Last night I cooked scampi for tea.
I usually shallow fry scampi, but I decided for a change to pop them in the deep fryer instead.
Having cooked them I realized that the deep-fryer was a bit mucky and would need a good clean-out, so this morning I strained the oil, dismantled the fryer, and put the washable bits in the dishwasher.
Then I noticed that the worktop where the fryer had been standing was in need of a bit of a clean, so I did that, and then, naturally, ended up cleaning the whole of the rest of the worktop, which involved pulling out the microwave to clean behind/underneath.
Pushing the microwave back into position I could see that it, too, needed a good clean inside and out, which I did.
Then I emptied the strained gunge from the fryer into the bin, and, yes, you've guessed it, the bin was a bit grubby, so I washed that too.
That was when I noticed that the floor behind the bin needed sweeping, and while doing that I realized it was quite a while since the floor had been properly washed, so that was my next job.
I now have a sparkling kitchen, but I think it will be a while before I deep fry scampi again.
