A Turkish Delight Party!

Today we enjoyed a very special treat as we celebrated reading the final chapter of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in class! Mrs. Humphreys made Turkish Delight (recipe is below), and it was a gooey, slimy, tasty treat. We also reflected on how our understanding of this novel has changed with the thinking routine "I used to think, but now I think." It's clear that we have all realized there is a much deeper meaning to this book, and it has been such an adventure to unpack the symbolism together.

Turkish Delight recipe:
6 (3 oz.) pkgs. Jello
1/8 tsp. salt
1 c. boiling water
Confectioners sugar
1 tsp. lime, lemon or orange juice (optional)
1 tsp. grated lime, lemon or orange peel (optional)
Put 6 (3 ounce) packages of lime Jello in saucepan. Add 1 cup boiling water. Stir to mix. Simmer over low heat 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice and lime peel. Pour into WET 8 inch square pan. Cool and chill until firm. Cut into 1 inch squares and toss pieces in confectioners sugar.
