well, that's a different story. The grease hits the surface - any surface - and immediately freezes to that surface. With numbed fingers we try to chisel it off the important surfaces and hope it "disappears", but since we are not on the truck everyday we realize that's not a good idea either come 2 weeks later.
The good part is our truck is very easy to keep clean and since it is owned by 2 women, we tend to like our cooking spaces clean. That doesn't mean we don't also have mom brains that cause all prior knowledge about donut fryers filled with warm grease to exit our brains instantly as we pull away with a loaded truck for an important event! Again.
