I didn't have a rack to cook my chicken at the time. But I didn't want my chicken to sit in the oil. Internet search returned this brilliant idea of turning spoons upside down to create a rack. This was perfect! The oil dripped below and stayed separated from the oil during cooking.
My cucumbers were starting to get old and needed to get eaten. This was a salad I'd never tried before. It was okay. Links to ideas and recipe below.
