Note to self: Starting a small kitchen fire is not the best way to make an early start getting away to Sydney.
(Don't worry, REALLY small...as in contained to the stove top. Cleaning up the spilled hot oil and getting the thin layer of smoke hovering under the ceiling out, however, took forever!
Oh, handy hint, by the way ~ you know how you can't put out an oil fire with water? Well salt works really well. Also burned oil and salt doesn't stick to the hotplate. Once it cools you can just pick it up and put it in the bin. Too easy. (Please don't start an oil fire just so you can try this out.)
Okay, I'm off to Sydney to catch up with my ex-housemate and see Chris Rock live. Yah!
