Re: how does ADD affect your cooking?

Then I went, "What am I doing?!" and took it out. My mind was in lala land. I swear, I can't think and do things at the same time.I also can't talk with someone while I do things or I forget what I'm doing, and that includes cooking.

I often underestimate the time it takes to cook something and we end up eating dinner late. I usually don't decide what we're having for dinner, until right before I start making it. My kids will ask what we're having for dinner and I'm like "How should I know? That's two hrs away! I haven't even thought that far ahead yet!"
You sound just like me! I become frustrated with myself for being so indecisive and/or forgetful. I've ruined many a recipe by leaving out an ingredient, misreading the directions, or even leaving an ingredient completely out. Drives me crazy! As a result, there are many times I'm like "why bother"...let's just order pizza!
