Have you ever totally forgot about something you were cooking?

Only food in the microwave. Never food on the stove or in the oven.

Oh, the tales I could tell. ADHD + chefery is safe most of the time, but I've pull some *serious* boners in the kitchen. Try turning on the wrong burner and heading to the bathroom, only to come out and find that you've melted a stack of tupperware

onto the stove, and it's now filling the house with toxic smoke AND it's on fire AND oh, yeah, your soup is still cold AND by the way, that back burner? It's toast. Oh, AND it's wintertime, so that fan to blow out the smoke is sucking in ice. ICE.

A few times... Fortunately I've never set off the smoke alarm, let alone caused a fire. Most of the time it's still been edible - I was just fortunate - but once or twice, not so much.

Yes, I killed some artichokes last year. They were burned to death. There's a reason I don't cook.

Not me but my mother has and she cannot smell either...so we've had a few accidents while she was off doing another task while food was cooking.

I'm so glad the third time was a charm. You're still a much better cook than me. I could burn water.
