Assalam aliakum & peace to all
Well I'm back to fasting
(I am so glad - really I am! I felt so left out of everything)
I can say that today is a bit hard, after not fasting for a week
(and going back to drinking coffee) I am cultivating a nice headache
which I know will get worse as the day goes on. Other than that
everything has been going great - mashallah - with the readings
and praying. As for cooking I've hit a wall, its not like I don't want to
be cooking but I've run out of ideas that will last a few days (my new
strategy is to cook and have it last a few days or use the leftovers
for a 'new' meal) I think tonight I'll just have my pasta/shrimp alfredo
and for hubby I'll make something 'new' (just don't know what that is yet!
I printed off a few recipes that I want to try over the weekend!
One of them is a Brioche I got the recipe from the
Stranger in this Dunya blog - it looks so yummy and is filled
with nutella! (oh my sweeth tooth! lol) I know hubby will melt
over the nutella as well (he's a big child sometimes!)
The other is a Greek walnut cake soaked in syrup, this
recipe is from one of the posters on an Algerian woman forum
I think I'll try that one in a few weeks when I have guests coming over,
although I probably shouldn't really be making something 'new' and un-tried
when I have guests - but you know what I always end up doing just that!
So that is how my day is going - wish it were going a bit faster.
I've lost all motivation for this job that I am in but it pays the bills
and for now since I can't find anything else it will have to do - but
after 10 years at the same place, my body and mind would like to
be somewhere else!
