I have to write one more thing today, this about a small disaster. We (sig. other and I) have been planning on cooking some chicken legs for a while now, putting it off too long. Ie: the legs have been thawed in the fridge a day longer than makes us comfortable. However, my fear of wasting food won out and I cooked them as planned, just a little longer under the broiler. I forgot, however, that our broiler requires us to place the meat one level down than normal. I also let it cook a little longer, eager to kill any evil samonella. Result: so much burning and charring, all windows had to be opened. Any of the marinade that was on there was now burnt to a literal crisp, which you can see below. sigh. Let this be a lesson to me to use food when it should be used.
