What is your favorite sweet thing to eat? Bread pudding? Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies? A smooth and creamy piece of cheesecake?
I have posted this post some months ago, and I renew it here, in this time of chocolate, so indulge moderately
When I read The Daily Prompt: Pour Some Sugar on me, I was going to write about the sweets topics and all the above: Mille-Feuilles, a French pastries , and petite salties, petits-fours gourmets I am found of, then I saw the featured image by stu_spivack in a second, I recalled Nina Simone’s “I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl” song,
I want a little sugar in my bowl
I want a little sweetness down in my soul
I could stand some lovin’, oh so bad
I feel so funny, I feel so sad
I said to myself : forget about the food, I couldn’t help but just post this video as is, http://www.last.fm/music/Nina+Simone/_/I+Want+a+Little+Sugar+in+My+Bowl http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rqU9LKA83Yc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLyk7Jst9Bk&list=RDrqU9LKA83Yc
A little treat for myself, it’s mon Peché-Mignion, that’s what I wanted to share with you, first, so I grabbed a Mille-Feuilles, an Eclair-aux-chocolat, at a French bakery at the corner of the street, and some petit-salés, with a bottle of champagne Moêt et Chandon, (these are traits from France,) where she lived for many years, and I sat back and listened to Nina Simone, but you don’t have to, so listen you proper music if you don’t like Jazz, and please indulge delightfully.
But then I got that bitter-sweet taste heft in the palate, when I got to read the Longreads post: What it was like to hear Nina Simone Live?
But wait! There is more to it, I just read this http://nyti.ms/1FsNLNj that I want to share it with you, for the time being too, it’s on Tweeter, I feel not so funny, but so sad
