The other day I was reading a recipe book, I can't remember which one it was now, but it had the best idea. I'm sure a lot of people have thought of this but it was pure genius to me! When you are browning hamburger and need to drain the excess grease do not pour it down the drain. This is obvious. I am often left looking for somewhere to put it. I hate pouring it in a mug because it is so gross to clean out. The book said to line a mug with foil before you pour in the grease. After the grease has cooled and solidified pull the foil out with the grease blob. The mug will be so much easier to clean and you won't clog your pipes!
