Blog on saving money and living on a budget in CT.

One of the nonconsumer blogs I follow suggested using this technique for draining fried foods. Normally I would grab a saved paper bag, folded onto a plate, as I choose not to purchase paper towels. I had fried off this pork sausage for Sunday breakfast, using a spoon to gather all of the fat,
adding it to my bacon/pork/ham fat jar, for use in future cooking. Quite a bit of fat was saved, which is normal with sausage. The sausage in the first picture came out of the pan pretty grease free, so I saved a paper bag in the process. Next, I need to try this with bacon, which I know will lead to more grease dripping down onto the cookie sheet pictured above.
