Dates!



This week one of the most awesome psychiatrists at my work brought me some dates from her recent trip to Istanbul to visit family.

What an absolute treat!

She also let me try a bite of her Turkish Delight, which I remember reading about in The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe when I was kid, but had never actually tried. It was pretty good--tasted a lot like powdered sugar on a gumdrop.

Hope you're having a sweet Friday as well!

Thanks for your sweet comment! I love reading your blog...


Dates are FANTASTIC! We buy dates from Whole Foods and consume them by the handful. However, T teases me and says they look like cockroaches (shudder).

I've never been a fan of turkish delight but I, too, have fond memories of reading about them in C.S. Lewis. :)
