So for those of you who travel, sometimes it is just too tempting to resist a sweet. If you have read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, you might remember the scene where the youngest brother succumbs to the temptation of Turkish Delight. Now, I read that book when I was about 12 and for years I wondered what was so special about that particular food? We arrived in Turkey about 8 days ago and I was PLAGUED with offers of TD at the shoppes, on the plane, in the market… So I finally tried it! Oh my gosh, it was so good. The others with me can't stand the stuff but I, of course, love it. So I have tried it but now I am concentrating on the lovely salads instead of the sweets!!!

While I'm jealous you've made it to Turkey (I hope you post some pictures), you can have my share of turkish delight. Can't stand the stuff.
