I was having a lazy day, the rain was falling hard and I had nothing to eat. I was left in a quandary. Thankfully, staring longingly at my cupboards really does pay off. I managed to find a hidden jar of sweet corn, some sweet chilli dipping sauce and an egg. Combined with some spices and rice flour, gluten free corn cakes rescued me from stepping outside into the wet weather.
