Food fit for a queen
Each night after dinner and baths and scripture reading and teeth cleaning we gather on my bed for our nighttime story.
Reading aloud to my kids is one of my greatest pleasures as a mother. We’ve worked our way through Laura Ingalls Wilder, a few Roald Dahl, and A.A. Milne.
I decided my kids were ready to enter the world of Narnia. It was more emotional than I expected. Of course my kids don’t understand the symbolism yet, but when that mighty stone table cracked and Aslan stood with his golden mane, I was in tears. C.S. Lewis, you are truly the man.
We just finished the last pages. To celebrate our journey, we did something I’ve wanted to do my entire life. We made Turkish delight, a glorious pile of sticky sweetness that enchanted Edmund in the book and my children at the table.
Now on to the next delicious read.
