The latest issue of Taste arrived on Monday, and it was out of it’s wrapper and half-read before I was even inside. Sounds impressive, but nothing enables new-magazine-reading like discovering you’ve forgotten your keys and are now locked out of the house. In the pouring rain.
James couldn’t leave work to let me in, but one of his co-workers was meeting friends in town and offered to drop James’ key to me on the way. I hadn’t intended to spend an hour of my evening huddled on the doorstep, turning pages with one hand while trying to shelter myself behind a magazine-sized piece of plastic with the other, but these things happen.
My self-inflicted exile turned up this though: Banana Chocolate Chip Slice. Not only is it excellent for kids’ lunches (apparently – I’ll have to take Taste’s word on that), it’s perfect as a ‘thanks for going out of your way so I could get inside’ kind of thing. Because you can’t give pretty fabric cards to everyone, unfortunately.
