Me or Dh regarding chip pan (lighthearted -ish)

So we have just had a beautiful kitchen fitted, it's still all clean and sparkly. I've never had a new kitchen. I've just put up lovely white curtains and the whole place is fresh.

Dh has just come home with a a large bottle of oil and a bag of spuds and decided that he is going to make 'home made chips'

Apparently he is ill and he needs stodge. I said I would go chippy for him, but they need to be 'home made chips'

I said no fucking chance no, it will put fat all over new cooker, make kitchen and whole house stink, make new curtains stink of fat. It's a waste of all that oil as it won't get used again (or he will try and cook every thing that he can find in it all week) he don't clean the pan out after it.

He doesn't fancy anything else so Is starving it out while I feel bad about getting my cake out of the fridge.

I most likely won't get my foot rub now

How dare he stink my new kitchen out!

No fucking way, you offered to go the the choppy! That's more than reasonable.

That's not lighthearted-that's deadly serious!

No way would I want that going on in a new kitchen! Takeaway for a week at least-just to keep it all clean grin

We have a deep fryer, it's great but the smell of fat gets into everything. I have to burn candles for days afterwards and wash the curtains to get the smell out. Just go to the chip shop.

Ah ladies after my own heart

wine to you all.

Clearly his 'illness' has gone to his brain! My oven window is crystal clear and my hob is spotless. He can feck off!

There is nothing worse than the next day fat smell, it gets into everything. I absolutely wouldn't allow it. Four years after my kitchen was fitted I still cook sausages and bacon on the BBQ outside as I cannot stand all that grease in my grill pan grin.

Dutchcourage Wed 03-Aug-16 20:44:14

I do use it thisis - I just don't see the need to boil fat in at this moment in time.

I nearly made him pack his bags when a day after my oven was installed he cooked a joint in the grill tray. Then left the fat in the pan in the oven (still on) so it welded the neat essence to the bottom of it. Ruined a day old tray. I did well up.

Do Not Weaken. There's nothing worse than the stink of old chip fat.

Dutchcourage Wed 03-Aug-16 20:45:13

catnip not a bad idea!

Dutchcourage Wed 03-Aug-16 20:45:54

I will not weaken flogging now I know I'm right!

Why have a kitchen that he isn't allowed to use? hmm

YelloDraw Wed 03-Aug-16 20:46:35

One of my favourite dishes requires deep frying spiced veggie bahji things. They are DIVINE but living in an open plan living space I can't have the smell of deep frying in the living space for days afterwards :-(

Dutchcourage Wed 03-Aug-16 20:47:13

He is allowed to use it. Just not boil fat - at the moment - while it's all new!

JackandDiane Wed 03-Aug-16 20:47:47

'go chippy' hmm

NeedACleverNN Wed 03-Aug-16 20:49:34

Why the hell have you put curtains in the kitchen?

You can't cook anything without the fabric absorbing it

You did offer a chippy which is nice but you can't ban cooking from the kitchen

Dutchcourage Wed 03-Aug-16 20:49:37

What's wrong with that jack?

Eatthecake Wed 03-Aug-16 20:50:15

It's his kitchen too, I don't understand the problem with him making chips if he wants too

InterchangeableEmma Wed 03-Aug-16 20:50:20

My PIL had this standoff. FIL now has an electric chip pan in the shed. Both are happy brew

Eatthecake Wed 03-Aug-16 20:51:03

Also who puts curtains in a kitchen? No matter what you cook they will smell

Dutchcourage Wed 03-Aug-16 20:51:46

need they are on French doors as we couldn't stretch to blinds at this moment. New baby is due soon and the house needed sorting ASAP. Curtains will have to do for now. (They will wash easily but I'm not telling Dh that)

Dutchcourage Wed 03-Aug-16 20:53:15

inter that's fucking ace! grin I'm going to tell Dh.

He has now settled for a sandwhich - in the bath as he is 'cold' because he is 'ill'

in the bath ? who the fuck am I married to?

JackandDiane Wed 03-Aug-16 20:55:09

'go to the chippy'

tibbawyrots Wed 03-Aug-16 20:58:21

Deep frying will make the kitchen pong for days!

We have a deep fat fryer but I suspect it's going to charity soon as I don't want to use it in my luffly kitchen.

Chippy chips are the dogs when you're under par. Wish our chippy was open more often!

Dutchcourage Wed 03-Aug-16 20:58:47

jack I can't beileve after my serious chip pan issue its the fact I did put 'to' in there that bothers you. Prioritys jack!
