We have a self cleaning option on our stove/cooker for the oven. So after the turkey/bacon fiasco on Christmas Day, I put it onto self clean on Boxing Day for 3 hours. 3 hours later the stove is a bit better, but still filthy. So on Sunday morning, I sprayed it all with Easy Off oven cleaner and that will be my job Monday morning scrubbing the oven.
Its a smooth/ceramic top on my stove, and that too was filthy; I have no idea why, but anyhow, spent ages scrubbing the top to get all the spots off it. Then I had to scrub out the laundry sink, as the washer drains into there and it was blocked again.
Then of course the ironing was to do, the fire to clean out and more laundry to do.
By this time I figured it was time for a bit of retail therapy, so we went to the mall. I needed new slippers, as mine stunk. When you can smell stinky feet when you have your slippers on, its high time to change them. Got new underwear, which I badly needed. Then we popped into Home Depot to price out some stuff for future projects.
Of course had turkey for supper, still got more left, but not too much. Managed to finish off the leftover veggies, so other than some dessert, no more leftovers for us!!
I am taking part in a challenge on another site I go on, and thought it was interesting enough to mention on here. For the month of January, you have to eat out of the pantry/fridge/freezer and try not to spend anything in the grocery store. Any money you save, you can use it for something else, or better still put in your savings account. I have another turkey in the freezer, plus a big ham, so I have got a good start. I thought this would be an interesting challenge. Also for anyone who decides to take part in this, you have a couple of days to prepare for this......like I have to!!
