Celebration means turkish delight for us! It’s celebration time again! We are celebrating the first day of Spring! After tiring and cold days, it’s time to enjoy outside! A warm and sunny weather has welcomed us this morning, exactly the way we expect from Spring!
It’s not easy to wake up on Winter days, it’s darker and colder outside, so you want to stay in bed more wrapping yourself in your so warm duvet. You even need someone to pull you out of your bed! This cold and gloomy weather effects even some people’s mood. Most of my friends say that they feel pessimistic and melancholic in such a weather condition. They don’t even want to go to work. The only thing they would like is to lie on the sofa and watch a romantic movie. Are you that kind? My choice would be cooking or baking something comforting, it makes me feel warmer and peaceful inside.
So it seems like we’ve come to the end of those days! It was so bright outside this morning that we woke up much earlier, even without a need of our loud alarm clock! Sunlight flowing through the window was like inviting us to its joy outside!
Yusuf wanted to go to the market to buy something for breakfast although we had everything. I realized his desire to have some fresh air and to feel the sun outside, but didn’t say anything. I started setting the table when he was out. He came with some bags and told me that he bought something special for today. He showed me a small package of turkish delight in three colors; pink, white and brownish. There are millions of varieties of turkish delight, but I had never seen that vibrant pink one before! It is flavored with pomegranate and has big pieces of pistachios inside. The white one is flavored with vanilla and pistachio and the brownish one contains hazelnuts. The last two are coated with coconut powder.
Don’t you think these are perfect for any sweet occasion?
I wrote about turkish delight lokum before. You can get more information about in that post.
So we made turkish coffee and enjoyed these together! Turkish coffee with turkish delight, nothing could beat these!
Would you celebrate the coming of Spring too?
