Ivy has a bit of a sensitive stomach, so we have to cook for her. Beef (which is totally gross for a vegetarian to cook -- I don't know if it's that I don't have a good grip on the spatula or if ground beef is just prone to go flying everywhere?) and rice, supplemented with a dog food that smells suspiciously like saw dust. We've been assured by our veterinarian that it is a fully nutritious meal, but we are looking forward to feeding her something that has less resemblance to wood shavings and is more akin to your general purpose dog food, at the very least.
At any rate, we are in the habit of giving Ivy the pan to lick the fat after the beef is cooked (don't worry - we don't use this pan to cook food for ourselves or for any of you). This makes the pan easier to clean and then the fat doesn't clog our septic system. As you can see in the above photo, Ivy has gotten so lazy that she just lies on the floor to lick the pan. I don't know if this says more about us or about her.
