Chicken fat and tragedy

I woke up this morning to a lake of chicken fat a foot in diameter on my kitchen counter.  It spread underneath the microwave and dribbled down the sides of the crockpot from which it had originated.  Let this be a lesson to you.  Never overfill a crockpot when you make chicken broth from the remains of a roasted chicken.  It can result in a huge mess.  On the positive side, at least the broth is mostly defatted.  And tomorrow I will have gorgeous, yummy chicken soup.

On a sadder note, the other thing that happened this morning, far more tragic than a pool of overflowing chicken fat, is that Star C. Foster, aka Sarcasmo died of a pulmonary embolism.  I’ve posted about it on the Metroblog and have tried to gather other posts dedicated to her from across the blogosphere.

    Plus, overflowing chicken broth forces you to, by default, really do a good kitchen cleaning.

    I never read Star C. Foster, and I wish I had given how much so many people are praising her.
