Snow Storm in August

MrM and MrsM discuss the Christmas (2010) Turkish Delight and agree that it must be eaten to make room for the Christmas (2011) Turkish Delight. This is referred to as 'Just in Time' Stock Management. MissM has not eaten Turkish Delight since she read "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe". MrM and MrsM are oblivious to MissM's disapproval...MrM is trying to find the little wooden fork at the bottom of the box and MrsM is trying to work out which is the pistachio flavour without covering the house in icing sugar. They are both failing.

  1. I don't know when a blog post has made me happier. Period.

    And the clock is TICKING.

  4. I buy my mother a box, every year, without fail. Sometimes I eat a square, but not always. Turkish Delight, Crystallised Ginger and those fruit jellies in the shape of Orange and Lemon slices are all essential parts of the celebration to her.
    I feel quite lucky to have escaped the tyranny of the obligatory sweet treat. Though am concerned about what my offspring will put in my stocking each year.

  6. It's strange stuff, Turkish Delight; I will eat it, but am never very sure if I really like it - and because it clings so tenaciously once bitten, there's no discreet spitting out into a hanky either!

  7. I'm with MissM; C.S Lewis did a good job on me.

  8. I'm with Tracy. Turkish Delight lasts about 5 minutes in this house, unless my mother is here in which case no-one else gets a look in! Mr DC has even been known to hover around Waitrose in the week after Christmas waiting until they reduce those glorious wooden boxes.

  9. Wouldn't last in our house, either. Daughter is a Turkish Delight fan and everyone is partial to the odd square - especially pistachio..

  10. My weakness I'm afraid, has been ever since I was a child.

  11. I am shamefully oblivious to the Turkish Delight-specific C S Lewis reference.

    I think you are timely, if not even previous in your stock management. Please tell me it is not yet Christmas. Please.

  12. I'm a bit of a philistine - I'm afraid mine has to be covered in Cadbury's or Fry's chocolate - can't do the icing sugar snow

  13. I shall admit I had to Google it as I never heard about Turkish delight.
    And, I am so happy to have discovered it's a sweet I don't like!

    Happiness is me.

  14. Do you know, I have the builders coming next week to start tearing down the old kitchen. When they dig the footings I could always have them thrown in any left over Turkish Delight if you would like?
