Saturday morning ritual

Saturday morning ritual: get of bed around 10 or 11, put the kettle on, and climb right back into bed with a mug of Yorkshire Tea, my laptop, and whatever cookbooks I feel like dragging in with me to plan the weekend's activities: shopping, movie-going, cooking.

Today I'm thinking about going to the mall—I'm feeling very strongly about having a late-afternoon mall food court lunch and maybe seeing a movie in a suburban theater (they sell better snacks)—and putting together a banoffee pie. I haven't had banoffee pie in years, but it's one of my all-time favorite desserts.
