Small Bricks



A flat day today - nothing doing and rain in the air finally breaking through at 5pm. Monday into the bargain. Nothing to be done tonight but chop a chilli, some garlic, spring onion, shallots and fresh basil, shove it in the wok, pile in the saffron, fish stock, seafood, rice and cook up that risotto - it always makes me feel better. Accompaniments to this cooking - a glass of London Pride, a bit of Nina, the daughters playing with my 1970s Lego on the floor.

Nina Simone - 'I Loves You Porgy' (1958)

  1. It was very tasty, though I say it myself.

  2. What? the risotto or this ultra-smooth Gershwin?
    I bought a double CD last time I was back in England of her early stuff. No My Baby Just Cares For Me, no Ain't Got No (I Got Life), just lots of things like this. Incomparable.
