One of the joys of a well-stocked larder is that when your plans suddenly shift due to weather or sickness or other such capriciousness (car trouble, flaky friends) you can rest assured in the certainty that you will not, for the time being at least, starve.
Even better, a day suddenly wide open and available means you can indulge a little (or a lot) in what you're naturally drawn to. Sometimes it can take a minute or two to sort this out, especially if your life is crammed full of expectations and obligations and you've lost sight of what it is that your heart yearns for. But a few quiet moments with a cup of whatever stimulates your body and mind and a gentle but firm reminder that this is not about cleaning cupboards or sorting spices and perhaps you'll arrive at something that brings a smile to your face. The answer for me this morning was simple, but satisfying: banana pancakes.
