The August Month of Ramzan

Sadly, this year, I haven't really been in the Ramzan spirit... I am fasting and praying regularly but I usually read the Quran and make time for extra prayers and consciously try to be a better person. This year, I'm just too tired (and I know that's not an excuse :-()...

I wish I could be outside enjoying the lovely weather... just now, the cloudy skies and rough sea are beckoning but I'm stuck inside :(

Married life is good Alhamdulilah. Mr. F and I are a lot more comfortable with each other now and we've generally become more patient and understanding... We've come to accept certain things about one another and given up trying to change the other person... (this took a while!).

Inshalah, I'm going to start reading the Quran again, today... maybe writing it here will give me the motivation to do it...

Iftar Menu Items so far (only mentioning the successes here... had a few flops as well):

1. Sandwiches (roast beef, chicken fajita, mint chutney & cucumber, tandoori chicken on a croissant)
2. Spaghetti with meatballs (really quick and easy!)
3. Brownies
4. Tuna kababs
5. Fruit chaat (standard, everyday fare...)
6. Mint lemonade
7. Mango pineapple smoothie
8. Chaat (the way I had it in Princeton, a hot samosa topped with chickpeas, cold yogurt and tamarind sauce)
9. Chapli kabab (fail :-( )


  1. I loved the samosa chaat.. :)

    And pray some for me too... You know by name wali.. :)

  2. this all sounds yum!

  3. LMAO @ Chapli kabab. its called Chapal not chapli... jooti kabab.
    BTW ramadan here in ksa is great time nights turn into days & days into nights sleeping.

  4. Sandwiches for iftari ?

  5. wow.. Yum! You seem to be a good cook!

    @ anonymous:its Chapli kebab not chapal kebab.. chapli is a word in pushtoo!
