Literary Desserts

I was lying in bed the other night, finishing up a sweet little book by Jennifer Weiner titled Little Earthquakes, when I read a line that was so poignant to me..and maybe I was extra sensitive because I was nursing a nasty stomach bug, but...
A character was talking about one of my favorite desserts, Tres Leches, and listed the three milks that give the delicious treat its name: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and the milk of human kindness
How beautiful is that?
Sometimes words, even simple ones, are very powerful, and Little Happies often pop up where and when you least expect them...
