My culinary skills have left a lot to be desired today, I have failed miserably in the kitchen department. I think lapse of concentration has something to do with it. I put a pan on the cooker and left the room to do something else, I hate waiting around for things to cook. Half an hour later the smell of burning drifts past my nostrils and I rushed into the kitchen to turn the gas off under a very hot pan. I had to open a window to get some fresh air in. Good job it was in a non stick pan and came out in a solid lump. I hope hedgehogs like the taste of burnt porridge. Oh well, toast for breakfast then, at least that pops up when it is ready.
Same thing happened again later, only it was the veggie sausages under the grill this time which went a very dark shade of mahogany. They looked like those tough meaty dog chews you can buy. Too expensive to throw them out for the hedgehogs, so I ate them, they were rather crispy, ha ha.
The trouble is I am always multitasking, with several jobs on the go at once. I am planning in my mind what I am going to do next, and forget what I am doing at that precise moment, hence I find myself walking from room to room in a daze and forget what I went in for. I think I need to make a list.
I have different jobs going on in different parts of the house. I can't sit still and just do one job before I move onto the next. I am wandering around doing a bit here and a bit there, then I end up with a load of jobs only half finished. It's very frustrating. My concentration is all over the place. Oooops, sorry, I've got to sign off, the kitties need feeding, the bins want putting out, the pots need washing, and I've got to get a bath. No time for a long post. Toodle pip.
